July 6, 2017: Discover the best modern handmade goods for the home in this week’s edition of the IAMTHELAB Gazette.

 

Born in eastern France, in the South of the Champagne, I grew up in an atmosphere of a very small village with parents who are artisans (cheese makers), what gave me from the earliest age a glimpse into the artisan craft world.

At 18 years old I left France to go on an adventure. I made my first pieces of jewelry in the Antilles, with painted quenetes seeds (Caribbean traditional fruit). I sold in markets and later on they used for various fashion shows in the Caribbean.

Thanks to my designs, I could continue my journey and it is Latin America, which will be the longest part, as I spent 7 years there, in total. Macramé, seeds and semi-precious stones became my new favorites materials.

It is in Guatemala where my path crosses Berenice’s (Lunaticart) with whom I exchange different techniques of macramé. At that time I didn’t know that I was talking to the woman of my life!

Jewelry making led me to India, Cuba, Canada, US, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Galapagos, Easter Island and Tahiti where I worked with leather and black pearls.

After Living for 5 years in Belle-Ile-en-Mer, I decided to open an art gallery/workshop in Paris, it is the birth of  ‘Goutte de Terre’ (drop of earth) in 2009.

With Goutte de Terre, I developed a work inspired by mainly by water. I love the fluidity and it is in nature that I observe it better.
