Jacques Hemsi BIo
I’ve been a Craftsman for over fifty years.
Can you imagine!!! That makes me ancient.
I started in 1969, in the streets of NY, then at the second ACC (American Craft Council) in Bennington Vt.
I’ve always been alive to it, I found my aliveness, and maybe even sometimes, my reason d’être.
Every year I made new designs, every year there was a new challenge. Jewelry of Chardavogne became relatively big, I had up to 6 people in my Workshop , I sold to a lot of crafts shops. I actually even started to make a living, not just have a passion. Then started re-consolidated , started doing less shows.
So here I am now.
No shows, because of Covid, but still I have an aliveness to my craft. I’ve made new designs. Here they are for your consideration.
I am trying something new, a new way to reach you, the person who would wear this jewelry.
