I'm Jacques Djedou from Marseille (FRANCE). I'm a Jewellery Designer, and I have been using blender since version 2.5, around 2009. I make all my animations with only Blender tools, from modeling to VSE, of course with some compositing.
I've worked for more than 10 years in the purpose to launch, one day, a brand name in luxurious jewellery, JAARON.
Today, it's time for production and “wholesale” to luxury jewellery retailers. By the way I have just launched a crowdfunding campaign for my project.
I had an IT consulting role before I decided to develop my artist spirit. Returning to Marseille, I joined the workshop of my father, where my first creations won me recognition as « 2008 Young Designers of the Year» by the Ateliers d'Art de France, the French member of the World Crafts Council.
Because of my IT background, I had a great interest to open source softwares. It's a mine of ressources, thus I want to thank the whole community for their tutorials, addons, and so on..., even if sometimes is to sell (everybody need money for living). A big thanks for all of you, and especially to Ton Roosendaal and his teams.
All the best,
