Gemma Ridameya & Cadaqués









Què tal la Setmana Santa? Nosaltres hem estat de mini-vacances uns dies a Cadaqués, gaudint de tranquilitat i mar. I en un poble tan bonic, de casetes blaques, barques i platges plenes de pedres, hi vam trobar la Gemma Ridameya, una joiera que té una botiga-taller molt bonica just al mig del poble. Jo fa un any que passejo amunt i avall un anell seu amb una pedra de la platja i m’encanta! No us perdeu la seva nova web i no dubteu en fer-li una visita si aneu per allà. Gemma, una abraçada des de 18kt!

How were your Easter Holidays? We had been in Cadaqués, enjoying tranquility and sea side. In this small village, of white houses, boats and beautiful beaches, we found Gemma Ridameya, a lovely jeweler which has her own workshop-store there. Since one year ago I own one of her pebble beach rings and I really love it! You can’t miss her new website and if you go to Cadaqués you must visit her. Gemma, hugs from 18kt!

Marianne Gassier from Bijou Contemporain is organizing an exhibition based on PEBBLE JEWELS !

DATES : from DECEMBER 1st to 12


Because ALL Collioure’s beaches, here, in the south-west of France, where Pyreneans “dive” into the Mediterranean sea, are ONLY with pebbles, and that the FIRST REACTION of TOURISTS (ALL TOURISTS !) is to throw pebbles in the sea !!!
SO, the Collioure’s jeweller, Vincent TORGUET had the idea to create a line of jewels with these Collioure’s pebbles …. And Marianne thought it would be fine that all jewellers bring their “pebble” to the “edifice” !!!!
The first reference … of course, is … the ROLLING STONES !! 🙂 Make all your pebbles ROLLING towards Collioure !

SO, EVERYBODY, make your stone ROLLING from your river, beach, countryside, city, to COLLIOURE ! all “stones” are welcomed !! :-))


RECEPTION DATES for JEWELS :  between NOV 25 to NOV 29

PLACE of EXHIBITION : CENTER of COLLIOURE, the old City Hall building.

Aquesta artista no només fa joies sinó que treballa l’esmalt al foc d’una manera sublim!! No puc descriure amb paraules les seves peces, són increïbles!

“My work expresses my love for the infinite variety found in the natural world. One source of inspiration is my garden, both the plant forms and the creatures which inhabit it. I try to capture the graceful forms and rich colors which I observe there. Recently, I spent a year living by the sea in Ireland. Long walks on the beach, peering into tidal pools, sparked my current series of marine life.”
