Nadège Renée Cassar
Nadège Renée Exclusive Jewellery
Setting up a small jeweller’s workshop back in 2005, I kicked off my jewellery designer/maker venture under the name Nadège.Renée. I design and produce contemporary jewellery using sterling silver as the core metal (gold on request), and combine this with various precious or non-precious materials. Uniqueness is the underlying concept of Nadège.Renée jewellery and I design and produce my own lines of exclusive or limited edition pieces. I also enjoy creating bespoke jewellery by recycling my clients’ precious metals and stones.
I have a flair for designing transformable jewellery - pieces that can be altered or taken apart or adapted to suit different needs, tastes and styles. I also aim to highlight the importance of updating and reviving traditional jewellery techniques such as filigree, with a contemporary approach to design and application.
In 2010, I received my B.A (Hons) in 3D Design and Interior Design (specialising in jewellery), from the MCAST Institute of Art and Design. In this year I was also awarded the WIPO Award for Creativity and Innovation for my transformable neckpiece, ‘Boomerang’, whilst in 2012 I was awarded the Premju Gieh l-Artigjanat Malti prize for another transformable piece, ‘The Lotus Flower Set’.
