'Fingers In the Nose' Silver-Gilt Necklace

About
Made in

Local jeweller Violette Stehli has imagined a series of silver-gilt (vermeil) medals engraved with literal translations in English of her favourite French expressions. Each limited-edition medal in the 'Pardon My French' series is handmade in her Parisian workshop and hangs on a chain (44cm). In French, “Les doigts dans le nez” is an expression meaning something was easy to do: “easy as pie”, “a piece of cake”  “ a walk in the park”… You get the picture! 

After a childhood in California and a teenage years in France, the jeweller has long enjoyed translating her favourite expressions between the languages. It is this personal ritual that led to the creation of this mischievous and poetic series.

Limited-edition of 30 pieces.

Medal and Chain in Silver-Gilt (22 carat gold plated solid silver)

The Paris it-girl orchestrating collaborations that connect artists to French savoir-faire, for witty, limited-edition interiors objects

Born-and-bred Parisienne Emily comes from a long line of successful, hard-working creatives – most famously her aunt Isabel, whose eponymous label continues to define Parisian chic. After graduating, a stint curating the shop at Musée Maillol provided an epiphany, and aged 27, she founded her creative agency Studio Marant. The collab-happy laboratory’s projects have since hopped genres, drawing on emerging talents for its productions – be it staging Sonia Rykiel’s 50th anniversary or creating pop-up boutiques and capsule collections. Together with Hugo Matha, she’s now launched French Cliché, a roving gallery and label with a Paris base that turns icons of French culture into witty, limited-edition interiors objects: think ceramic croissants reappropriated as teapots.
