1 / What was your path before the creation of your jewelry brand?
Originally from Lorraine, I studied in Lille, then moved to Paris for work. After 4 years as a graphic designer in the Konbini media and 1 year as artistic director at the Uzik agency, I decided, in January 2017, to launch myself full time in my brand.
I have no training related to jewelry but my job has guided me to this vocation. It was during my first months in Paris that I started creating jewelry. I founded Les Tatillonnes in August 2013. Since then, my love of jewelry has only grown and allowed me to develop my brand.
2 / How would you describe the Tatillonnes? What does the name of your brand mean?
The Tatillonnes are well-controlled lines, clean forms, big, bright and showy! I called my brand “Les Tatillonnes” because I like precision and I have two little perfectionist hands.
3 / What are the materials that you like to work and offer to your customers?
I love traditional jewelry. The association of gold and precious stones is sublime to me. I wanted to offer something like this to my customers but in a more contemporary way. So I had the idea to work plexi as a precious stone. There are all kinds of plexi: pearlescent, sequined, marbled, I’m fond of this material with infinite possibilities!
4 / What projects do you have in mind that you still have to do?
I would love to create objects that would be in line with my brand! And why not open a store in a few years!
6 / What are your new sources of inspiration for your current collections?
I would say that in general, I am inspired by everything around me: a building, a grid, a stained glass window … I also love the design, it gives me ideas of materials, colors and associations. And for this new collection, I have very vintage inspirations, while remaining graphic and clean.
