“Producing something ethnic means creating an unprecedented version of a jewel as an ornament, replete with magical and symbolic significance.
Arcane memories, archetypes shared by all civilisations: adornment makes the body more and more powerful. It’s as if an ornament were an enchantment, a form of protection, a symbol.
It’s something we still do today, perhaps unconsciously. But I make a conscious effort to imagine every woman going out into the world with her message, to give voice to her charm, making her spirit shine and her elegance stand out: that’s how my jewels come to life.
The imagination knows no limits.”
