Collection: Juliette Mole

Juliette’s life mirrors her eclectic and unique creations:

She has dual French/British nationality and was educated at the Lycée Français in London. After graduating from Oxford University with a B.A Honours in Oriental Languages, driven by her artistic and theatrical talents, she pursued a career in the theatre.

For 20 years Juliette worked as an actress in theatre and television, while also helping to run Instant Garden, a successful garden design company based in London. She then focused on art and creativity and completed a fashion design course at Westminster College after which she spent a year in Brussels at the famous Ecole Superieure de Peinture where she studied the artistic challenges of Trompe L’Oeil.

Juliette spent several years undertaking commissions in public and private establishments in London as well as in New York, Florence, Dublin and Zurich. Her work has featured in many design magazines including Interiors, Sunday Times Style, House and Garden, Country Homes and Interiors as well as the books: London Living and The Design Directory.

In 2008, combining her love of plants and painting, Juliette studied Botanical Painting at the world-renowned English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden in London. In 2009 she went to live in California which is where she embarked on jewellery design which she studied at the Barnsdall Art Centre in Los Angeles. On her return to London, she continued to hone her skills at Flux Studios in Camberwell.

Juliette continues to work as a jewellery designer/maker and artist living and working now in Aberdour.

Juliette's pieces take inspiration from the intriguing textures of organic natural forms and translates them into distinctive sculptural jewellery. Juliette is also a talented artist and the meticulous detail in her botanical artwork is often echoed in the textures of her metalwork.

Her inquisitive mind and creative spirit have lead her on many adventures where the ideas for her collections have originated: from the Pacific coast of California to the rugged Highlands of Scotland.

Juliette designs and makes contemporary jewellery using traditional techniques, such as hammering, fly-pressing, repoussé and chasing as well as etching and the ancient arts of Keum Boo and lost wax. She forms cuffs that wrap seductively around the wrist and the finger, as well as neckpieces and earrings combining chain and leather. Working in sterling silver with occasional gold accents, she often incorporates natural stones, from humble beach pebbles to sparkling gemstones, usually in their raw uncut state.
