WHO ARE YOU? TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF!
My name is Noémie, I am 31. 8 years ago, I started my small jewelry factory.
WHAT DO YOU MAKE?
I make subtle narrative metal jewelry, mostly with silver and gold plated brass.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED AS MAKER?
After 5 years studying art and jewelry making, I decided to start my own little enterprise. I always wanted to make pieces of art that people can carry with them all the time.
WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCTS THE BEST?
All of my product are totally handcut with a little saw. So each piece is a bit different from the other.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR WORKSPACE
I share my workspace with 4 other creative women. We opened a little concept store which is both a shop and our workshop. This is an open space so our customers can see us working. This is a really nice place!
TELL US ABOUT WHERE PEOPLE CAN FIND YOUR PRODUCTS?
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I am originally from Strasbourg, France. I moved 8 years ago in Lyon.
WHAT HAS BEEN MAKING YOU EXCITED LATELY?
What has been making me excited lately is the launch of my new project collectiondeportraits.tumblr.com I started to make collections of jewelry for and in collaboration with other people, each time with someone different in limited edition of 20 pieces. This will be presented like portraits. I just published the first portrait. There will be a new portrait/collection 3 times a year.
IF YOU COULD LEARN A NEW SKILL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would love to know everything about stones.
COFFEE OR TEA?
I drink a lot of green tea but every working day starts with a cup of coffee and a chat with my colleagues.
ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
I would say I am rather a morning person. I always feel bad when I wake up late.
WHAT DO YOU WATCH OR LISTEN TO IN THE BACKGROUND WHEN YOU ARE MAKING?
I listen to hip-hop music while working.
