Happy to have been awarded the first prize in the Manufacturer category with my ZIGZAG bracelet.
The awards ceremony took place at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris ( MAD) on Thursday, November 25, 2021
This ZIGZAG bracelet, weighing 100 g, both sober and complex, is made of 130 gold bricks, staggered and connected by 260 joints. This design allows the creation of a jewel that is totally reversible, with great fluidity, similar to that of a chainmail. Each side of the bracelet presents a random alternation of angled bricks, decorated with facets both raw and polished in order to diffract light in many directions.
