Provence Locket

Introducing the "Provence" Locket


                                                                                                                        • I wanted to create something that was classic and simple enough to be worn as a forever piece and shared with our daughters. Jamie and I decided on creating a symbol of light, the sun. We designed a piece that would never go out of style and which holds our secrets, celebrations, and aspirations, and of course empowers us to be inspired by our stories.”

                                                                                                                           

                                                                                                                          - Monica Rich Kosann

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


                        • Everything I create in Provence is touched by the sunlight. The Cadmium red of papery Poppies, the tan of skin, the bounty of summer fruits. If sunlight had a taste it would be that of a cherry picked warm and ripe off the tree in July. I wake with the first rays of day and I photograph in my studio with the last.

                           

                          To photograph is to paint with light and to live in Provence is to worship the sun. I knew creating a collaboration locket with Monica Rich Kosann needs to be rooted in symbolism not only for the photographic work that brought inspiration in creating this heirloom piece but in that of photography, a passion Monica and I both share. In the history of photography, the first photograph was created in Le Gras, France by Joseph Niépce in 1826. I think about the light that moved through his camera forever changing the course of human history. Now, almost 200 years later, I am using the same light to remind myself of something which seems to have been forgotten in the noise of technology, how spectacular nature is, just as it is given to us and illuminated by the gift of light. I hope this locket catches a little bit of that sunlit magic of France and keeps safe the thing I have dedicated my life to endlessly creating with it- the photographs within.

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.

 

The Art of the Locket

The inspiration behind the project


"My lockets have always been known to hold more than photographs. They hold stories. So it was natural to me that a locket should be a place where the secret inside, to be revealed by a woman at a time and place she chooses, could be any work of artistic wonder and magic. It was from this idea that The Art of the Locket was born. It is an event and a collaboration with a great artist, where the magnificence of their work can not only be on display, but can inspire the creation of a timeless piece of fine jewelry."
