Behind the scenes in my atelier

October 24, 2019
Let me tell you all about my design and how they are made in my atelier in Amsterdam
Hi, great to have you here and welome to my website! I am Mélanie Pigeaud a goldsmith and jewelry designer from Amsterdam. Since the beginning of 2018 I have been on the a mission to make people more aware of the importance of buying handcrafted sustainable jewelry. This brand is born out the search for sustainable sophisticated jewelry with an edgy touch. I could not find it, so I decided to make it myself! 
Maybe you think why is it important to buy sustainable jewelry? Because there is so much gold and silver in the world that we can use to make new jewelry! The beauty of these precious metals is that (if correctly melted) you can always make something new of the same material! And the way gold and silver are found are not that kind for Mother Nature nor for the mine workers. All of my designs are telling a story behind the industry that could otherwise not be told. I see my designs as heroes of this industry. The mine workers cannot tell you in person so therefor my designs are speaking up for them!
Next to my own designs I also curate vintage jewelry since this is the perfect way to spice up your jewelry collection with unique items that get a second life of you wearing it! 
You can always come by my atelier in the center of Amsterdam on appointment, Love to meet you!  
Talk to you soon,
Mélanie Pigeaud!
