A Little Bit About Me:

I have lived and spent time in several countries throughout the globe, and as you will see, my inspirations come from the great fortune of the many travels that I have made.

My love for creating accessories all began with a visit to the Dallas Museum of Art, where an exhibition of Lalique’s art nouveau jewelry was being displayed. The imagination and beauty of his creations are absolutely amazing. Thus, my obsession for all things sparkly, art nouveau, victorian, edwardian, and vintage began... but especially, art nouveau.

Several of the objects I love creating are also inspired by the seven years that I lived in New Orleans (Mon Amour and muse). There, a world of sultry decadence, colour, history, music, whimsy, masquerades, pinups, parades, burlesque, creole cuisine, Mardi Gras Indians, second lines, architecture, and oaks melting with spanish moss enraptured my attention.

The name of my shop originates from the room I treasure most, my bedroom. It’s a secretive place dripping in artwork, lingerie, sparklies, costumes, and wigs. It is, very affectionately, my boudoir.
