Mid Week Modness: Jean-Claude Darveau Necklace

I’ve written before about the great Canadian Modernist jewellery designers such as Robert Larin, de Passillé-Sylvestre, Guy (or Giles) Vidal and Rafael Alfandary.

There’s one designer I haven’t written about before, although his work certainly stands on par with the aforementioned giants of Canadian design. Montrealer Jean-Claude Darveau started out as a self-taught designer working with pewter in 1956. In 1971, he went to work for Vidal, before setting out his own shingle in 1978. I’m not certain, but I think he may still be in business.
