À propos / About

Passionnée par l'artisanat, Hélène réalise des pièces uniques, intemporelles, élégantes et raffinées.
Elle puise son inspiration dans la joaillerie ancienne des époques byzantines et victoriennes en les réinterprétant pour créer un style “vintage contemporain”. Tous ses bijoux sont finement travaillés, ciselés et embellis par des pierres précieuses.
Chaque pièce de joaillerie est créé et réalisé à la main, avec un soin, dans son atelier entre Londres et Nantes.

Hélène Turbé was brought up in France, in a little West island called Ile dYeu.
Very young, she was fascinated by illustrations in childrens books, her mothers haberdashery and carving wood.
After working 10 years in Paris as a producer Manager in the media industry, in 1998, she moved out to London and joined London Metropolitan University to study Jewellery. Since graduating with a first class honour degree in 2004, Hélène continues to work passionately in her studio.

Passionate about the handcrafting process, Hélène’s unique pieces are suffused with intensively repeated details.  Her inspiration is drawn from the ornate allure of jewellery dating from Byzantine and Victorian eras. She uses decorative filigree technique and the detailed nature of her work creates an intimacy with each of her pieces.  Her work is further enhanced by the use of coloured gemstones and pearls, each set in and delicate array of gold. The idea of passing on heirlooms underpins her concepts.
