This is the story of a handcrafted creation of jewelry, beads and buttons.
This adventure began about fifteen years ago, I had become accustomed during my research of enamels to make samples on which I was doing my tests. To find a colour or a formula, it sometimes takes thirty samples to develop the colours and materials desired. The tests piled up in boxes and on shelves, but once the colour found, were no longer useful. I thought that was a pity; sometimes, even if the colour was not the one I wanted, it was beautiful.
I started to make ceramic buttons, it is an object that I particularly like for its simplicity and the originality it brings to a garment.
Their story goes back to the dawn of time and keeps track of vanished civilizations.
My mother is a knitter and dressmaker, she gave me, I believe, this sensibility.
Of course, after a while, it was buttons that settled on the shelves, buttons of ceramic, porcelain, raku, big and small and I then decided to market them. From one discovery to another, I really set to work, it was no longer trials but true ceramic pieces with a search for form, texture and color. What an exciting adventure !
Then came the raku beads creation. Round, at first, classic and generous then I settled (and sometimes got lost) in the search for forms and volumes, it’s infinite! I use enamel bases that I make, and for color, metal oxides and ceramic dyes.
Recently, I started a production of porcelain beads, finely-worked for the study of the translucent side of this material. This production is for emotions.
