Didier Ltd is unique in specialising in jewellery made and designed by painters, sculptors, architects and designers from the second half of the 20th century. These artists are all recognised internationally for their art, but their jewellery is less well known or recorded. These jewels are very intimate and personal expressions of their art and may be regarded as wearable sculptures. The jewels were made as gifts for family and friends, especially by sculptors who are generally more adept in working their ideas out on a smaller scale, while for others it was a conscious exercise to create designs in miniature. Painters and print-makers are more likely to need the help of a facilitator to turn their designs into three-dimensional jewels, and the resulting pieces are more usually produced in small limited editions.
The gallery is currently open by appointment,

Didier Ltd is proud to have been selected as the jewellery gallery for
"Meet the Experts Live"
presented by GemX.
For Discover Wearable Art with Didier Ltd, Didier and Martine will be in conversation with Lin Jamison from GemX discussing artists' jewellery in general, while also focusing on the three jewels that form Didier Ltd's presentation at TEFAF Online. These jewels were designed by three modern masters: Arnaldo Pomodoro, Lucio Fontana, and Claude Lalanne. Furthermore, they were all produced by the great facilitator and editor of artists' jewels, GianCarlo Montebello.
For further details and to join this presentation over Zoom please follow the links here to either the TEFAF or GemX websites.
The talk is open to everyone and is free to join.
There will be time for questions at the end,
so please log on, listen, and participate.
