A French Romance is a collection of bridal jewelry and accessories. The collection is crafted with handmade eco-friendly lace in France in a romantic style.

“A French Romance” is a collection of handmade jewelry and wedding accessories. It puts forward the idea of a production of unique pieces and small series according to old world techniques. But it also speaks of love!

I am a lucky woman who lives a wonderful romance for over 15 years. Through my creations for brides, I speak of that happiness, romance and love.

ABOUT MY WORK
My jewelry are either unique pieces or small series. In all cases they are hand-made by myself. I can well ensure meticulous care and constant attention to quality.

The collection “A French Romance” is crafted with handmade lace in France. The famous French lace are part of my heritage. Traditional techniques of lace are so tendered to date to become valuable jewelry and hair ornaments.

I live in the French country side and I am concerned about the ecological footprint of my business. This is why I make handmade products in our standardized world, and that’s why I try to choose the best approach for nature and for my customers health.

    Creator, Designer, Owner

    I live and I work at my home in France, in the Normandy countryside. I grew up among the threads and fabrics. Very young my grandmother taught me sewing, knitting and crocheting. Thereafter I started the embroidery. Then I had a passion for drawing and painting. That kept me away for a while from the fiber world, until I met lace. I started making lace in 2009 because I dreamed of learning to do. I just take a book but it has taken many, many hours! Jewelry and accessories that I present in my shop are of course the result of these years of work. I draw my own patterns and I manufactures myself. My lace style has often seduced brides, and I’m happy because the wedding universe makes me dream. For me who lives a beautiful love story with my husband, it is a joy to work for romance!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Jewelry and accessories are made with technical threads which provides textile which naturally have a good performance. So there is no chemical addition to stiffen jewelry.

These accessories are not particularly fragile and require a special maintenance. If necessary, they can be hand washed and laid flat.

Eco friendly thread

It is clear that the definition of a sustainable approach in this area is extremely complex.

In the absence of legislation on ecological and ethics jewelry , I offer my personal and sincere approach.


You can see the OEKO-TEX mention on many textile jewelry & accessories in my shop.

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, what is it? This is a certification to ensure the human-ecological qualities of textiles. Indeed, the textile industry is known to use chemicals considered hazardous to health. The OEKO-TEX label is awarded by an independent German association and ensures consumers an absence (or very low) undesirable substances to health and the environment (formaldehyde, heavy metals, chlorinated phenols, pesticides, etc.).

Gift wrapping and packaging

Because the ecological approach is important to me, you will receive your orders in recyclable cardboard packaging.
I take care of the packaging so that everything arrives in good condition. Do not forget to recycle packaging :)

Custom and personalized orders

I manufacture my products one by one based on custom requests. There are however some products in stock: Products in stock present are clearly indicated. These products are ready to ship. Any order that is not about a product in stock is a custom order. A completion time is therefore expected before shipment.

I offer a wide range of possible customizations site: change colors, change beads, metal change …

If you want other personalization than suggested this is also possible. An exchange of emails is necessary to define your desires and you create a listing specific product to your order. In this case, once the article made, a picture can be sent by e-mail for confirmation and

Colors

Most of the models that I present are available in different colors: light white, off-white, ivory.
Light white is the brightest shade of white.
Off-white will be ideal with natural bristles.
Ivory is a cream white color.


Know that the person who handles your dress may be using a different vocabulary. If you have a doubt, I highly recommend you to order samples: https://www.etsy.com/listing/476985597/samples-for-veils-birdcage-netting-laces?ref=listings_manager_grid

The veils and birdcages are available in 2 colors: Light white and Pale Ivory.

The color Light white is as clear and bright as a sheet of paper. Pale Ivory is a color that will fit easily with a natural white dress as well as with ivory.
