"I design and handcraft beaded and Soutache jewelry for my French Mermaid Collection. My Soutache is a unique, meticulously stitched & beaded art form that is reminiscent of ancient times yet melds with any current fashion style.
My tutoring in hand-stitching and fine embroidery from my very skilled French grandmother began at the age of five. Sewing, beading, writing, art work, crocheting, cooking; all things creative have always been an integral part of my life. You could say that I've had a varied creative life majoring in Commercial Art and Photography, Couturiere of ladies formal wear, wedding gowns (to include restoration of Vintage gowns), and formal/bridal accessories; French Vintage reproduction dresses and smocking for children; and belly-dancing costumes. Mix it all together with my eight years in the retail jewelry business and you have French Mermaid Collection.
I have lived in two of the great sea ports of Europe, close to where the Lost Continent of Atlantis is fabled to exist. I was born in Marseille, France and spent some time in Trieste, Italy. My husband and I presently reside on the Emerald Coast of SW Florida."
