The use of gems in chandeliers begins in the seventeenth century; mostly of rock crystal, forming beads and pendants, though also turquoise or jade.

These expensive stones were reserved for exceptional pieces; usually small, evoking the preciousness of a jewel suspended from a ceiling. Régis Mathieu preserves this tradition using the rock crystals in a new form, he also chooses to play with this natural material in his contemporary millennium creations: the link between past and modernity gives a timeless nature to his light sculptures. In this new collection; the urchin is the  rst «shinning jewel», with its imposing  nesse and sensitivity it will echo the scale of the Odyssey collection. The citrine and topaz crown of the urchin provide a precious halo containing thousands of pieces in scintillating warm colors. Leaving room for other gems to be  lled in at will, according to the imagination of its future collector …

Jellyfish

The Medusa, an ever recurrent theme since ancient times, inspires today’s designers by its bewitching form. The shapely contours and slender filaments become a pretext for decorative chasing. Like so many sculpted alveoli, the suckers offer refuge to cut rock crystal drops. Here the rich strength of gilt bronze is combined with the subtle transparency of crystal.

Sea Urchin

It is the sea urchin skeleton that inspires Régis Mathieu: the famous spines of the crustacean give way to semi-precious stones that scatter light.
It immerses us once again in a quasi-scienti c universe, a continuation of previous collections that visit the cosmos. This time it is the world under the sea that inspires. The sea urchin’s generous roundness, the lightness of its graphic crown and eeting shadows. New lighting techniques, echo in blooming shades of pink and gold and brown citrine cover the delicately chased sea urchin, dressed in its nery of over seven hundred precious stones, it is undoubtedly a object for a discerning collector.

Coral

Corals, the reef builders, an exhibit of exoskeletons, creating marvelious underwater fauna.  

They capture light and shelter thousands of living beings.  It is only natural that we would want to reinterpret their magnificent forms, their thin leaves, cirripedia imprisoning light; better to bring out our bronze work patina and semi-precious stones.
