60, rue de Richelieu

Today I was happy to head for the showroom at 60, rue de Richelieu, to meet jewelry designer Deb from Bonbon Oiseau. Not only did I get to admire her exquisite and whimsical work, but I also got to meet her and have a chat; she's sweet and smart, a genuine artist and a wonderful woman...

I was thrilled to be around so many inspired designers, and fell in love with many brands, amongst which Warmi, a French-Colombian brand that offers the most delicate yet bold knits ever.

As a sea lover I love the little whale money clip! But I wouldn't mind getting my little hands on the other beautiful items either, hee hee!

That's an interesting design, the skull and bones.

LITTLEBIRD - yes, it's a caplet, and a very lovely one indeed. They also had it in a creamy white.

WORLD IN A PAN - it's a charm bracelet.

SEALAURA - I adore whales so I totally fell for the whale money clip too. Maybe someone will treat me for X-mas...

ANIL P - yes, I love that motif too. A little punk, a little pirate, very chic too.
