The first Bijorcha Jewelry Awards in Paris

February 18, 2019

In 2018, Wacom was a partner of the first BIJORHCA JEWELRY AWARD competition, which aims to reward the most creative and innovative achievement and enhance the profession of craftsman jeweler on a given theme: the birds from Metropolitan France!
The winners of the competition were rewarded during the Party Bijorhca Paris in January, 2019.

Congratulations to Camille DIOGO who won the first prize for her superb creation “L’Éclat d’Eau”

The Kingfisher, with its fast flight at the level of rivers, dives in a dive and comes to break the calm of the water.
It’s at this moment that the fairy tale operates: its shimmering plumage captures the light and is reflected in the agitation of the water. The kingfisher was nicknamed the flying jewel because of its bright blue-green wings, contrasting with the red plumage of its chest.

Congratulations to Héloise De Leeuw who finished 2nd in this competition with her necklace “Amour Glacé”

This necklace “Amour Glacé” symbolizes a couple of kingfishers, coming out of the water. Two orange and turquoise silhouettes twirling around each other, in an air pursuit to soon find each other. These two flying gems take with them a series of drops of water, in a frosty and wintery universe. This piece, symbolizing love, represents the kingfisher in all his splendor: love, speed, flight, life. This necklace could be summarized by the following sentence: “Live of love and fresh water”

Congratulations to M. Pierre-Aymeric Ledoux who won the 3rd place thanks to his ring “Pic Mar”

“The decline of this species in France, caused by the gradual disappearance of old oaks, prompted me to choose this bird.” Fixed on a ring body that protects it, this movable pick reproduces its characteristic behavior thanks to a spring system. His pecking on your finger then becomes a reminder of the risk of his disappearance.
