Today, I want to introduce you a jewelery designer that I have follow since her beegings. Each creation has amazed me since over a year. It's time to meet the sparkling and talented Caroline de Benoist and discover her "serious fantasie".
Caroline had legal bakground and has worked for many years for large luxury houses. She was close to creation in her work, but after a while, it was no longer a source of fulfillment. The desire to change jobs began to take hold. During her vacation in Bali, she discovered a jewelry workshop for a personal order. The meeting of craftsmen and the discovery of their manufacturing techniques were decisive for the rest of his career. Back in Paris, Caroline made the decision to launch her brand.
Her jewels are colorful and delicious. Set in silver or gold plated silver with colored gemstones, the rings adorn the fingers with a certain elegance. Caroline shares her joy of life and offers a very interesting, varied and fresh jewels. Free in its creation and guided by the beauty of carefully selected stones, the Parisian designer offers a large range of jewelry in technicolor mode. An effective remedy against Parisian greyness.
Its cabochon-shaped gemstones are of different sizes and soft colors. The metal is plaited, hammered or beaded in a satin, glossy or matte finish. His creations are handmade in a traditional workshop in Bali.
Caroline de Benoist was inspired by the line "Les Polystones" of the shape of the roofs of the Balinese temples, consisting of accumulation of square roofs. The line "Les Perlés" draws its inspiration from the "Canang Sari", small baskets of offering made to the Balinese gods, composed of colorful flowers and aromatic sticks. Through the line "Les tressages", the designer wanted to highlight a very specific Balinese know-how in the technique of braiding money, entirely handmade. Silver is hot braided by the hand of man like wicker.
Pour la nouvelle collection « Soyouz », Caroline de Benoist présente une ligne plus épurée et sans pierres de couleur. Elle s’est inspirée du travail de la sculpture qui la fascine tant. Elle a ainsi souhaité mettre en avant le travail quasi sculptural de l’argent en imaginant certains modèles pour lesquels la pierre devient métal. Plus d’excuses pour ne pas craquer pour un bijou de Caroline de Benoist.
