Jewellery designer and maker based in London, Julie Nicaisse discover her passion for jewellery-making in 2006. All her pieces are handcrafted with passion, using traditional techniques so as to create contemporary jewellery. She produce one-off pieces and offers a bespoke service, where she works on commission. In 2016 she launched a new line of “ready to wear” jewellery. The main used materials are sterling silver and 18 CT (white, yellow and red) gold which she often combine with semi-precious and precious stones to add colour and contrast. Sometimes, she like to incorporate found materials, such as shell or glass found on a beach, a piece of wood from the forest, or a stone picked up on her path. To her, a found object can have more value and beauty than an expensive gemstone. Her inspiration is mainly found in nature’s patterns, shapes, forms, textures and colours. The shapes and colours of plants and especially flowers are reproduced in her designs. Observing fauna and insect movements helps her to create original catches and clasps for example. She get inspired by animal prints to add texture to her pieces. The ‘Art Nouveau’ natural shapes and the Japanese textile flower print both have a strong influence on her designs, but she also find inspiration in everyday life, just by observing the surroundings.
