Claire Lavendhomme, 2018, Belgium


When is a jewel beautiful? What it mean? For me, beautifulness expresses itself as a way of unveiling while concealing. Like a kind of modesty, of veiling. If I had to choose a jewel that would represent my signature, it would be a « pocket jewellery » that I make since 1999. The one presented here is called “&” which is like another signature representing the notion of communication present in the jewel.
