Jewelry of Chardavogne specializes in hand-crafted fine silver and gold jewelry. The hand-wrought designs are original, beautiful, and wearable.
Jewelry of Chardavogne was established in 1970 by Jacques Hemsi. He and several other craftspeople pursued their talents with the goal of using daily life and work as a way of inner development. This still remains the source of Jacques' inspiration. Year after year his business and reputation continue to grow.
Jacques' gold and silver jewelry is an imaginative blend of filigree, applique, interlocking planes, twisted wire, and an endless variety of other three-dimensional techniques. Every January through March, at his atelier, Jacques creates new designs by working directly with the metals. He then makes his own molds and castings. This allows him to modify designs according to which stones are used as well as the specific requests of his customers. His many returning customers can always count on finding their old favorites and also something new.
Jacques is an official Sugarloaf Crafts Festival exhibitor.
