I am a French contemporary jewellery artist based in Berlin. Graduated in Art history and Archeology at University Paris X. I studied goldsmith and jewellery design in Paris. But contemporary jewellery got me and since then I would never step out!


For me, jewellery is a language. I speak this language sometimes better than my mother tongue! I always had difficulties to use words to express some of my ideas. When I discover contemporary jewellery I understood that it contains all the words I couldn't say. That's the way I work, each jewel I make is something I want to say to the others and I used them to communicate with the world. This can range from stealthy emotions to deep reflections. Once the jewels exisit I feel them as vessels of my mind travelling on the body. They start to be alive and step in the world to talk by themselves connect with who wear them. This is how they fit into a system of pass-on: of discourse but also as objects that will travel through the ages. This idea of Time, Transmission, Heritage, Human condition is leading a lot of my works.
