The Artisan

The French native Sylvette Blaimont is an artisan jeweler that creates unusual minimalist pieces characterized by a soft polish that could make you wonder if it was made by the swell of the sea. There is a search for interesting volumes and simplicity in the work of this fashion veteran who worked in Paris for A.P.C. and in New York for numerous fashion magazines as a freelancer before she launched her first line in 2003 after learning side by side with a goldsmith for two years and later on graduating from GIA (Gemological Institute of America).

Early on, Blaimont realized that the first impulse to create a piece was a little story; the day her son brought back a science paper called “Air Is Matter”, the Matter Ring was created, made out of gold edges framing air. There are also the inner visual promenades, dreaming of what she would like to wear. The pieces she just made for the summer are long gold drops punctuated with 4 diamonds, named Ellipsis because she was waiting for an answer, suspended between two moments. In 2016, she launched FABRIC; inspired by the weightlessness of textile, she attempt to capture its fluidity and discovered endless new possibilities that are unconstrained and in opposition to the solidity of metal.

Her pieces don’t follow trends; they seek lightness with a strong sense of style.
