Bonbon Oiseau

Who is Bonbon?

[bonbon: {french}; sweet, a little candy, something good //  oiseau (wazoe) {french}; bird]



Artists & designers. {the bonbon oiseau workshop} creates paintings & embroideries, jewelry & adornment, creative experiences and other ethereal objects and ideas since 2004.

This pop-up shop shares with you artworks and small-run designs, handmade in the spirit of the Arts & Crafts movement and the traditions of artisans around the world. Inspired by: authenticity in everything we do, old stories & epiphanies, daydreamers and adventurers and the amazing courageous folks of every land we've visited and some we've only read about. We respect the beautiful ways people have surrounded and adorned themselves with beauty since the first bead was unearthed over 40,000 years ago and the first pigment was ground. 


Everywhere we go we bring our paints. We dig for rare old beads and new ideas in ancient shops in Paris, trading posts in the plains and mountains of the American West and markets all over the world. We bring them back home and re-imagine them in our N Y C workshop with love and humor. 



"To find & share beauty in all forms is an expression of our humanity."
