“I’m Anaïs Paulard, a French artist jeweller now based in Scotland, just graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee. ”
Anaïs’ art jewellery explores our emotional states and their effects on others. Her work is inspired by human experience. A beginning and an end; birth – death. In between things happen: falling in love, loss, disease, moving… A balance between happiness and sadness, between colour and darkness. Anaïs likes to make connections between people and create a deep interaction between her jewellery and the wearer. By spreading pigments, leaking ink, blowing polystyrene beads, her work becomes alive, leaving the marks and traces of our feelings behind us. This is jewellery that makes our feelings tangible, material, palpable, shared! What does it mean to be human? What is the value of life if we don’t share our emotions with others? Jewellery is a travelling art, a wonderful way to bring and share art with people.
