Jacques in studio

Jewelry of Chardavogne specializes in hand-crafted fine silver and gold jewelry. The hand-wrought designs are original, beautiful, and wearable.

Every January through March, Jacques Hemsi, at his atelier, creates new designs by working directly with the metals. He then makes his own molds and castings. This allows him to modify designs according to which stones are used as well as the specific requests of his customers.

Jacques Hemsi’s original designs have been well-known at prestigious juried craft fairs since 1976; Jewelry of Chardavogne now presents original, hand-crafted gold and silver jewelry for sale on the web.

Jewelry of Chardavogne was established in 1970 by Jacques Hemsi. He and several other craftspeople pursued their talents with the goal of using daily life and work as a way of inner development. This still remains the source of Jacques’ inspiration. Year after year his business and reputation continue to grow. His gold and silver jewelry is an imaginative blend of filigree, applique, interlocking planes, twisted wire, and an endless variety of other three-dimensional techniques.

Every year Jacques spends January through mid-March working on new designs. His many returning customers can always count on finding their old favorites and also something new.
