In the French language, “bijou” is defined as a small, exquisitely wrought trinket. I thought this was the perfect noun to describe my handmade pieces.
When my youngest was an infant, I re-discovered jewelry-making (I had dabbled in it throughout college, and sold pieces at craft shows.) I soon realized that I had not just a love for creating jewelry, but a passion, and a skill that I could continue to grow. What initially began as an enjoyable hobby years ago has turned into a career in jewelry design.
