Marion Lebouteiller

Marion is a French jeweller who lives and works in Hampshire, England. Trained in the traditional Arts and Crafts Ecole Boulle in Paris, Marion draws her inspiration from her surroundings but also from the Japanese culture and the “Wabi-Sabi” philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Today, her background as a sculptor in a bronze foundry deeply influences her approach to contemporary art jewellery. She has been experimenting with a sculptor’s wax she heats up then twists and stretches to create stunning pieces later to be cast in silver or recycled gold.
