Bonbon is known for finding beauty and balance in asymmetrical forms and so, a small round of beautiful rare old beads, each celebrated and pronounced on the strand sits close to the collarbone in deeply poetic colors of night-sky black and Aegean blue-green, rare 1920's bohemian pressed and molded glass. with and smattering of apricot sand, grey and pale blue.
Designed with a vintage silvered-brass Indian bell-shape trailing from the brass clasp at the nape, with the idea of linking us to the gentleness of our sisters across the world.

The Bonbon Story
I've been drawn to antique and vintage beads for as long as I can remember, collecting and culling from American trading posts to dusty French ateliers and markets. Antique beads are humble magical little things to me, evocative, alluring, sexy, hopeful. They are a connection to the imaginations, thought processes and careful workmanship of the hearts and hands of the past. They are the inspiration to create something new from something very old, to cherish all over again, to love and keep or love and share.
