inspiration

My husband always finds the best books. He loves architecture and he recently bought this book : Born Modern : The life and design of Alvin Lustig. He was an important designer back in the 50'-60' in the US.

This designer inspired me for my new line 2011. Here are some earrings...Everything will be in rose gold 14k.

New cord bracelet : "zen" in 18 k yellow gold

I really wanted to introduce in my new January collection a version of  "ZEN" bracelet in yellow gold 18k. It is made by hand by my team in San francisco. It took them 3 hours to make the first sample!. Zen garden and modern house japanese garden were my principal inspiration.

Zen in my mind..:)

Paris...

Sometimes, I do miss my city : Paris-france. I miss the architecture and parks/gardens like : "Le jardin du luxembourg". I found these chairs in the beautiful garden of the Getty in LA and it reminds me a little the atmosphere that you can feel in the "jardin  du luxembourg" in Paris.
