FABRICE SCHAEFER | Playing with Fire

A collection of titanium jewellery, a metal that is malleable when heated and exhibits color variations in the presence of flames. Titanium, simultaneously noble, hard, and crystalline, harmoniously blends with the contrasting brilliance of diamonds. These two demanding materials allow me to explore infinite possibilities, including the ability to play with fire.
