Sculptural shapes

  • • Siegfried sees jewellery as sculptures for the body
  • • He aspires to create emotionally charged objects
  • • He combines noble and non-precious materials

At the age of 14 years old, contemporary jewellery designer and silversmith Siegfried De Buck started his trajectory at the Ecole des Métiers d’Arts in the Abbey of Maredsous. Afterwards he perfected his studies at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. When he launched his own studio in 1971, the movement to redefine jewellery had just started. The idea of a piece of jewellery being a sculpture for the body, as a result of the artistic process, immediately resonated with him. Although this journey hasn’t always been the easiest one – the jewellery pieces were even called torture devices at one point, almost 50 years later the uomo universale is still passionate. He has taught his craft for 25 years and his pieces are part of museum collections around the world.
