Fleur de carotte provides playful and poetic jewellery & ceramics handmade in my Brighton studio.
Fleur de Carotte is a young brand of jewellery and ceramics born in 2015, for people who appreciate craftsmanship and products slowly handmade with soul.
The brand celebrates femininity and quirkiness, with a poetic touch. It is made for women who enjoy beauty in the details of everyday life, the natural world and art.
The inspiration behind it is the wildlife, the elegance of Art Deco lines, the madness of Memphis, everyday life scenes, existing and imaginary creatures, art, literature and my own imagination.
All of my jewellery and ceramics are slowly handmade with a lot of care and after my own sketches. I source most of my material, including my tools, from suppliers in Brighton and the UK and my packaging is 100% recycled.
ABOUT THE MAKER
I am Amandine, a frenchie living by the sea in Brighton, UK. I am passionate about art, craft and making things. I set up my Etsy shop in February 2015 but have been making leather jewellery & accessories as gifts for friends since 2011. I sew, weave, embroider, screenprint, make jewellery, ceramics and pottery. I am always eager to explore new mediums and I find that working in many techniques is very fulfilling and they all feed in with each other.
I love the sunshine, dancing salsa, art, literature, fashion and design of the 1920s and 1960s, colours, nature, Spain and Latin America, red wine and dark chocolate.
I am inspired by colour combinations I see on the streets of Brighton or in Spain, the Modernist era, Art Deco design, the beauty of nature and whimsical scenes from my imagination. The artists I love and who inspire me the most are Picasso, Matisse, Cocteau, Garcia Lorca, Chagall as well as the Bloomsbury Group. You can see all these influences in my work.
