MATTHIEU CHEMINÉE
"I have a passion for ethnic techniques from around the world. I am fascinated with the know-how, the transmission of the craft and the transformation of raw or recycled material into beautiful ornaments by gold and silversmiths of those different countries.

I started making a living as a jeweller by stamping traditional Navajo bracelets and Concho belts for Native American Indian jewellers. Stamping holds a special place in my heart; it is a technique that can be done anywhere and is a technique used all across Africa. Stamps can be made out of any piece of steel. Often the design is a geometrical shape, and used as an accent to decorate the metal, draw a line or just to add a few motifs here and there. I have been using this technique for over 20 years and developed my own form of stamping by creating patterns that filled the entire piece of metal.

Over the years my stamped design evolved; my recent pieces are made of those patterns that are then anti-clastically shaped into bracelets and rings. “Stampclastic” as I call it, is a tribute to all the jewellers around the world who transform any old piece of steel into tools or any piece of metal into beautiful jewelry."
