What a pleasure it is to discover Monica Rossi’s jewelry at White Bird! I met this Italian designer in the early 2000s when she had a boutique in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Her 19-carat gold, of an infinitely subtle color, is shaped like old lace. Her necklaces are inspired by rosaries. Monica Rossi hunts down miniature elements and has others (like her crocheted bears) made by Italian artisans. She then assembles them into “story necklaces”. Her leitmotif: the engraved secret message placed inside a medallion, a ring or rolled gold leaf. Pure poetry.
On her Caillou site, Anne-Lise Delsol sells her selection of antique pieces and solo earrings mode from elements adorning hatpins.
Thierry Vendome, the son of Jean Vendome, is also a jeweler.
Belgian designer Céline Daoust just opened her first store in Paris, rue de Grenelle.
Lise Guitton, the Inouïtoosh’s designer who works with both scarves and jewelry, has dreamed up a large silk square printed with precious stones.
I wanted to know more about Dina Level because her name keeps cropping up over and over again in the jewelry world…
One of the nice finds in the in the brand new Parisian shop of Marin Montagut: the mineralogical plates painted in watercolor.
