Lignée - 2017 -
Jewellery collection drawing thin lines on the body composed by thin lines drawing themselves
on the body.
This collection is inspired by the instinctive gesture of the paintings seen on some native populations.
As one of the first ornamental gesture of humanity, body-painting exists since time immemorial demonstrating a universal creativity connecting humans together in rituals, of magical, mystical or religious activities. In the Omo Valley in South Ethiopia, the marks are traced with a lot a freedom and expressivity enhancing the capacities of the ornamented bodies, to make them stronger, more confident or charming.
The jewellery collection Lignée uses the line as a tool that can evolve freely in a light body gesture.
The pieces are drawn on the body, sliding in its curves with smoothness and delicacy. The fineness of the jewels allows it to evolve and vibrate with the moves of its wearer. Each line waves and lives, enhancing the body parts it is connected to expressing its emotions.
Produced in a thin steel sheet chemically cutted, the pieces are very light and delicate and seams almost unreal. Playing with the elasticity of the material, small clips are directly drawn on the outlines of the jewels to create a simple closing strap without addition of material.
It is then a graphical element that gives a strong identity to the collection.
Sets of jewels composed of necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings.

The tapestry links closely its pattern to the tangible material that composes it. The cotton and wool stitches depicts the smoke particles with an overabundance of material, creating three-dimensional patterns on the surface of the tapestry.
