The Silea company might not have appeared if two people had not met – an accountant by profession Stephane Ravel and an artist Monique Védie, who worked in her cozy studio in Paris. Monica Vedie taught Stephane how to make jewelry, since the student turned out to be talented. Subsequently, Stephane already worked alone in his small Paris apartment, naming the brand after his wife – Cilea. Thus, Cilea began operations in 1992. Following the developed technology, Stephane began to create magnificently beautiful volumetric decorations in the form of flowers, insects and fruits.
To create his three-dimensional decorations he used polymer plastic rhodoite (plasticized acetylcellulose): a lightweight but very durable material. Earrings, rings, brooches and necklaces in the form of flowers, fruits, vegetables are cut, shaped and painted by hand. Floral, modern or animal inspiration has been the guiding thread of the company from the very beginning. Despite their size, these decorations are lightweight, and can be easily worn on light blouses and dresses. Produced in small editions, Cilea Jewelry is sold at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Noteworthy, since 1995 the company has got its own symbol – an anemone flower, with endless design and color scheme. In 2012, the company leaves its Paris studio to settle in the Breton lands with a team reduced to one employee. This is how a new page in the company’s history began with a new team, new designers, new collections and ideas.
