Glass-roots

14 Jan

I’m not normally one for artisan jewellery – it conjures images of stalls at Christmas fetes selling felt brooches and knitted mobile phone charms. The glass-work jewels on display at this enticing shop in Mojácar owned by glass designer Didier Borgeaud has however, made me rethink this viewpoint.

Originally from France and having whole-heartedly embraced Spain and made it his home, Didier Borgeaud designs and produces pieces of jewellery, tiles and home ornaments from glass with a glint here and there of Swarovski crystals.

The jewellery designs are timeless and elegant with realistic price tags. I’m particularly drawn to the bold gem coloured disk pendants of dented glass on a delicate silver chain (a personal preference over a black or leather chain), I also love the eye catching statuettes triumphantly holding aloft colourful blown glass.

Demonstrating a true passion for all things Español the website also showcases a beautiful collection of fans from various designers, which I share a love for – on a par with my fondness for a bonnet and shawl.

Check out the (only slightly kitsch) video on the website to get a feel for the simple, ageless jewellery designs.

Didier has shops in Mojácar and Nerja near Malaga plus a fully catalogued website.
Thanks to Sr Borgeaud for allowing me to take pics of his work.
