As a longtime fan, you can only imagine my delight and how honored I felt having received an email from her! And with that a wonderful relationship began.
In her own words …
« When I discovered Carrés de Paris on the Internet, I was so surprised and delighted to read the chapter on my work as a carré artist, that I decided to come in contact with the founder of this lovely and well documented website.
That is how our relationship came to life, with a mutual understanding and taste for the same HERMÈS vintage carrés.
Unfortunately, at the dramatic departure of Jean-Louis Dumas, Hermès emblematic and charismatic CEO, my ten years collaboration was soon over.
I explain to Carrés de Paris, that I was still creating but in a different way : I am, since almost two years, inventing and manufacturing custom jewellery and Carrés de Paris loved them so much that a decision was taken to give them exposure on their website.
I proposed to associate visually my vintage carrés designs that are for sale at Carrés de Paris to one of my jewels, and voilà, « just like that », that is how it is all started, how exciting !!! »
Valérie Dawlat Dumoulin
Here is an introduction to the enchanted world of Madame Valérie … enjoy
Always an artist, Valérie has created numerous collages and paintings, but more recently discovered a new passion in creating custom jewelry. At first she salvaged and repurposed all of her own jewelry, and as popularity of her one-of-a-kind jewelry grew in her native France, she began to search for unique vintage bits and pieces at flea markets and thrift shops. Self-taught and with an exquisite eye for both beauty and design, she as with her Hermès scarf designs drew her inspiration from flowers, insects, eternal symbols like hearts and crosses, the sea and marine life. She skillfully combines unexpected items with copper wire and magically gives new life to butterflies, flowers and dragonflies!
Merci Mme Valérie de continuer à enrichir notre monde avec de nouvelles créations et une beauté époustouflante.
