Marion Lebouteiller
Marion is an emerging French jeweller who now lives and works in England. Her creations are born out of her fascination for materials and colours. She has a background as a chaser and patinater on bronze sculptures that influences deeply her approach to jewellery.

Whilst combining silver and bronze she alludes to the natural and the cultural worlds and highlights contrasts of colours, textures, concept of full and void. She is inspired by her surroundings and by the Japanese culture and the ‘Wabi-Sabi’ philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. She likes leaving space to the unexpected and tends to let the materials express by themselves, hoping to get the pure essence from them. Experimenting with lost wax casting and patination processes allows her to materialise her sensitive perception of the world.
