Thierry Vendome learned his skills in jewelry from his father who, in the 1960's and 1970's were at the forefront of design. Thierry learned in the early years from the pioneers of contemporary jewelry and at 16 years old began working with his father. His designs sold well and after the retirement of his parents from the business Thierry began to build his own name opening a workshop and gallery in the oldest quarter of Paris, the Marais. Here he began creating pieces and introduced raw materials into his works which other jewelers were not considering at the time. The designs sold well and Thierry continued to grow the business.
