Out with the old … in with the new!
In order to make some room for new designs and color palettes, some of the Piece de Resistance sets will be getting a well-earned retirement. Since they also feature elements like ribbons, pearls and accents that have limited availability, once they are gone, they are gone!
Here are the items to be phased out:
– Golightly Enamel Bangle Set
– Golightly Gleaming Curiosities Necklace
– Savoy Truffle Bangle Set
– Savoy Truffle Gleaming Curiosities Necklace
With new designs and enamel shades on the workbench, new sets will be debuted as these all time favourites are slowly phased out.
Have a color / style suggestion for new bangle sets? I’d love to know! Please leave a comment with your ideas.
Out of all the bold shades that are trending for this autumn, my favourites are the shades of orange and saffron that are too beautiful to pass up. Whether I’m whipping up a batch of Parisian macarons or set of enameled bangles, it seems like warm citrus tones just have a magnetic draw. It seems like the perfect color for mixing – it plays so well with mocha, pink, blue, and purple . . . is there a single color that isn’t set off by an accent of orange?

The rich colors and textures of Eugène Delacroix’s oil paintings still strike a chord with me – the dramatic scenes of men hunting on horseback contrasting with the intimate glimpses of Algerian interiors is a combination too luring to resist.
Traveling to Morroco and North Africa in 1832, shortly after Algeria was taken by the French, Delacroix was enamoured with the people and clothing and daily scenes that surrounded him. By far I love the paintings he made during this time most of all. These were some of the most inspiring when I starting looking for something to kickstart my ideas for new jewelry, along with the 1930’s drama, Algiers.
“Eugène Delacroix was a curious mixture of skepticism, politeness, dandyism, willpower, cleverness, despotism, and finally, a kind of special goodness and tenderness that always accompanies genius”.
