A few words from the designer
My name is Emilie and I have always loved creating, imagining and making objects with my hands.
In 2021, I started a new adventure that was particularly close to my heart. I decided to create my own line of jewelry. I have been trained by a renowned craftsman from my region who transmitted to me her know-how and her passion for the technique of Fusing – the fusion of glass, a technique used by glass artists and dating back 3,500 years.
Each fused glass piece of jewelry I create is unique and each piece of jewelry (rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets) has on a different light and glow depending on the natural light and the movements of the body that somehow bring the piece of jewelry to life.
The Sélestine brand was born in November 2021 and a first store opened in the center of the village of La Garde-Adhémar in Drôme Provençale (France) at 260 Rue Marquis de la Baume.
The brand philosophy
Sélestine’s creations are unique and come to life in our workshop in the heart of Drôme Provençale (France). I attach great importance using high quality materials and working with local structures.
Here the glass heats up and our brains too! Our collection and our imagination are constantly boiling and evolve according to the times, the desires and the suggestions of our customers.
The Fusing technique
Fusing or fused glass consists of cutting pieces of glass and assembling them with other elements. Baking in an oven at over 800 degrees for long hours fuses the glasses together.
By modifying the firing curves, we can vary the final rendering, the shape, the appearance and the shine of the glass, which makes each model unique, different and singular.
