The Vendome family: Thierry the son

The “Jean Vendome Artist Jeweler” exhibition will give rise to several conferences, including one by his son, Thierry. And who better than Thierry, also a jeweler, to talk about him? All the more so as he also worked with his father for 23 years… “He wanted me to work with minerals but I had to break free! I started working with rusty metals, which was a real trend in the 80s, driftwood, pebbles, shells.” Today, Thierry Vendome is back to minerals and above all to opal, which he loves above all else. “It’s true that my work is close to that of my father: he was and remains my master.”
