Annabelle Degroote, Jewellery Designer

 
   

Background
Originally from Lille, Annabelle Degroote has benefitted from her professional experience as a beautician and has also worked in the perfumery business and with plants.

Life took her to the Arriège where she opened her own art gallery, then following her instinct and her heart she moved to the Dordogne. Today she works in winemaking and so it's only natural that the artist in her has set up a dialogue with the vine.

 
    

Activity
What Annabelle Degroote offers us is pure enchantment.... We already know of the generosity of the vine and that the wines of the Périgord charm us, but how could we imagine that this magical artist would understand the vine so well as to create these fine adornments? Taking delicate vine tendrils and whipping up a storm she creates necklaces, pendant ear-rings, brooches. « Caprice de Vigne » gives us innovative pieces in which the vines attach themselves to fine quality materials: semi-precious stones, amber and gold and silver leaf.

 
   

Philosophy
Annabelle Degroote has managed a harmonious marriage of vegetable and mineral elements; she has tamed the vine and with her delicate, colourful pieces created something to delight women.
Connecting with nature and extending the beauty offered to us in our local vineyards is the success of her latest collection « Caprice de Vigne ».
