Borned in Longueuil, Édéenne is now well established in Paris as a renowned jeweler. Édéenne build her name thanks to her unique talent and ability to immerse herself in her client’s personality to create breathtaking pieces of fine jewelry based on their values and experiences.
For the first time in Canada, more than 150 pieces of fine jewelry of Édéenne collections will be on display at the Wilder Building at the Grands Ballets Canadiens until November 16th. Édéenne exhibit is grandly supported by its clients since half of the fine jewelry pieces have been generously lent by their owners.
Cordially invited at the exhibit opening night on November 1st, we had the opportunity to immerse ourself in this deeply moving environment while discovering each piece’s personal story. The exhibit is organized as a guided tour where you are plunged into darkness and accompanied by a storyteller.
Édéenne is the only Canadian to make fine jewelry in Paris. She has been recognized by the former jewelry director of Christies in Geneva as one of the 4 women who have marked history since 1900, and this, in a universe essentially masculine. Vivienne Becker published in the Financial Times: “Édéenne is one of the 4 gems stars“.
To bring a touch of originality, Édéenne choose to partner with the Bank of Montreal to present the exhibit inside a vault. “I believe in the power of jewelry to witness the depth of the beings and I can not wait to finally reveal my works to the public of my motherland, which, I hope, will be inspired and touched” said Édéenne.
Equipped with a flashlight and accompanied by a storyteller, visitors will discover the underlying story of each piece and live a unique immersive experience far beyond the presentation of the object itself.
“As we celebrate the Bank of Montreal’s 200th anniversary this year, our partnership with Édéenne reflects the values that drive us as a company which are the same that inspire her as an artist: meet the expectations of its clients, recognize the uniqueness of each person, believe in the strength of good ideas” said Claude Gagnon, general manager at Bank of Montreal Financial Group Quebec.
Since its beginning in 2003, Édéenne has influenced the field of jewelry thanks to her singular approach. She dedicated herself to create unique jewelry sculptures for private clients and well known brands. As a cinema lover, she had the opportunity to design collections for films such as Star Wars and for renowned studios such as Walt Disney.
Internationally recognized for her work, Édéenne had the opportunity to feature her collections in several places: twice at the Museum of The Legion of Honor in Paris, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, at Wako in Tokyo and at TEFAF in Maastricht.
