Roland Dubuc

Born in Montreal, Roland Dubuc discovered jewelry in 1975 when, after graduating from a Fine Arts degree, he was offered a job as an apprentice jeweler. He quickly became familiar with this profession which he has been practicing ever since. Dubuc creates all of his jewelry from one piece from a gold or a silver leaf. Since his first creations, he distinguished himself by his unique and innovative technique and received numerous awards such as the Prix de la Relève Jean-Cartier and the Prix Jean-Marie Gauvreau. In his art as a jeweler, he masters a technique that is similar to origami and which requires great rigour because of its complexity. His challenge is to continuously push the limits of jewelry-making further by creating sculptural and elegant pieces.
