STORY  I  INTENTION  I  ETHICS

It is in a workshop nestled in a tropical garden in Dumbéa Rivière, in New Caledonia, that Moon Flower jewelry was born.

Self-taught, I learned the techniques and ancestral gestures of silver work from traditional silversmiths in India and South America, during the journey that took me for a few years on the roads of the world.

I owe a lot to the women of my family first of all, who initiated me to various craft techniques and tenderly awakened my creativity from a very young age, and so much also to the women and men of the world I met along the way, who shared with me with patience and generosity their cultural heritage, their precious know-how.

Sensitive to the beauty of the right gesture, to the nobility of sustainable materials, to the authenticity of handmade, i naturally tend to a slow design  approach.

"I am honored to be part of this long chain of women and men who,
since the dawn of time by shaping objects with their hands and with their soul,
hope to participate a little in the beauty of the world."

"I personally make each piece at the workbench, entirely by hand, with traditional tools. 

Each jewel is born from my imagination and was inspired by an emotion, an encounter, a journey...

Its creation requires know-how and patience, demands hours of work and many manufacturing steps to go from the raw material to the finished part: drawing, cutting, rolling, forging, stamping, hammering, engraving, welding, polishing...

All the jewels are in 925 silver, the enamels are previously made on a copper plate before being set on silver.

"... and because I deeply believe that an object carries an energy,
it is important to me to make each of my jewels in conscience."

" When you work, you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music [...]


By working you accomplish, from the most sublime dream,

a plot assigned to you when he was born.

When you work you fulfil a part of earth’s furthest dream, assigned to you when the dream was born,

And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life, And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.

And what is it to work with love?

It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.

It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.

It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit, And to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching. [...]


Work is love made visible. "

Work, in "The Prophet", Khalil Gibran
