My formal approach deconstruct the volumes and surfaces of existing objects, taking them out of their context so as to create new objects by abstracting to a greater or lesser extend those elements that represent figuration. My art is based on drawing, which incorporates new volumes and new lines into the composition. The graphic element is omnipresent throughout my work. The aim is to reveal the essence of an object through its volume, its shape, its lines, its colour and finish.
The addition of resin to the metal allows me to add colour to my jewellery. The light material also enables me to make larger jewellery that is not too heavy. Although my pieces are quite large, I am concern with their wearability. It is important to me that my creations should be both comfortable and sturdy in their appearance and their confection.
Dessin de bijoux. Chenelière Éducation, 2006.
The method proposed in this book brings together various drawing processes adapted to jewellery. It's applied to the technical drawing of instruments, sketches, the nuanced rendering of shadows and lights and the illustration of stones. The illustration of each model is explained in stages and in detail. Everyone will be able to choose the technique according to the destination of the drawing, either to design a model directly on paper, prepare a piece of jewellery for manufacture, archive his ideas, share them with colleagues or propose them to a customer.
