Throughout the duration of our current exhibition “Holy Tools!“, the blog of LA Joaillerie invites you to discover the artists participating in the exhibition.

After her training in traditional techniques of jewellery at the Vakschool of Schoonhoven, she studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (1993-1997). Today she lives and works in Amsterdam. – If you were a tool ? I actually consider instruments, tools and machines etc. to be extensions from us. And you can reverse that : I also consider the human body to be an instrument/machine/tool, so I am a tool ! – What is your first or most significant memory related to tools ? Not so much to tools, but when I was 15, I had to wear a back-brace for one year, because of Scoliosis : I have a small deformation in my spine. Once, a friend noticed that this was maybe where my fascination started. – Why did you choose working with your hands and what does it provide you ? It chose me in a way […]
Throughout the duration of our current exhibition “Holy Tools!“, the blog of LA Joaillerie invites you to discover the artists participating in the exhibition. Through a tool-Portrait, discover their considerations on tools, their views on crafts and handmaking. Lisa and Scott Cylinder first met while they were students in jewellery and goldsmithing at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Since 1988, they have been successfully co-directing their art jewellery studio while pursuing a teaching career. They live and work in Oley, Pennsylvania. – If you were a tool? We would be a pencil. The pencil represents everything important to us and about us. Hard and soft, additive and reductive, colorful yet capable of only writing in blacks and greys. It also represents an archaic, outmoded (by technology) tool that is still incredibly relevant to us today as makers, both as a way to put ideas on paper and as a material to incorporate in our works. – If you were a gesture? We suppose it would be a rumination, akin to Rodin’s «The Thinker.» Our works, at first glance, are layered with materials and design. It is upon a second glance or further study that a much […]

Throughout the duration of exhibition “Sacrés Outils! “, the blog of LA Joaillerie invites you to discover the artists participating in the exhibition. Through a tool-Portrait, discover their considerations on tools, their views on crafts and handmaking. Juanjo Garcia Martin is a Spanish art jeweller. He lives and works in Malaga. His artistic approach combines different disciplines that he has been practicing indinstinctely since an early age: painting, music and art jewellery. – If you were a tool ? I think if I were a tool, I would be a hammer, with the aesthetic of the video the Wall, by Pink Floyd! – If you were a gesture ? I would be a look. – What is your first or most significant memory related to tools ? A small box of wood that my father had built with a fruit box, and I remember that it used to be full of screws, nails, nuts, washers, tape, etc. All that was left to go in the drawer of surprises. – What is your favorite tool and why ? The hacksaw, for its simplicity and everything you can get with it. – Why did you choose working with our hands (and […]
Only a few weeks left before the launch of the 2017 edition of Paris Design Week ! We are pleased to announce that LA Joaillerie by Mazlo will organize on this occasion an exceptional group show, in partnership with the Arketip association. Entitled “Sacrés Outils!”, this exhibition is particularly important to us. Indeed, it highlights the absolute necessity to rethink our relationship to objects and especially to manual tools. It also proves that preserving know-how is not incompatible with the use of technologies, provided that these advances do not affect the essential: creativity and human well-being. In these times of generalized burn-out, would happiness be “at the bench”? We would like to thank all our guests : Lisa & Scott Cylinder, Guillaume Delaperriere, Juanjo Garcia Martin, Xavier Moncluis, Jo Pond, Katja Prins, Quars d’una (Sandra Lluisa, Clara Niùbo , Carla Garcia Durlan, Maria Diez Serrat), Fabrizio Tridenti, Gabi Veit. Find all the relevant information about our guests by consulting their dedicated profile page on this site. And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily updates! Exhibition from 8 to 30 September 2017. Opening on September 7th, 7-9 pm.
You are about to succumb to the trend of coloured gold alloys? You have questions about the pros and cons of the red gold and rose gold? Here is a new infographic that we conceived as a short introduction to a longer and more detailed article which you can read here
The time has come for you to choose or to order the bespoke jewel of your life. Full of enthusiasm, you embark on this adventure without even suspecting what awaits you. At this stage indeed, you have to MAKE CHOICES. Apparently there is nothing here to make a drama out of, except that for most of us, making a choice is mostly “giving up” a multitude of possibilities … Therefore deciding the color of a stone can be quite tricky. To help you make these choices, we invite you to check regularly our website for substantial information concerning the colours, stones, metals, know-how and practices that contribute to the creation of a jewel. To begin this series, as March is coming, we have designed an infographic on the king of colours: RED! We hope you will enjoy it! See you soon!
ere’s a small preview of our upcoming blog posts related to Red (pretty obvious, isn’t it…?). The best is yet to come, stay tuned! #lajoaillerieseesred #more to come very soon! #mazlo #jewelry #art #authentic #authorjewellery #love #passion #inferno #fire #danger #seduction #energy #galerielajoaillerieparmazlo #paris Une vidéo publiée par La Joaillerie Par Mazlo (@la_joaillerie) le 20 Févr. 2016 à 8h49 PST
LA JOAILLERIE is kind of an outsider in the landscape of parisian High Jewellery. This place is indeed neither a gallery nor a shop dedicated to a brand. It is primarily indeed a dream come true for Mazlo, this unconventional author-jeweller, whose family tradition did not at all predestine to exhibit one day his own creations in a place devoted to his philosophy of art. The reason is that in the Mazloum family, jewels cannot be regarded as anything but unique and entirely handmade pieces… ssisted by a personality test, which according to the legend, was developed by the founder of the dynasty, Georgius Sayegh el-Mazloum, the master jewellers of the family successively got the reputation to know how to identify the essence of a personality before making it a portrait through the precious form of a jewel. Yet, as formative as may be the challenge of commissioned work, it could nothing but fail to exhaust the creative fever of an atypical artist like Robert Mazlo. First initiated in the fine art of Phoenician jewellery in the family workshop led by his father in Beirut, he then achieved his studies in the Mecca of the time in the realm of « classical » jewelry-making, the Istituto Benvenuto Cellini in Valenza-Pô, Northern Italy. Paradoxically, he shall go out of this tradition’s temple, graduated with […]
