Meet our Artists...
Camille grew up along the French Atlantic Coast in the town of Saint-Jeans-de-Monts, with it's huge expanses of golden sand beaches. Besides attracting sunbathers and beachgoers it has long been an inspiration for artists like her grandparents who moved to the area in the late 1890's. Much of the coast and shoreline is protected with bird sanctuaries and nature reserves making this a paradise for nature lovers. Camille's beautiful jewelry is a testament to her love of nature and the enduring power of the sea.
