Folksy Friday ~ Parisian Perfection

 Paris: Je t'adore

*La Pâtisserie Gloppe au Champs-Élysées (1889)

Paris is often called the City of Love and along with that title, for me it also conjures up images of romance, vintage glamour, sophistication, a touch of magic and so much more!
Paris, the largest City in France, has a vibrant history and many famous landmarks, such as the Notre Dame de Paris, Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre!  Other symbols of France include the Eiffel Tower and the Fleur de Lis (Lily flower)!  There is also too much to say about Paris, than can be covered in my small blog post, so I will now talk about my favourite passe temps (pastime) creating Jewellery!

Paris often provides the inspiration for jewellery and accessories!  I have created some wearable Paris themed pieces which attempt to capture the magic of this famous City!  I have also include a selection of Paris and French themed beauties from some talented artists over at Folksy!
