We’re Moving!

This summer, we’ll be moving to my hometown of Lyon, in the southeast of France.Living in New York has been the experience of a lifetime.

Now I’m beyond excited for what comes...

We were lucky to get our hands on a handful of them and decided to turn them into jewelry. A little bit of Camille D. magic later, we’re delighted to introduce...

When We’re Not Making Jewelry

Recently, we took you through our jewelry making process, from sourcing vintage lace to putting the final touches to our pieces. There are many other things that go into running a small business so, today, we thought we’d share a non-exhaustive list of what we do, in and out of our Brooklyn atelier. In no particular order, we: Scour flea markets or yard sales for vintage lace. We love chatting with the stall owners to learn more about the fabric’s origin. Take pretty pictures. Showcasing our pieces in the best possible way makes all the difference. Once or twice a year, we organize a photoshoot in Paris with our favorite photographer, Nicolas Darde. The rest of the time, we have...
