Nelly CHEMIN creator of contemporary jewelry

 

'Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together'  John Ruskin

 

I'm a young contemporary jewellery designer working in the Geneva region of France. After six years of studies and several years of practice, I started my own business. Most of my creations are made in silver which I shape, cut and finish through a hand-made process in my studio.

 

I try to make authentic, simple and sensitive jewelry, which reflects a bit of myself.

Making jewelry is about the balance between technical crafting skills and creation. I like to spend my spare time wandering in the city or get myself lost in nature during long walks, my camera on my shoulder, looking for the good light that will help me t
o find inspiration.
