ALERIE ELSA VANIER - France

G

ALERIE ELSA VANIER, created in 2003, moved in 2016 to the lovely Rue de l’Odéon in the 6th Arrondissement of Paris. It showcases contemporary jewelry designers whose unique talent gives pride of place to rare, precious or fascinating materials. When Elsa was a student, she was walking past the window of the jeweler Jean Vendome, and she was enchanted by a necklace. Alongside a career in finance, she explored the world of contemporary designers. She began to meet them and took classes in gemology. “I wanted to understand their world better, while wondering how to promote them,” she says. “The result was this gallery now celebrating its

15th anniversary.” The designers of the gallery are selected for the emotional charge in their works, their originality, creativity and quality of workmanship. Some of their jewelry artists submit a fascinating response to the question regarding the role of jewelry, its relationship to the body, its psychological impact or what it says of the wearer. The gallery is an “openhouse” where the visitor can freely choose a piece of jewelry from the collections of designers from around the world and meet the artists at exhibition openings. Every year, the Gallery organizes 3 to 4 exhibitions focused on the work of one designer or theme-based, to showcase the works of several artists. 382
