Your pendants are absolutely gorgeous! I like the abstract design, the colors, the presentation, the product photos, everything ! You induce a state of happiness with your jewels.
Tell us something about you personally and professionally.
My name is Cathy Barbaray (Dumauvobleu) and I’m jewel designer since 2009. Before, I was a painter.
I live in a “little house on the prairie” in Normandy, where I find my inspiration.
I love colors, cats, walking near the sea, a cloudy sky…….and so many, many things
I am very fortunate to have discovered exactly how I want to spend my days.
When did you discover that you are a handmade artist?
I’ve always loved working with my hands, from a very young age (not artist yet, but Am I an artist ? 😉
I am constantly creating, drawing, inventing…
How did you start working with polymer clay?
Since I could remember, I always wanted to work with glass but It wasn’t possible for me at this moment of my life.
It’s because I couldn’t play with glass, that I found and fell in love with polymer clay.
I must let you know, that for two years, I had a chance to work with glass rods in my studio.
Your items are full of color, they are so…lovable 🙂 What inspires you in your work?
Every things I see, sunrise, stormy weather, tranquil atmosphere….. my last dream 🙂
I believe that inspiration is everywhere.
Can you describe us in a few words your technique?
I’m often working like a quilted textile artist. Texture and collage are both the way I love playing in a slow process.
Where can we find your work?
