Biography

Édith Bellod was born in 1965 in Normandy. She graduated in Textile design at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, and worked in the costume and scenery workshops of Paris Opera House. In 1995 and 1996 she spent two years in Mexico, developing and refining her techniques, observing and absorbing the loom weaving crafts performed in some of the Mexican Indian villages.

From 1997 to 2004, having returned to Paris, she worked as a designer for some textiles manufacturers, and then in 2005 she moved to Barcelona to begin a study on jewellery making at the Massana school. In 2005 she won a prize at the Contemporary Jewelry Design Competition in Enjoia, near Barcelona. She currently lives and works in Berlin.

Her necklaces seem to be made with sweets, like those that were once worn around the neck and eaten while walking. In actual fact they are made in porcelain, by an artist who has made her passion for molecular architecture her trade.

Édith says that “Everything started from a mistake… during the exciting process of creation, it sometimes happens that the material itself guides your hands. Sensations, memories and impressions affect every step. Let it happen. make it happen.” Her experimental approach is revealed not only by her search for unusual materials, but also in the aesthetics and style of her collections.

The most intriguing and fascinating objects are without doubt the jewellery pieces made principally in porcelain. They combine the characteristically pure whiteness of the material, interrupted by more gentle colours and pastel shades, and by delicate contaminations with various types of metal, bringing each of her creations to life.
