The jeweller of light

  • • Sandrine took over the workshop in 2017
  • • The workshop restores, cleans and repairs historical chandeliers
  • • András has been in business since 1934

“The first time I walked into the András workshop,” explains Sandrine Gluza, “it was as if time had stood still: I immediately felt a fascination for the job, the machines, the tools, the techniques. I started working there the day after my first visit.” Before working at András, Sandrine was a manager in an LED lighting company. Her knowledge of electricity and lighting was therefore an asset when she joined the workshop. “Since the profession of chandelier restorer is no longer taught, it was the former owner of András, André Heine, who trained me in the restoration techniques as passed on by his own father.” Sandrine decided to take over the workshop because she considers it an exciting and complex profession, which she does not want to disappear.
