Shaped by a background in geology and archaeology, Delphine Nardin is a self-taught jeweler. Delphine’s jewelry journey started in 2010, when she discovered frosted glass on beaches of Brittany and made unique pieces from materials gleaned.
Delphine Nardin’s approach is similar to that of an artist. Each piece is unique and is born of her intuition and unexpected discoveries. The materials carry memory and energy. Delphine is drawn to materials with delicate qualities, transparent, worn and faded tones, raw materials, gleaned, with imperfect edges. She looks for marks of time. Sea glass made beautiful through erosion. Rough stones formed billions of years ago. Other vestiges gleaned from here and there.
