Elise Dray’s world is a daring one, illuminated by the magical sparkle of diamonds.
Having been initiated to French savoir-faire by taking courses in fine jewelry and gold smith’s trade at the BJOP School of The Louvre in Paris, Elise decided to express her talent and created her jewelry collection in 2009. The perfect chemistry between her positive energy, her artistic instinct and her mastery of traditional techniques asserts her very personal interpretation of new wave fine jewelry without concession.
Elise imagines a dream and fantastic world full of people with gems and objects to be desired. She loves to sculpt and pave gold with a multitude of precious stones, intensely bright, electrified cabochons dexterously mixing them with wood, onyx, diamonds, turquoise and rubies. Her reputation is growing. Her bohemian mood and her non- conformist approach, provoke a neo-rock romantic shock. Her strong evocative and mythical power impregnates her jewelry, skin ornaments and body decors.
Under the influence of the animal world, Elise wraps animal creatures around fingers and imagines all sorts of precious Dragons, articulated rings, ear jewelry. The Antique Lion becomes a wristband. The magnificent Golden Eagle becomes the signature of Elise, in various versions. Snakes, all articulated, are dear to her and miniature Cobras are graphic colored rings, her famous Satine rings become Siamese and two-toned. A poetic scent and freshness emanate from her truly delicate creations, a nod to naturalism.
The hippie years, Cross, Rose, Fleur de Lys, linked in inseparable duos, are chained by a gold thread. And such precious charms, Feather, Fleur de Lys, Mini Cobra, hanging from lovely rings, dance and jingle, suspended from earlobes. Hoop earrings, more hoops, with blooming lily of the valley. Elise, inspired, has created a whole new line for men. Very finely chiseled gold tiepins, Fleur de Lys, Snakes, Studs. Wooden rosaries and gallant Crosses. Treasures that all women would like to have. Very near the legendary Place Vendome, Elise Dray unveils her neo romantic display at 7 rue de la Paix. A muted boudoir where Mediterranean influences with an ultra-glam Parisian spin are an ode to femininity.
