About

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about our shop, Fleur de Lola! We are a husband and wife team who design, create, and produce - objects of art and beauty for your admiration and enjoyment. We run our shop together - and I am the wife of the team. We are both rock - n- roll musicians who had moderately successful original bands from the 1970's-1990's. After touring and putting out records, we ran into each other again and got married......20 years later!

Now we have put our efforts together to bring our visual creativity and training to you through Fleur de Lola. My husband and I both have a strong background in jewelry designing and production and we share a love of all things vintage as well. I have an extensive education and background in art and design, and am particularly obsessed with color theory. I am amazed and intrigued with how colors react to each other - I never tire of…

Now we have put our efforts together to bring our visual creativity and training to you through Fleur de Lola. My husband and I both have a strong background in jewelry designing and production and we share a love of all things vintage as well. I have an extensive education and background in art and design, and am particularly obsessed with color theory. I am amazed and intrigued with how colors react to each other - I never tire of it. Line, form and balance are elements that are always carefully executed in my work - I specialize in the painstakingly detailed collage pieces that we carry, as well as the pen and ink paintings that are all signed, dated and numbered as one of a kind. I approach pretty much every necklace or bracelet I create as a one of a kind expressionist painting - I enjoy dispersing just spots of color where you might least expect it. All of our jewelry pieces are one of a kind (unless otherwise stated) and are composed of glass, gemstones, all kinds of metals, (we often use rare and vintage examples of the elements I just mentioned), and occasionally antique celluloid Cracker Jack charms are used as well. We love to combine antique and vintage glass of all shapes, colors, and textures with garnets and other semi-precious stones, and Czech and Lampworked glass too!

We love Etsy - maybe a little too much, for I have found many,many vintage treasures that I just had to purchase! But we really believe in the Etsy philosophy of repurposing, and salvaging beautiful old things that are in perfectly wonderful condition. We are so happy to be a part of the Etsy community and like to see all the shops in this very special and alternative marketplace succeed! Our hope is that you will find something in our shop that speaks to you - and we are always happy to create custom pieces for our customers who have " A Vision" that they would like to see brought to life. We hope you enjoy our shop today - and that you will stop in frequently - for there is so much more beauty to come!

By the way - his birthday is August 5th :)
