Jeweler Dominique Audette plays with shape and volume, and combines interesting materials to create fascinating jewels like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Many of her one-of-a-kind pieces combine resin with bronze, sterling silver, and enamel.
“My formal approach deconstruct the volumes and surfaces of existing objects, taking them out of their context so as to create new objects by abstracting to a greater or lesser extend those elements that represent figuration. My art is based on drawing, which incorporates new volumes and new lines into the composition. The graphic element is omnipresent throughout my work. The aim is to reveal the essence of an object through its volume, its shape, its lines, its colour and finish.”– Dominique Audette
Audette’s interesting use of resin allows her to add color to her pieces, and also to make large pieces without adding excessive weight. It’s truly unique stuff.
