handcrafted gold and silver jewelry by jacques hemsi

Jacques Hemsi Biography

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. Jewelry of Chardavogne can be seen at selective area craft shows.


Jacques is an official Sugarloaf Crafts Festival exhibitor.
