Did America Kick You Out?: Aurélie Guillaume
In the 15th episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown sits down with French Canadian jeweler, enamelist, and illustrator Aurélie Guillaume. The two jewelers are currently in Munich, Germany for Munich Jewellery Week and recorded this interview in the JV Collective's exhibition space during gallery hours while visitors looked on. The two women discuss the complications of international artist residencies, how many hours it takes to make a piece, and Sarah finally learns how to pronounce Aurélie correctly!
