La ferronnerie d’art, self-evident

Born in Chambéry, Jean-Charles Rodriguez discovered his aptitude for manual work at a very early age. He then pursued his studies in metalwork, during which a particular scene would spark his creativity. While attending the production of a wrought-iron marquise, he was captivated by the technique and poetry emanating from his instructor’s gestures. Won over by this demonstration and henceforth certain that metalwork offers infinite creative freedom, he became an “artistic metalworker”.

Passion, know-how and talent at the service of “top-quality metalwork”

He nurtured his passion and developed his skills alongside “Compagnons du Devoir” metal craftsmen in Savoy and near Geneva, in Upper Savoy, for about ten years, then for five years as workshop manager in a Monaco-based firm. In 2012, with his wife Mélanie, he took over the “Ferronnerie d’Art” in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, founded in 1947. The complementary nature of their skills, their congeniality, attentiveness, and the team’s talent convinced the most demanding clients.

… and exceptional achievements

Today, La Ferronnerie specializes in the creation of exceptional works with a meticulous finish. In constant pursuit of excellence, Jean-Charles and his team master steel, brass and stainless steel to produce artistic embellishments and unique pieces of furniture: railings, marquises, awnings, pergolas, staircases, safety barriers, gates, doors, light fixtures…
The Ferronnerie Jean-Charles Rodriguez works in France and abroad on projects for private clients, professionals such as architecture studios, decorators, luxury hotels, prestigious private and institutional villas; the General Council of the Alpes-Maritimes, the townhalls of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Villefranche-sur-Mer and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat…
