Hermès: An Homage to Craftsmanship

I was so glad to happen upon the site Les Mains D'Hermès when my talented friend, jewelry designer,  Lizzie Mandler posted it on Facebook. 

Frédéric Laffont and Isabelle Dupuy-Chavanat have realized a documentary film in true Hermès fashion chronicling the contributions of the many artists, artisans and craftspeople who create their timeless masterpieces by hand.

I love that someone has taken the time to acknowledge the method, honor the skill and give voice to the silent hands that add continue to bring craft and beauty to our world.

And here are some images of Lizzie's work...

 I'm happy to say that I'm the proud owner of a Lizzie Mandler original necklace.
