Designer: Yoshiko Parise
The main source of inspiration of is Nature … and its Wonders! She likes to link Life (Animals, Insects, Plants …) and the Body, which she wants to dress and embellish with my creations and the Stories they convey.

The jewelry can be described as “precious animal jewelry”. The materials are metals such as silver (or vermeil : silver gilded with gold) and bronze (mostly pure silver-plated or 18-carat gold-plated).
Using these materials Culoyon makes poetic – funny and elegant – creations that make people who wear them even more unique. Every pièces is hand made in France.
