Handcrafted jewelry by French Designer

My friend Lisiane is from the south of France just like us , but we met here in San Diego over 20 years ago . She makes beautiful dainty jewelry , all handcrafted right here in SoCal …local with a French flair ! Each piece is unique but since you cannot come in right now , I will bring our selection out of the case for you to choose from the safety of your home . These make wonderful gifts , birthday , graduation , mom …

Lisiane uses gold-filled , a much better quality than gold platted allowing her to hammer the thread and shape it as she wishes . She also uses sterling silver , semi precious stones and  fresh water pearls . Necklaces unless specified are about 16″ long with an extension chain to adjust it to about  17″ .

Comment avoir la classe ?

How to be classy yet comfortable and casual ?? It is all in the accessories !

Clients kept asking me where I got my shirt, scarf , earrings …so I decided to carry what I love in the shop . San Diego is not Paris or New York ; we are way more lay back here … I like to be casual and need to be comfortable at work but I won’t sacrifice style  ! As Mother’s Day is fast approaching , here are a few ideas in case you thought Maison en Provence was just a Home and Garden Boutique !

Beautiful light weight cotton voile shirt with puffy sleeves , lace detail …wear it belted or not on those warm summer days !

This is the best cross body bag I ever got . Made in Tuscany out of washable paper , it is weightless , practical , spacious and yes classy ! You can be a tourist and not look like one on your next summer trip …These bags get softer and wear like a good pair of jeans as you use it . Come in 3 shapes and 8 colors that will go with everything in your wardrobe ! And if you dare ….wear it around the waste to belt a shirt or dress because YES the fanny pack is making a come back !

We also received a new shipment of clutches from Japan . I selected some lighter color Obis for the season . These will be perfect for summer parties, weddings…or just for a ladies night out to dress up a white pair of jeans or linen pants !

Grand Prix de la Creation

 

Tzuri Gueta is a designer and textile engineer who has been based in Paris since 1996.
By combining silicone with openwork textile materials, Gueta invented a technique of blowing silicone into lace. The technique was patented in 2005. The countless facets of this combination of materials afforded him an unexpected field for exploration that began with textile design and led him to jewelry, design objects and art.
His first collaboration with an Haute Couture house was with Thierry Mugler and also lately with the Chanel fashion house . He was awarded by the City of Paris ” Grand Prix de la Création “.

Now we are very proud to bring his creations to you here in San Diego !
