I was finishing my studies; I had to find my way,
I was recalling all my last 3 years art projects
I found myself with one project that caught my eye, it was the jewellery one, it just took one to be made and I completely fell in love.
It really stuck to my skin.
Drawing is natural to me; it’s something I’ve been doing since I was a kid at home.
What I needed was to learn the drawing technique.
Once I got all my degrees, I thought: « What do I really want to do ? »
Discovering CAD related job (Computer Aided Design), I found something interesting, a mixt between technique and design.
Mathon creations blow me away completely.
This energy found in the designs interested me a lot.
I wanted to take part.
In this industry, we receive drawings, we start from them and we create on the computer the piece.
As the jeweller does, or as he did a few years ago in wax or prototype.
On the computer we work firstly on style to interpret a 2D drawing into a 3D dimension, then technic.
We have to think of everything. We cannot offer a beautiful shape if that’s not achievable. That would not work.
Whoever creates the drawing has a precise vision of what he wants.
Our main work is to transcribe the designer’s vision into technical.
We work in a very creative environment; we witness a product take shape.
Thanks to our computer we can give birth to incredible design.
It’s a team work between creator, designer and the jeweller.
We are a team; we work together towards projects that highlight our know-how.
When the piece is completed, it’s a team work, but we all tend to appropriate it for oneself.
In the end, it belongs to everyone at a different stage from conception to completion.
It’s our work, our piece; because we know that we work with exceptional craftsmen.
We work as a team and we respect one another. We are lucky to work with such talented and passionate people.
We give our very best; we work towards the same aim: perfection.
Today, our team work with passion whist breathing new life into the jewellery piece.
We all listen to each other; it’s the beautiful end result that matters at the end. Constructive criticism helps us to move forward and give our best.
Today within the design department we work together to bring our expertise and skills.
I am fortunate to collaborate with two people with 15 years of experience. Their vision, job insight impacts positively my work.
We all have different views and experiences that nourish our projects. We constantly share new ideas between us.
I believe that each person working here is making its contribution and playing a role into each Mathon piece.
Every time we get the feeling that the pieces are almost alive.
Roger drawings, paintings and creative world made perfectly sense to me.
My wish today is to give access to more people to his creations.
Each step of the design and manufacturing process are coming along to bring the piece alive.
We are fortunate to have so many archives and be part of a company with such a legacy.
We try to revert back to the house origins to use our identity and infuse modernity into our creations.
Our job is to make use intelligently of our craft heritage to design exquisite jewellery pieces in line with the current trend.
If a piece is beautiful it means that we did the job. That’s the most important.
A piece may be technically perfect but without a soul and style we will have failed.
Some pieces have more soul than others. These are subjective and depend on each experiences, life and sensitivity.
I am pretty sure that many of our customers who purchase our Place Vendôme pieces can tell the quality and soul of our pieces.
