“A Jewel for Christmas”: my favourites!

Nov 29, 2017

The fourth edition of Un Bijou Pour Noël closed its doors a few days ago. If you followed me on social networks(Instagram and Facebook) during the event, you discovered some of my favourites from the different exhibitors. But I didn’t publish all the pictures I took during the event. So I propose you a small retrospective of the pieces that seduced me the most with many unpublished pictures. I hope that you will enjoy this selection and that it will make you want to treat yourself to the selected jewellers and designers. On the programme, amazing stones, high quality French products, artists’ jewellery and – above all – workshops and designers that I particularly appreciate for their kindness!

Marina is of Colombian origin and has been living in Paris for several years now. As an independent designer, she has worked for several big houses. Since 2015, she has been producing her own pieces and proposes her vision of jewellery through sober and airy pieces.

MW Paris

The designer Thu-Thao Le Thi is behind the name of the house. If you follow me in my wanderings and encounters, you have already seen pictures of her pieces here.

Marc Alexandre / Gabriel Leibacher

If Marc’s work is not unknown to you because I speak to you about it quite often, Gabriel’s work is certainly more so. After several years in Alsace, he joined Marc’s workshop to work with him. As much in love with opals and beautiful materials as his partner, he proposes a playful jewellery and objects like art pens.

Sandrine Huet

Sandrine is undoubtedly one of the revelations of the show. A jeweller and gemologist for over 25 years, she creates objects for the great houses. But it was the desire to highlight materials rarely used in jewellery that led her to create her first and very successful collection! The public was not mistaken, as she won the “visitors’ favourite” prize.

1- Aki pendant in gold, diamond, agate and microcrystallised quartz cut in the shape of leaves in our workshop, quartz with haematite inclusions from Madagascar, 9.59 cts. 2- Tourmente pendant in white gold, agate and quartz with inclusions of 10.37 cts. 3- Rayonnate pendant in yellow gold and fluorite of 31 g cut in our workshop. 4- L’Eclaircie pendant in white gold and fluorite, 25.7 g.
