Jarry des Loges, Artist-designer of Jewellery Art,
I was introduced to painting and visual arts as an autodidact.
I quickly found my way in the creation of art jewellery and
sculptures, and I got caught up in the adventure. Confidence
in myself and conviction gave me the energy to work for
several years with renowned high-fashion designers worldwide,
such as Christian Lacroix, Louis Feraud, Nina Ricci and
Stephane Saunier. The taste for colours, materials and
mixtures were complementary, and motivated us to make
creations very rich in expression. The time came to leave
Paris, to face a new future. Now I have been in the Perigord,
meeting place of inspiration and creation, for nine years. I
look at the universe and the beyond speaks to me.
In my creations, I combine different materials, such as stones
of all kinds (malachite, agate, onyx, jet, lapis lazuli,
turquoise, coral, garnet, carnelian, peridot, jade,
mother-of-pearl ...), glass paste, antiques, gold leaves,
glass, meteorites, snake skin, dinosaur bones ... The sources
of my inspiration are many and constantly changing. The only
constant: nature, which gives me most of the components of a
jewel or a sculpture, and influences my view of things. I tell
stories in my creations. I mix time and cultures, looking for
global harmony. I am part of the microcosm of the human tribe.
I capture the energy of the cosmos, I transmute it by creating.
It flows like a river.
The beyond is a part of the reflection of my soul.
