A timeless jewelry designer, Charlotte CHESNAIS makes ingenious pieces that flirt with both jewelry and sculpture.
"The starting point: my sketchbook is filled with pages that are covered with multiple drawings neither perfect nor pretty.
Then there is the atelier, a crucial part of my creative process. Here, under the blows of hammers and the heat of a flame, my sketches take shape and my thoughts become three-dimensional.
I like these moments of exchange with the craftsmen; we bend, we cut, we lengthen a curve until we find the perfect balance, as a sculptor would do. "
