Ambroise Degenève

The anachronic theme is omnipresent in the work of this Young, Talented “HEAD” (Geneva) educated jeweler. The assumed treatment of his solid silver jewelry, often oxidized, evokes the raw primeval crudeness of ancient civilizations.

Avid in the exploration of ancient techniques and surface experimentation, Ambroise Degenève dares play with the ethic jewelry code by visually deteriorating or obscuring precious metal and offering a sophisticated spotlight to the humblest material.

Strong, surprising, one-off jewelry, hybrids of minimal design (style), the uniqueness of this work appeals to those of an independent nature (spirit) who enjoy to playfully mock at the code (rules) of jewelry.
