to mom…♥

The story of my ‘Joie de Vivre’ collection begins like any fairy tale with ‘once upon a time’… Years ago, when I was a kid, I loved visiting my Mom at her work place. She was a dress maker, so the studio was filled with treasures like glittering sequins & rhinestones, delicate lace trims and beautiful buttons. During one of my visits, I gazed with fascination at the rich colors and textures of some left-over fabrics.  Patiently, I started rolling delicate flowers from each and every color.  Mom joined in and lovingly hand-stitched them with me.  She then continued sewing the various delightful and amazingly life-like flowers into colorful necklaces that immediately became my very favorites.
Image With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I felt that it was the right time to pay homage to my Mom’s floral necklaces. While updating the designs with sparkling Swarovski crystals and silky textiles for splashes of color, I was careful to preserve the ever optimistic spirit , the Joy of Life and the love that my Mom ‘infused’ into my childhood necklaces.
