If we needed to pick one emblematic facet of Jean Vendome’s work, maybe the best thing to do would be to contemplate his fascination for gemstones, those « fragments of eternity », as he liked to call them. The DNA of his jewels is found in the poetics of stones, which will be the subject of this encounter with Isabelle Bardiès-Fronty, General Curator of the Museums.
