L'artiste de bijoux


Well as you all know, I've met some incredible friends in Paris through my blogs, but now I've added some new amis through Facebook!  Shauna von Giesbrecht and I met through a mutual Paris friend in the fall so it was only natural that we planned a face to face meeting in January. Shauna, who hails from Vancouver, is a multi- talented artist.  She not only designs and makes fabulous jewelry pieces but also creates the most marvelous handmade textiles. There will be more photos to come!

Mary, Peter and I visited her lovely little boutique in Montmartre the second day we were in Paris.  After we'd oohed and aahed and tried on everything to our heart's desire, we trekked up the hill in the rain for a delicious lunch with Shauna.  More on that great place another time. Be sure to visit her website to see her many delightful creations!
