Signed Fine Art Prints and Original Artwork by Chef and Artist Jacques Pepin.
In 1965, while Jacques Pepin and his future wife Gloria were dating, Jacques and his friend and jeweler, Charles Odeurs, set out to design a brooch in the form of what was known as “The Pepin.” In colloquial French, pepin means umbrella.
More than 50 years later, in 2017, Jacques’ umbrella is once again a piece of fine jewelry. This time it’s a beautiful 18 karat gold with green and blue enamel pendant. The pendant is attached to a 16-inch yellow 14 karat gold cable chain.
Each pendant and necklace is individually handcrafted as ordered and will be part of a limited edition of 100 pieces and each will be engraved with the limited edition number (x/100) on the back of the pendant along with Jacques’ initials signature.
