Apres une longue silence...une tres bonne nouvelle

Apres quelques mois de travaille, je suis fier de vous annoncer le fruit de tous mes efforts!  Je vous invite a decouvir  la boutique éphémère Noël des Créateurs que j’ai organisée pour le mois de décembre dans le Marais, au 15 rue des Ecouffes, 4ème arrondissement.  L’idée de cette boutique éphémère est de permettre à un groupe d’artistes et créateurs de talent d’exposer et de vendre leurs produits et créations faits main à vous, chers amis, qui êtes probablement maintenant à la recherche de cadeaux de Noël pour vos familles et amis. 

Je suis particulièrement joyeuse de vous inviter à découvrir la nouvelle collection de De Petites Merveilles, ma ligne de bijoux faits main créés exclusivement à partir de perles de verre anciennes.   Voici la photo en haut pour un petit apercu de mes nouveautes!

Soyez rassurées si vous craigniez de n’y voir que des bijoux, vous trouverez également des ravissants vêtements et accessoires pour enfants et adultes et ainsi que nombre d’autres idées de cadeaux qui trouveront parfaitement leurs places sous le sapin de Noël !

La boutique est située au 15, rue des Ecouffes, 75004 Paris et sera ouverte tous les jours du 1er décembre au 29 décembre compris, à l’exception des 25 et 26 décembre. Pour ma part, je serai là tous les week ends de décembre (soit les 1/2, 8/9, 15/16, 22/23/24 décembre) ainsi que les 27, 28 et 29 décembre. Surtout, n’hésitez pas à me rendre visite, cela me fera extrêmement plaisir !

Summer brocante

In August, the city slows down till I get the feeling that I have it all to myself. Its not unusual to find streets full of closed shuttered shops and restaurants. As there is hardly a soul around, it is not surprising that my well loved brocantes are likewise absent.  

This summer,  I had the pleasure of discovering several summer brocantes in the countryside. I started in Aillant sur Tholon and then managed to go to two more. Let me tell you about the one in Barjac.

One weekend we visited Obernai and its a lovely place right in the heart of the wine making region of Alsace. 


But what struck me was that we kept stumbling upon unexpectedly fanciful touches like the dragon on a gate or the stuffed bears hanging out from the windows.

But my absolute favorite was finding the little family of ducks.  Relatives of the Puddleducks you think?

Aillant sur Tholon

By now dear friends, you know how much I love brocantes.  And I havent been very good about posting my recent jaunts. But I recently went to a massive one thanks to a tip from a friend.

This one was in a little village called Aillant sur Tholon, about an hour and a half away from Paris.  Its tiny with a population of about 1400 or so on a good week but on THE brocante weekend, the population swells to about 30000.  So I had no qualms dragging my family to this brocante. How could I not?

I started out bright and early, when you could still see the dewdrops glistening on the grass. And I was far from the first bird there, professional buyers started at 4 am, in order to catch the choicest bits. That said, there were tons of things to marvel at. As this is a picture heavy post, read on after the jump...

Sign of life

 Hello friends, I hope are all enjoying your summer.  The blog has been hibernating a little.   I've been working on a big project which I am excited to share when all is in place.  In the meantime summer is here and I have to say that this too has distracted me. Here are a few photos taken from our trip in Amsterdam.

We lucked out and enjoyed beautiful weather...look at the blue sky!

We wandered around the canals, peering into houseboats and marveling at the distinct architecture of the city.

Its such a bustling and dynamic city but there are pockets of calm to be found.

 Of course it wouldn't be Amsterdam without all the bikes!

 One street we liked was filled with flowers and I couldn't resist taking a picture..

 A wonderful example of 19th century houses...

 all with their own private boats.

Pop up store

Hello folks, I'm happy to announce that I will be part of a Pop-Up store over at the 15th arrondissement tomorrow, the 26th of June.  Its my first time in this location and I hope to meet lots of jewelry loving people!

Here's a sneak peek of some of the lovely pieces I'm bringing...

Here are the details:

I was so moved when I opened the mail and saw this thank you note. A friend bought a present for his mother and he chose a bracelet I made with a wonderful blue eye trade bead from the 19th century and vintage  Majorca glass pearls.  His mother loved it, he said.

 I work from home and while this allows me great independence and flexibility, sometimes it makes me wonder whether what I do is good or not.   When  a piece sells, I feel happy that it pleased someone else.  It makes it easier to let go of my pieces, knowing that people are happy to have them and my pieces find good homes. Its even better when  I get proof in the mail like this gracious handwritten note.
