Ms. Thibault Gobeil’s artistic process is defined by excess, joy and freedom. A tireless creator, her round and sinuous pieces are crafted in bright colours and exuberant styles. Her works are tactile and have a distinct materiality about them. Whether bright, soft or rigid, they are born of instinct and evoke candies and splashes.

Her exploration of materials is never left to chance in this fête-à-porter. Her workshop is her playground, an endless test bed where colours burst forth and blend together. Made with synthetic and pigmented materials, Magali’s jewellery creations are shaped through lively, spontaneous gestures. Textural suppleness and brilliance prevail, for an almost psychedelic effect.
