Old jazz playing in the background, the meandering Seine River in sight, sipping a cuppa alfresco style in a Paris sidewalk cafe in the late afternoon. These are the images that inspired me when crafting these necklaces. Trying to recapture the romanticism of bygone days, lace appliqués that are imported from Japan, are used as the centerpiece, while other elements wrap themselves around to create a flamboyant display that’s so associated with the French’s ardor.


To saunter down this season’s springtime catwalk, you’ll need some frills to mix n’ match – flouncy sheers, lace in tones of white, cream, silver & black, or small floral prints. If lace on a outfit is not your cup of tea, why not consider a handcrafted French-inspired lace necklace to update your look, display an ounce of romantic girlishness that’s one of the key looks this season?
