Sylvaine comes from the West of France, she has always been a true art lover, drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. She focused on art and design subjects in school, before a-two-year traditional jewellery training in l’Ecole TANE in Brittany. Never without a sketchbook, she collects them like journals where jewellery design ideas mix with expressive, surrealist or traditional drawings. Each design appears to her first as a vision that she translates in 3D using silver, gold, and gemstones. Sylvaine uses many different techniques and especially enjoys hand-engraving and wax carving processes. Inspired by mystical forests, dreams and tales. she sees faces in everything and they appear a lot in her work. She likes to associate organic shapes with geometric lines. Her latest collection is an exploration of patterns which can be overlooked in nature. She creates imaginary mini-ecosystems, the layered sculptural compositions are at once organic and futuristic.
