“I believe in the power of jewellery
to reveal the depths of every person.”

Édéenne

Where it all started

2003

It was during her first dive that Édéenne’s fate was sealed. Finding herself disoriented by a whirlpool, she rose to the surface too quickly. To combat decompression and despite her panic, she had to dive back down.

There, at the bottom of Lake Maggiore, in that second where anxiety fades and the mind crystallises again, time seemed to stop. The rays from the northern Italian sun plunged into the lake, creating an underwater rainbow. The pebbles, at the bottom, were suddenly transformed into diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds…

For Édéenne, this was a sign: she would become a jeweller.

Technique at the service of Art.

1983 - 2005

Maison La Sorbonne

1983

At the Sorbonne where she studied for a doctorate in the History of Art.

Maison-Centre-Pompidou

1998

At the Centre Pompidou, the heart of Contemporary Art.

Maison-Le-Louvre

2005

At the HBJO, rue du Louvre, mastering jewellery-making techniques.

In Paris she discovered that she was not there to follow tradition, but to create a new one. By forming an alliance between her boldness and studies in Science and then Art with French expertise, she invented new ways of thinking about Fine Jewellery.

With little concern for preconceptions and technical impossibilities, she discovered an implausible poise that resulted in her ability to glorify a diamond between two arum leaves, plant the sword Excalibur into a 125 carat citrine, create butterflies that seem as though suspended in mid-flight…

She transcends the jewel, transforming it into a sculpture like no other. She uses stones and gold like a painter uses pigments. Technical feats step aside to reveal true poetry.

A House is Born.

2000 - 2005

Whether drawing inspiration from universal legends, fairy tales, her travels or meetings with clients, her work always involves the translation of emotion, exalting the fanciful and touching each person deeply with every piece.

Édéenne sees jewellery as the mirror of the person wearing it. It should reflect the fundamental values and history of each person. This was to become the philosophy of the House. A world emerged where only human values are of importance.

The Jeweller’s Portrait

Since 2008

Maison Aquarelles

When Vermeer, Rembrandt, Ingres and Dali painted portraits of their collectors, they revealed the soul of each of them on canvases that went on to become masterpieces.
Today, Édéenne takes inspiration from this great tradition.
In the privacy of her workshop, she receives her clients, immerses herself in their history and transposes their values into her pieces of jewellery.
Every Édéenne creation is the crystallisation of a meeting, an experience, suspended in time.

Exhibitions around the world.

Édéenne for Mellerio.

2013

Mellerio dits Meller, the oldest French Fine Jewellery House, invited Édéenne to design and create a collection in honour of its 400th anniversary. Twenty-one models and four Fine Jewellery pieces celebrating grace, sensuality and femininity took centre stage at Haute Couture week 2013. Press coverage of the collection resounded internationally.

Édéenne for Lane Crawford.

2014

On the invitation of Lane Crawford, the most prestigious luxury department store in Hong Kong, Édéenne transposed seven Chinese stories into mysterious pieces. Invisible mechanisms turned a toad into the guardian of the moon and a legendary lotus leaf into shelter for a fairy in white jade.
