Jewellery surprise, fascinate and sometimes question the idea of adornment. They also tell timeless stories. Some hold secrets, some celebrate, move to the tears or whisper silent words of love when others tell what we are, our strengths and beliefs.

Works by young jewellery designers Emmeline Hastings, Sowon Joo, Michelle Lung and Karin Roy Andersson are being exhibited in France for the first time.

Emmeline Hastings (United Kingdom)
Showing a unique approach to jewellery, Emmeline combines unexpected and contrasting materials in her Bristol studio. Using her signature techniques of hand carving acrylic and embedding it with metallic elements, she creates striking, beautiful and contemporary wearable sculpture. Working in Perspex acrylic, silver and gold, her pieces are light and wearable with mysterious patterns of gold and silver seemingly organic to the form.

Sowon Joo (South of Korea)
She is inspired by nature and the rites of passage that all living creatures experience, Joo creates meaningful jewelry pieces, that offer our dreary modern society a warmer and more meaningful atmosphere.

Michelle Lung (United Kingdom)
Obsessed with anything hand-making based, she likes the challenge of new and unconventional materials in her practice to create new techniques and aesthetics. She’s also fascinated by the crossover of value and want to explore the questionable shift of mentality surrounding value and possessions, Michelle tried to represent the fragmented nature of the digital sphere through using technological means of production like 3D printing, laser cutting and particularly CAD design, creating a technique and design process that could not be achieved just by hand.

Karin Roy Andersson (Sweden)
Karin Roy Andersson is attracted by multiplicity and recurrence. Her jewellery aims at generating harmony and balance through dynamic patterns. To Karin, a big part of art jewellery is communication. When a piece meets an audience the artist’s experiences are mixed with the thoughts and associations of others and the object develops.
