Interview with Christine Alexandre on Pollen Ring

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
My design is inspired by nature. I'm really fascinated by plant life wich is a true bursting of shapes and textures. Nature is everywhere around us and we sometimes forgot how it's a real part of our lives. It's in this plentiful universe I took my inspiration. Shapes, textures, structures of plant life are rich and fabulous, giving an infinity of possibilities.
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
The aim is to create new shapes the nature would design them with its sensitivity and sensuality to provide a jewel which is unique as well as deeply connected to nature.
What made you design this particular type of work?
As told previously, I'm really fascinated by nature. I just wanted to design something which evokes for me a fragment of it.
Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
Not really. Even if we can probably find other designers with same fascination as mine for nature each one has it's own interpretation of it.
Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
I do not use computer because it's not for me the right way to express my mind. This is nearly a fully handmade process. I use handicraft tools to realize waxes prototype. Castings are done. The wax lost casting is the only "mass" production process as all the finishings are also hand made.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
The personal touch with particular treatment of textures and shapes to bring out organic feeling.
What is the role of technology in this particular design?
Technology didn't take a important part in this design except silver casting.
Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
No data or analytical research. Just focused attention on details all around me in the nature.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
To emphasize the essence of plant life to design a smooth and sensual jewel both discreet and visible to get a timeless piece of Nature.
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
So many things... I'm not a jeweller and I had to learn a lot to achieve this work.
