The idea for the new Hope jewel came to me after reading Emily Dickinson's poem "Hope is the thing with feathers" where "hope" is metaphorically transformed into a strong-willed bird that lives in the heart of the human soul, singing its song no matter what and trying to remind us of the power of hope in the face of adversity.
Strongly moved by these verses that took on a particular meaning in the difficult context we all have been through, I developed the creation of a polymorphic jewel in gold, set with an Akoya pearl that we feel close to us, like an amulet, reassuring, discreet and joyful, to be worn as a pendant, earrings or brooch.
"Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops - at all
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm
I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
