Artist list

Cécile Bertrand
By meticulously fashioning scraps of cloth into outlandish yet highly wearable jewellery, textiles are to Cécile Bertrand what gold is to the goldsmith. Her work is renowned not only for her skill but also her commitment to ecology. “Fed up with being dictated to by this season’s fashions and the wastefulness of our throwaway society” is the statement she made through her necklaces which bear no resemblance to classic jewellery but have a subtle beauty in their originality.

Made of scraps of old ties, silk and other materials picked up in jumble sales or other secret sources, Cécile Bertrand’s jewellery is as colourful as it is delicate, often with rounded and generous forms. By creating value from “nothing”, she revolutionized our concept of beauty, using charm and lightness to raise some of the main issues facing today’s society.
