Interview by GotU May 5th 2015 – Bangkok
Two meetings which took place on April 25th and April 29th
Thierry Martino’s wish was to meet clients and fans of the Harley – Davidson® brand and share his passion. The appearances of the creator being rare, it became the opportunity to create the event.
Thus the idea of his brother Laurent Martino of a contest (1) with the Harley Davidson® dealers of France of which two had won : S – ONE of Ballainvilliers (91) and Spirit of Eagle of Seynod near Annecy (74). The object was to create a festive meeting in the concessions around his coming and to introduce in the form of a mini conference the manufacturing process for this high range jewellery.
-“People view our jewelry differently when they discover how the factory operates. They can’t imagine the work, the number of participants and the complexity of the process.” Thierry Martino
The presentation included the sequential process, from the initial drawing all the way through quality control and packaging, illustrated by many objects taken from the production line: tree cast, mould, waxes…
– “People view our jewelry differently when they discover how the factory operates. They can’t imagine the work, the number of participants and the complexity of the process.”
This meeting of the creator with his audience was the opportunity to gather the testimony and thanks. People who are themselves in jewelry. Some who had never imagined to wear short jewellery and that have become followers. Others who have said how much they had enjoyed discovering this brand that deals with respect the themes which are important to them.
“I have often heard that our jewelry had a soul, and many thanks because nothing comparable existed before. It is true that it is both delicate and R & R, thus chic and wearable by all.” Thierry Martino
The opportunity also to meet the true fans and collectors of the brand, sometimes unexpected and conventional people who have found a part of themselves in the beauty of these creations. For the anecdote, one of the clients of the concession had even painted his tank with the motif of a ring. A warm experience to renew, in the opinion of all!
