Jewelry Makeover – London Edition

If you ask me what the “must-have” in life is, I’d say “travel”.  Recently, a customer and a friend came back from London.  As her souvenirs, she brought back 4 vintage pieces from the Portobello Market – a rhinestone bracelet and 4 lovely little brooches.  She asked if I can custom design something for her with these lovely finds.

The first one was a no brainer because two of the pieces are just meant to be found together.  We simply paired up the bracelet with the gold rhinestone bow brooch as the size and the design match quite well together.  It was as simple as 1+1.

For the other two brooches, after going over a few ideas with her together.  We decided to make them into two separate necklaces.

Necklace #1:  Baroque Luxe

Necklace #2:  Victorian Chic

Hope you like we did for her.  If you would like to get a makeover for any of your special pieces, we’d love to hear from you.  Contact us at:

Happy Friday!

Holiday Glam – Final Preparation

For those of you who are in Vancouver, we are having a holiday trunk show tomorrow night at the Jacqueline Conoir Studio.  Very excited to unveil our latest collection!  If you are not in Vancouver, please be sure to check our website for the latest glitz.



Style Inspiration – Dressing Up the Collar

An easy way to dress up and transform a simple shirt is to button the shirt all the way up and pin a beautiful brooch right at the top button.  It’s a chic modern way to wear your grandmother’s vintage brooch.  You can also wear a ribbon bow under the brooch for additional detail.
