Poppy Necklace

The Art of the Charm

Featuring Jamie Beck

 

The "Provence" Poppy Necklace


    • "My eyes had never seen anything like it before, a landscape painted in swaths of crimson red! It was my first spring in Provence, I parked my bike under a tree and made my picnic here, in the middle of a field of poppies in silent awe."

The Collaboration


    • "Jamie Beck and I met many years ago and immediately bonded over our mutual love of photography. We also shared a love of anything vintage that embodied the stories of lives well lived. It was not long before the two of us realized that we were both hopeless romantics.

    •  
    • I immediately fell in love with her work, and Jaime showed an equal passion for my jewelry. After, moving to France, Jamie would talk to me about how the light was so magical, and of course so important to her photography. I knew well that light is everything in the creative process.

    •  
    • To me, Jamie is a friend, a fellow artist, and an inspiration."

A Statement from Jamie


                        • There is something magical to poppies, how they can grow between the cracks of stonewalls and up ancient cobblestone streets. If you pick one, in a moment, it falls apart. How delicate they are and yet stand strong against the spring winds and rain. A fiery battle that ultimately, when won, delivers us to the warmth of summer days. When life hands me challenges I don’t feel strong enough to face, I tell myself to “be the poppy,” if they can survive the day with their papery delicateness, I can too.

                           

                          It is now my favorite time of year here in the South of France, when the poppies come and awaken the landscape from its wintery rest. I go out with my camera and find them in the fields dancing in the wind and, swaying together, make my photographs–sometimes in the landscape, and sometimes I bring the landscape back and into my studio. I’m always learning which each passing year just how to truly capture the beauty of a poppy. 

                           

                          The poppies, red like a beating heart, symbolize more than remembrance. For me, they are Provence and Provence is love. I couldn’t think of a better charm to hang around my neck than that which colors the world in swatches of love. Until the next spring arrives, I will wear the poppy and remember all that there is to look forward to.

About Jamie Beck


Jamie Beck is a photographer, visual artist, and story teller.

 

Jamie’s original Tumblr blog , From Me To You, launched in 2009 and quickly grew to over 400,000 followers. Soon after, she and her creative partner Kevin Burg pioneered a new form of photography called Cinemagraphs, a living photograph combining an image and video .

 

In 2012, she opened Ann Street Studio in downtown Manhattan, through which she produced campaigns for companies like Google, Netflix, Disney and Monica Rich Kosann, and was featured in Adweek Magazine’s “Creative 100” of the industry’s top Visual Artists. Jamie is an “original influencer” being one of the first to use her blog and social channels to create a landscape of storytelling.

 

In 2016, Jamie took what was to be a one year sabbatical to create a personal body of work in the South of France. The experience of living in Provence changed her vision for

life and creativity. Three years later, she built a photographic studio in the heart of the Luberon working exclusively with natural light and foraged subject matter. Her body of work focuses on the beauty of nature, seasons and the organic imperfections of life.
