Christine Charles-Ventoux is a Sheffield based Decorative Arts university graduate creator of the independent ethical and sustainable jewellery brand Cyprien Jewellery.
Cyprien Jewellery was created with one goal in mind: providing high-quality, contemporary classic, sustainable jewellery and gifts. The passion for excellence has driven Christine from the beginning, and continues to drive us into the future.
The brand is independent and creates jewellery and gifts individually to represent you and the person that you are.
Cyprien Jewellery is ethically handmade using eco-friendly methods and recycled materials. Beauty with ethics is how Christine works.
Christine creates jewellery that is timeless, feminine, organic, contemporary heirlooms inspired by human connections, commitment and life including the people we love and can be worn every day of the year. Each piece is represented in the form of handmade body adornment created from traceable recycled Silver and Gold.
Some of the items are clean lines but she also loves to add to the narrative of her work by including surface textures and intricate forms such as medieval technique filigree. She started creating filigree jewellery during her degree and had an instant connection with this feminine and dainty jewellery artform. Her connection with this technique is a celebration of what came before us, but which is still relevant today.
She has incorporated new ways of working in an ethical and sustainable way throughout her jewellery making processes. The business uses non-toxic substances, minimises the use of electricity and water in the jewellery making process and incorporates repurposed tools that are purchased during her travels to France prior to the pandemic. This commitment is also demonstrated in her packaging which incorporates ribbon produced from repurposed plastic bottles and elegant recyclable gift boxes.
She actively supports the ethos of buy less choose well slow jewellery and slow fashion because her work is about having a gentle touch on the planet and taking the time to fully understand the impact of creating jewellery and how to implement new ways of being ethical and sustainable. She inspires her customers to consider all the information so that they can make fully informed decisions when they purchase goods.
