After training in applied economics and working for more than ten years in a private company, Françoise Zeegers, who has always had a particular attraction for the plastic arts, decided to reorient her career and take up the challenge of exercising an artistic and artisanal activity. It was after a two-year stay in Paris that she enrolled at the Institut des Arts & Métiers in Brussels, where she took courses in jewellery making, as well as courses in contemporary jewellery. It is there that her passion for metal and the subtle art of jewellery is irrevocably forged.
"A jewel is a work of art, art is a necessity, a need. It is a permanent search which touches us in our feelings and which can only exist through the look of others, but before the look of others, through one's own look on one's work, and therefore on oneself. "
Since the beginning of the exercise of her passion, Françoise has taken part in two competitions (Polyart and Trophées Print'Or in Lyon) where she was awarded 5th place, as well as in many collective exhibitions and various craft markets, particularly in France.
In 2004, Françoise joined the Office des Métiers d'Art du Brabant-Wallon, where she teamed up with Pierre Vanherck, wood turner and creator of prestigious canes, to create a totally new collection of jewellery made of wood and precious metals.
Officially admitted as a designer and manufacturer of jewellery at the Mint in Brussels, she registered her trademark. Her jewels are unique pieces and can be made to measure.CreationsInspiration
