Mathilde de Turckheim
Each piece is hand sewn by a Parisian jewelry designer, Mathilde de Turckheim who was born in Beirut, raised in France, spent several years in West Africa, and now resides in New York City. After studying painting and drawing at various Parisian ateliers, Ms. de Turckheim spent nine years selling high-end Italian textiles to French Ready-to-Wear designers including such renowned firms as Paul & Joe.
Now, the designer is using her playful imagination creating a series of one-of-a-kind dolls, broches and necklaces that project exotic colors, ethnic touches, rich textures, and vintage accessories. Her items are designed in Paris, hand made in Bangladesh and retouched and finished with the details in Paris.
