Born in Perpignan, a town in South of France, arts and designing were never an unfamiliar territory for Frédéric. He pursued a career in luxury product design in Creapole design school in Paris and later, he followed his dream of jewellery designing by joining Ecole du Louvre. “I am a designer with over 14 years of experience. I collaborated with luxury groups and maintained a deep relationship with Parisian jewelers and international signature brands with a strong and broad experience in design - particularly in jewellery and the design of precious objects and accessories,” says Frédéric.

In his tenure as jewellery designer he has collaborated with renowned brands like Nina Ricci, Arthur Bertrand Jewellery, Swarovski, Mont Blanc and Roberto Cavalli. He was part of many luxury workshops at Vendôme, which allowed him to follow the design process - from the technical, conceptual, and creative process to the fabrication - and all its subtleties and technicalities. Before he founded his design studio in Paris, he was the head designer for Mathon (Paris) for 6 years.

“My sources of inspiration are the Fine Arts, the famous muses of history, and antique legends, but what influences my creations the most is the observation of nature in motion.” For example dewdrop on leaves, the beating of a dragonfly’s wings, the sudden blooming of a flower, or the flight of a bird. The final drawings translate these

Do his designs resonate with the charm of the romantic city of Paris? To this he says, “My designs are exhibited all over the world like Japan, Emirates, China and the US. I can find my inspiration everywhere, but only where beauty lives. I like old cities like Samarcande and Roma. Humanity is a real treasure where I can find many inspirations.”

Frédéric’s creative process is a rich creative universe that incorporates all styles and inspirations, his design studio is where design is transformed into concept, starting with hand drawn sketches. “I offer my expertise both in the knowledge of rare stones and innovative materials. I like to propose the best traditional practices paired with new technology in order to create collections and exceptional pieces.”
