Behind FLAV jewelry, there is an artist, Flavie Paris, the savoir-faire, the story of passion. An alchemie between the designer’s hands and precious materials like gold and diamond.
After she learned how to be a jeweler with Vincent Delaunay, first hand jeweler in Cartier, at Cartier International Jewelry workshop, rue de la Paix, in Paris. Flavie was in Cartier during 4 years. At the same time she studied at BJOP school in Paris. When the school was finished, she left Paris lo go to Hong Kong to work for Michelle Ong as a jewelry designer , during two years. In 2015, she came back to Paris and decided to open her first and own jewelry brand which the collection Paris by Paris is the celebrity. The 29th of october 2015, Flavie Paris received from the Chambre de Métiers et de l’Artisanat of Paris, the label of Craftswoman Master for art and precious metals manufacturing.
Originals and unique creations, made by hands in Paris with the french tradition, to leave a trace in time, as the promise of an eternal love.
The designer’s inspirations are varied and timeless, it comes as an evidence during short-lived time and it’s set on a sheet of paper before it’s born as moving gems.
This inspirations can be palpables:
An architectural monument, vegetation, symbols, boards of famous painters..
Or no palpables:
Souvenirs, feelings, fashion trends, mood..
Flavie is not inspired by modern or contemporary jewelry, to always do something new and surprising for her customers and always create news jewels.
The first desire of the designer, is to tell something through her jewelry, to tell a story. She will tell you indeed that “A jewel is more than a set of jewels. It was born from the passion of her designer and it is transmitted, it seals the generations. It is the love symbol and lives to give happiness : it’s the feeling of the person who love and the person is loved.”
The jewel isn’t only a nice thing, it must tell something to the person who wear it, this is the designer’s mission. All the jewels are beautiful because the beauty is subjective, but what’s a beautiful jewel ? A beautiful jewel is the development of feelings and souvenirs of the person who wear it. Why do we choose a jewel, it’s because our jewelry tells our story. A place we went, a lovely souvenir, a friendship, a special period of our life, a pure joy.
This is what Flavie Paris wants to give through her jewellery, putting her heart and passion in her creations : happy souvenirs, love, friendship, happiness.
Each jewel of FLAV Jewelry is created by Flavie Paris and crafted by hands in Paris with the french traditions as we can find in Place Vendôme.
No jewelry is made by 3D printer, each jewel is made by hands, that’s why the jewel is alive, unique, and magic. To make her jewelry, the designer uses a technique from antiquity : the lost-wax casting technique. Today, this technique consists to sculpt by hands a model or a jewel with tools like chisel, and after to make the print in a silicone mold in which the molten gold will be flowed and then we will have the jewel.
This technique, the designer learnt it before she was a jeweler. Indeed, Flavie got a bachelor’s degree in History of art and Archeology at the faculty Sorbonne Paris IV. Her passion for archeology and ancient jewelry is more that technique because she’s actually working on a new collection directly inspired from antiquity, ancient myth, enhanced by protecting talismans. This collection will be available soon,
But that’s a secret..
