In her latest collection, Melanie Georgacopoulos pulls off a new feat: padded mother-of-pearl, sculpted as if a button had been pushed into a cushion. “Only the tenderness of this material, often seen as a disadvantage, made this work possible. I had fun associating it with diamond, the hardest stone.” Over the last decade, Mélanie Georgacopoulos has masterfully taken mother-of-pearl, her favorite material, out of the classical register thanks to spectacular pieces and new techniques.
