French jeweler Julie Decubber specializes in antique porcelain and earthenware plates. She is turning ordinary objects into unique jewels in order to tell people’s stories and explore the theme of memory. Universal but particular to each country, plates are part of our daily lives, our customs. Decubber cuts, melts, or assembles pieces in order to highlight what is precious in the ordinary, applying techniques of the jeweler, stonecutter, and potter to generate elegant and unexpected combinations. Inspired by travel, she has trained with jewelers and craftsmen from several countries, and on her return to France she studied with a master of art. She now lives and works in Suth of France.
