Perlentine started eighteen years ago, then in Paris (I am French), now in San Francisco, California, where we live. What was first a hobby became rapidly a passion, I started exclusively with venetian beads, from Murano in Italy and now I like to mix different kind of beads like blown glass, crystal, wood, water pearls, resin beads…, on all kinds of support like wires, ribbons, buttons, fabrics, leather….
The choice of beads is the essence of my inspiration. Even if it’s easy to find beads from all over the world in gem fairs, my passion leads me to purchase beads everywhere I go. From Italy to Morocco, China to India, they all have an important place in my heart and each of them drives my creations.
Everything is handmade by me. No mass production, just personal touch of French elegance. I like to create simple, sometimes surprising and even funny, but always delicate and classy jewels you can enjoy everyday. My best reward is seeing women wearing what’s right for them!
