Rivages draws on memories
of past travels to conjure up the sea.
On the shores of beaches familiar and exotic,
near and far, from the Balearics and Seychelles
to Zanzibar and the Maldives,collected shells
were closely studied. Their fluid and complex forms
inspire the Rivages collection.
Forged of precious solid gold, five rings curl
and unroll into undulating shapes.
Rangali, Nungwi, Diakofti, Illetes and Tangalle
reflect the infinite waves and take us fleetingly
to magical seasides.
The delicate contrast between gold
and the colorful slivers of seashell
gives rise to necklaces, bracelets and pendants.
Recollections of far-flung journeys,
these prized creations pay homage
to the sandy seashore.
