Bonbon Oiseau

Aegea Necklace



The colors of a sparkling ancient sea, a feeling it may have belonged to a queen, maybe a goddess, unearthed from a wave, the colors of icy geometric pale blue glass from Western Africa, rare old Bohemian glass beads from turn of the century Paris in Aegean green-blue, shades of green from pistachio to cactus and a pop of pure white and smokey grey for balance.
The beauty of owning a longer strand of beads is how it empowers you and any outfit you pair it with--it's slight weight, it's intense pop of color, it's ability to take anything else you wear to 11, the message it sends that you know what you're doing.

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.
