Using materials such as buffalo horn, acetate, metal or solid gold, the eyewear maker creates wearable works of art. You have to learn to understand the different materials, because they all react differently, explains Jérôme. During production, he has dedicated himself to the rules of traditional craftsmanship and works everything by hand. Glasses are an accessory that require a great deal of attention to detail. “I try to improve my skills every time by trying out new techniques, working on new materials or creating an unprecedented design. It’s a job where I learn every day,” enthuses the master craftsman. That’s why Jeremy Acoca regularly comes by with his Citan to turn the high-quality eyeglass frames into eyewear.
