Born in Montreal, Roland Dubuc discovered jewellery making in 1975 when—after graduating with a Visual Arts degree—he was offered a job as an apprentice jeweller. He quickly became familiar with the profession, which he has been practicing ever since. Roland Dubuc creates all of his jewellery in one piece from a gold or silver leaf. He masters a technique similar to origami which requires great rigour because of its complexity. His challenge is to continuously push the limits of jewellery making further and create sculptural and elegant pieces. Since his first creations, he distinguished himself with his unique and innovative technique and received numerous awards, such as the Prix de la Relève Jean-Cartier (1993) and the Prix Jean-Marie Gauvreau (1998).
