The alchemy of the elements
In PIERRE d'ALEXIS creations, there is something of Marguerite Yourcenar's "L'Œuvre au Noir". The symbolism of the materials, shapes, colors and the empirical know-how bring an esoteric dimension to the jewelry.
Grégoire Maret, shows his constant artistic approach, through the collection of his creations which he started more than 20 years ago.
The fabulous treasures of ancient civilizations have always fascinated him by their artistic richness. From the beginning, he has sought to revisit and reinterpret ancient techniques and symbols. After tribal, Egyptian and Viking art, he turned to his own origins. This is how he discovered the impressive cultural richness of Celtic art whose imagination inspired the first pieces of his unique and numbered jewelry collection.
The motivation of his designs are based on the three aspects: His passion for gemstones, his interest in the base materials’ secrets and the triskelion. (solar symbol with three interlocking spirals represented in his collection as a tricoloured braid)
The realization of the "Cosmic Flower", where the 3 gold braid represents a plant dynamic with an underlying esotericism, is a major piece representative of the evolution of his research and his original style.
