Passionate about the handcrafting process, Hélène’s unique pieces are suffused with intensively repeated details. Her inspiration is drawn from the ornate allure of jewellery dating from Byzantine and Victorian eras. She uses decorative filigree technique and the detailed nature of her work creates an intimacy with each of her pieces. Her work is further enhanced by the use of coloured gemstones and pearls, each set in and delicate array of gold. The idea of passing on heirloom underpins her concepts.
