I know it’s February 2013 already and I don’t dare looking at the date of my last post but you know what? Since Nemo – the snow storm – hit New York last Friday, the city covered by a white coat brings me back 2 month ago in the Holiday mood! At the time I was exhibiting at One of a Kind show in Chicago presenting for the first time my little winter friend that had been ready for almost a year now, let me introduce to you Rudolf the reindeer!
The sweetness of the slightly acid lollipop, the bright colors of the balloons rising in the sky, the afternoons in the garden spent to make up stories, the cold of this chocolate ice cream on the teeth, this dizzy feeling after hours on the swing… These childhood memories will never die.
Tim Walker, one of my favorites photographers, knows particularly well how to keep this extraordinary sense of imagination and staging only a grown up creative child could have. I try not to include all his photographs because it’s impossible to choose. To see more of his amazing work, here is his official website.
This context illustrates my jump rope necklace as a wink to childhood and as a drop of carefreeness in our busy lives. The necklace is available in silver or gold plated version in a wide range of enamel colors. Feel free to email me for any custom made request.

Since I have been browsing a lot lately through the online creative community, I came across a lot of beautiful pictures, prints and artwork that I started collecting. As I was naturally seduced by the themes encompassing my own jewelry, I decided to create a new kind of regular post on my blog: my jewelry in context.
You will find hereafter its first edition and the sources for all the pictures after the composition. Hope you will enjoy it!

Dear french readers, from now on I will write my posts in english: my old azerty french computer having passed away the new one I got has qwerty keyboard and neither accent nor cedille. As I hate spelling mistakes in my mother tongue I prefer writing only in english because my english mistakes are more forgivable!
Arrived in New York I took a sales associate job in a jewelry store to finance my jewelry making expenses. I always had to have on me my phone, my business cards, some notes for my customers and the key of the store but didn’t want to carry a regular size handbag. As I couldn’t find a bag matching my requirements for size and style I decided to design my own. Indeed I already had the leather I was using to add color to my hot air balloon necklaces and I knew a place making very qualitative handmade frames for the style of purses I love. Some sketches, a research for color matching among my leather samples and here after is the result. The 3 first one of a kind bags are available in my etsy shop so hurry if you love them!
La collection Dear Peacock sera bientôt disponible à la vente sur ma boutique Etsy, en attendant vous pouvez admirer les nouvelles photos prises à nouveau sur la belle Sophie mais cette fois en intérieur et non plus de nuit à Central Park!
The newest Dear Peacock collection will soon be available on my Etsy online boutique, in the mean time you can still admire the new photographs taken again with the beautiful Sophie but indoor this time and not by night in Central Park!
Un week-end à Nantes, une promenade parmi les grues Titan de Nantes et quelques inspirations de mise en scène du Voyage en Ballon… Les 2ème et 3ème photos sont issues du profil Flickr de François et Marie que j’ai découverts au hasard de mes recherches gruesques!
Depuis le dernier Shopping & Bubbles, les bagues space partent comme des petits pains! Marie a la version plaquée or et Deedee la version plaquée argent, je la remercie d’ailleurs chaleureusement au passage pour son super article du 14 septembre. Merci aussi pour le post sur le blog Petites Curiosités, dont la créatrice fait de très jolis bijoux!
Comme vous les plébiscitez tellement, les petits envahisseurs ont bien mérité d’avoir leur catégorie à eux : vous y retrouverez les bagues, les pin’s émaillés ou non, les boucles d’oreilles et les boutons de manchettes, le tout plaqué or ou plaqué argent.
Vous pourrez d’ailleurs directement vous procurer mes derniers modèles de boutons de manchette et de pin’s plaqué argent sur l’e-shop de Matières à Réflexion.
L’invasion ne fait que commencer…
