"A tire d'E.L" is a play on words around the French expression "à tire d'aile" which means, for a bird, to quickly take flight. Here, the wings have been replaced by the letters E.L, a nod to Electron Libre which was my first fashion jewellery brand and which enables me to create this second one today !
A tire d'E.L is a fashion jewellery brand resolutely creative. Each piece is handmade in my workshop, here, in The Hague, Netherlands. The creation of a jewel is a moment of intense emotion: the choice of the materials, the colours, the rhythms, the testing, the shaping.... all these steps to finally get to this wonderful moment when the jewel finally tells its story and takes flight.
I am a fan of Bénédicte's workshops, which allow us to create our own jewellery and to wear it with pride, thanks to her knowledge and teaching methods. Whether it is the making of a bracelet, a necklace or earrings, we learn different techniques in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere.I also discovered her own creations, all made with great care. I fell in love with the Arizona collection that I love to wear on my outfits.Let yourself be tempted by a workshop and meet Bénédicte and her innovative ideas for costume jewellery.
To participate in a costume jewellery workshop with A Tire d'E.L. is to enter another world. Leave your stress and your daily life behind and welcome to Benedicte and her myriad of colours, shapes and materials. As a true professional she will explain to you, step by step, with patience and relevance, the different techniques to create necklaces, bracelets and magnificent earrings in your colours.The particularity of this workshop is its host and the friendly and soft atmosphere she knows how to create. Beads as well as links are woven here.
I loved my upcycling and jewellery repair workshop at Atiredel. Mismatched earrings, unworn or broken jewellery, I left with "new" jewellery that I enjoy wearing. Benedicte followed my wishes when I had them and made suggestions when I lacked inspiration. You also leave with a fresh look and new ideas for creation. The principle of not throwing away and transforming pleases me and speaks to me. The atmosphere is soft and joyful, just like Bénédicte.
I am a French living in the Netherlands since 2019. It’s here, by the sea fresh air that my vocation really grew on me. Embrace my imagination through my collections of fashion jewellery, dream as much as I dream on a colour, a stone, a shape. I already created my first fashion jewellery brand "l'Electron Libre" 17 years ago. Self-taught, I also trained in traditional jewellery techniques. Today," A Tire d'E.L" is not only a collection of jewellery in very small series but also Workshops, where I share with you techniques that will also enable you to discover the delights of creation.
