Isabelle is French and has lived 20 years in London. She just moved back to Paris. After a 15-year career in finance and banking, she felt an urge to express herself in a different way and she decided to retrain academically. She obtained an HND in jewellery in 2008 and a Research MA in 2010, both from the Sir John Cass Department of Art, Media and Design (London Metropolitan University).

Her work is exhibited in many galleries around the world.

Isabelle believes jewellery is the most powerful, yet underrated, means of communicating visually between people and she wants to promote jewellery as a catalyst of social interactions, as intriguing objects generally reveal interesting persons.

Her silicone brooches and necklaces are rooted into the most traditional heritage through the use of iconic pieces of classic jewellery. Her intention is that their original arrangement, the use of unexpected non-precious material, and the white uniform colour make those brooches and necklaces visually intriguing and socially communicative.

Each piece is handmade and is a one-off piece or part of a limited edition.
