Laurent, the fashion designer from Lab 30 (see Part XI), told us that the woman who was working there was a very talented jewelry designer, and that her work was in the boutique. Of course, we returned to the boutique to find out more. Christiana’s jewelry is intricate beaded work, and absolutely beautiful. Her jewelry line is called Open to the Beautiful Bijoux Paris. Beautiful is her favorite word.
Thanks to my friends Christina Baldwin for interpreting and Hilde van der Sterren for assisting in the studio.
