Valérie Lachuer Bijoux

Hi! I´m Valérie. I'm a french jeweller. For a long time, I’ve been intensely attracted to the creation of jewelry. I have, however, made various detours. I traveled and lived 10 years in Africa, in Chad, N'Djaména, and Gabon. There I discovered cultures and met wonderful people who deeply influenced me. Following my African decade, I moved to Lisbon, Portugal, where I discovered the world of contemporary jewelry. In Lisbon, I was trained at the Contacto Directo School and following that at the Centro de Joalharia Lisboa. I then opened my own workshop, still in Lisbon, where I presently invent and create my jewelry. I love sterling silver. I like to play with the shades and tones it offers. I also like to marry metals and create sets of contrasts. I invent shapes by manipulating the metal directly. Handcrafting the metal with my hands is for me, an essential prerequisite for the creation of each form. Com and visit my workshop! Valérie
