“I create intimate and playful adventures for the hopelessly curious.”
At Rue Pigalle, my purpose is to shine a light on exceptional artisans and the captivating jewelry they create. It just so happens that those people are to be found in some of the world’s most seductive settings. I handcraft experiences for jewelry and art lovers who want to peer behind the curtain at the lives of the artists, expand their minds by exploring beyond the obvious, and who take a childlike delight in the discovery of uncommon places and people.
“I grew up in a family that revered craftsmen and craftsmanship, so I knew I wanted to be in the business of beautiful objets."
WHAT GIVES A JOURNEY ITS CACHET
“At the end of the day, it’s really about the intimate and personal connections we make with each other. That’s why our experiences are limited to small, select groups of just ten likeminded people. When we meet the artists in their studios, listen to their life stories and see the workbench and tools they use with their own hands, we close the circle between who we are and whose work we wear."
HOW JEWELRY CONNECTS US
“In my family jewelry was always a marker of a bond and an important personal signature. My mother wore an art deco gold necklace – she rarely took it off. When it passed to me I noticed that the metal had absorbed her perfume. The necklace was alive with her. I have many pieces in my jewelry box and each one is a relationship. With a place, a moment, an idea, a person.”
