In a bold move to enhance the prestige of its cut crystal accessory collections, Cristal&Bronze embraced a pioneering decision. Entrusting their renowned crystal signature to the skilled hands of Franck Benito, a highly acclaimed artisan, they sought to reimagine their classic ranges. Franck Benito's task was to introduce two contemporary crystal cuts that would become synonymous with his name: the mesmerizing "Nid d'abeilles" (Honeycomb) and the elegant "Bambou" (Bamboo) cuts.
Within the confines of Franck Benito's workshop, a remarkable metamorphosis occurs. Intricate patterns are meticulously transcribed onto the crystal surface using either a precise felt pen or a delicate brush. Employing traditional sandstone or cork millstones, the crystal is then carved with meticulous precision. This one-of-a-kind cutting technique, aptly known as "freehand," allows for the creation of captivating visual effects, playing with light, reflections, and an enchanting sense of transparency.
