About Chloe Romanos - Artist Statement

I am a French jewellery designer and maker. I started learning and making jewellery when I moved to England. My initial training in archaeology and my fascination for art and crafts has inspired me to learn about transforming metals and combining different materials to create little poetic keepsakes.

I create statement jewellery that stands out on the body. I imagine and design pieces that are like small pieces of wearable art.

Each creation has a story behind it, from the winged creations inspired by French Art Nouveau to the textured effects I love to use, that are a reminiscence of the worn aspect of archaeological treasures dug up from the ground. I also like to let my imagination be guided by memories of inspiring places I have visited, quotes from books and poems I have read, or by the material itself.

The elegance of Art Nouveau designs, with its strong curved lines and obsession for myriad of wings, is what inspires my ‘Fly Away' Collection, presented here. I like to play with the space in between, with shadows and with the way the piece can envelop the body and become part of it.

I use traditional silversmithing techniques to create contemporary statement rings, necklaces and earrings. Cloelea Jewellery pieces are sustainably produced using recycled precious metals and a variety of precious and semi-precious stones (amongst my favourites: labradorite, opal, moonstone, amethyst, garnet).

I am originally from the south of France, now living in Oxfordshire. I have studied jewellery making and silversmithing at the Jewellery School in Birmingham. I also hold a Master in Art History and Archaeology from Sorbonne University in Paris and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Birmingham.

My work has been showcased in exhibitions including the British Museum and the Royal Cornwall Museum. Each year, I take part in Oxfordshire Artweeks Festival. I am also a member of the Guild of Jewellery Designers, of West OX Arts and of Faringdon Art Society.
