Native French Emma Cassi studied Fine Art, drawing and installation at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts. She started making jewellery when she moved to London. Inspired by the fashion collections of Dries Van Noten and her passion for ancient craft, she combines lace and embroidery to create exquisite pieces, often one-of-kind or limited edition.
She hand-stiches intricate jewellery pieces by using reclaimed lace (bobbin lace, crochet, macrame, tatting lace, Chantilly lace, ribbons lace…) and 1880’s jet beads, 1950’s sequins, vintage Swarovski crystals…
Emma has a strong belief that sustainable products should be part of the new fashion philosophy and she wants to show younger generations that, with embroidery, we can make new rituals that will take us beyond reality.
“Embroidery is more than making pretty things. It is our morning yoga, our breathing exercise, our mediation and mantra, the way to create our new paradigm”.
Emma Cassi presents two collection per year Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer.
