I've just discovered the jewellery of Servanne Gaxotte. Surreal, slightly macabre and miniature. They make me feel slightly uneasy which I think stems from them reminding me of those tacky pendants you get in very thin 9ct gold of clowns that they sell in Argos (and places like that) that 60 year old traveller women with dodgy taste wear... However the skill and attention to detail in Gaxotte's pieces means these little figures would be much more at home promenading around the parks and boulevards of Paris than hanging around a trailer park!!
