The showroom is located in Tréguier Little town of character in Côtes d’Armor department.

The workshop is right next to the showroom.

We offer exclusive and unique regional creations.

Our activity is exclusively dedicated to work on Mother-of-pearl from french abalones shells so a regional product unlike other Mother-of-pearl artists they use different Mother-of-pearl often from very distant worldwide regions.

Each creation is unique, that’s why we have the happiness to propose exceptional projects.

All our artworks are created from Mother-of-pearl of French abalone.

The shape of each shell is different and making the rarity of Mother-of-pearl.

La Bretagne Terre de Légendes

Ys ( ou Is ) la cité légendaire bretonne engloutie par les flots
Ys l’Atlantide armoricaine

Une prophétie dit que lorsque Paris sera à son tour engloutie par les eaux, Ys ressurgira des profondeurs…

La légende raconte aussi que la ville d’Ys était la plus belle capitale du monde, que Lutèce fut baptisée Paris car « Par Ys » en breton signifie « pareille à Ys » !

et vous… racontez nous une légende sur la cité d’Ys ou la ville de Paris…

Notre Ormeau ou Oreille de Mer vous écoute…

La Nacre

Pour nos créations de travail sur la nacre, notre source principale de coquilles d’ormeaux bretons est la pêche locale & la ferme d’élevage de l’île de Groix : Groix Haliotis

 

Nous sommes créatrices éco-responsables : nous valorisons un produit régional qui est l’ormeau breton par l’utilisation de la nacre de sa coquille qui est le plus souvent non utilisée

 

« Pa vo beuzet Paris,
Ec’h adsavo Ker Is »

« Quand Paris sera engloutie,
Ressurgira la ville d’Ys »
