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: customer@rocaille-design.com

Happy Friday!

Style Inspiration: Lady Cameo

Love this picture of Giovanna Battaglia and her sweet cameo earrings.  She looks so classic and elegant, as always.

We have an unique cameo bracelet (Eva VI) that is Giovanna approve.  This cameo is specially lovely – it is not only beautifully carved, but also the lovely lady cameo wears a pearl necklace around her neck.  Amazing!

Bazar St. Michel in Montreal

I was in Montreal last weekend visiting friends, and had a chance to pop into one of the flea markets in the city just an hour before closing – Bazar St. Michel.  Flea markets are usually a hit and (a lot of ) miss.  But I saw some great vendors and amazing finds, especially for home furnishing and accessories.  Because I went so late, a lot of them have closed up already.  I did, however, manage to get a few goodies.  Worth a visit if you are in Montreal next time.

New bracelets are now available on our website.  They are made from carefully selected vintage and repurposed materials. Each piece is crafted by hand with love in Vancouver, Canada.

Just in time to celebrate Earth Day in style – cherish the past and celebrate the future.

Inside the Studio: Toughened Up Glamour

We are shooting some of the products in the studio today.  Among them is one of my favs – Carmen necklace.  It is a pretty cool piece featuring a pair of repurposed vintage earrings from the 50s.   We gave the original glamorous jewel some toughness to create a nice blend of elegance and edginess.   Wear it to a black tie gala or an indie rock concert.

Just for fun, I picked up my little camera and took a few shots of myself wearing the necklace, and playing with different lengths.  haha.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
