La Vie Parisienne by Catherine Popesco
Rambling about Paris, Catherine discovered a treasure trove of stampings– many over 200 years old in the old factories and workshops of Paris. Most of these gems were originally designed by celebrated artists and shining lights of their era, such as Lalique, Mucha, Galle and Picasso.
With her vivid imagination, Catherine uses the invaluable treasures of French artistic heritage and style to create an exquisite collection of handmade jewelry and decorative objects.
Catherine, creator and owner of the international jewelry and accessory company La Vie Parisienne, is a Paris native and the leading force reviving the elegance and grace of France's golden Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras.
Manufactured at Au Bout de Reves, a workshop Catherine herself built on a vineyard in the heart of the Loire Valley, France, each piece is rendered from the original molds and stamping, hand set with Austrian crystals and finally painstakingly enameled by her team of highly skilled artisans.
Never one to rest long on her laurels, Catherine travels the world sampling new cultures and incorporating the essences of these far off lands into her own work. A visionary, Catherine's artistic and creative sensibilities have taken her into numerous creative fields beyond fashion and jewelry design.
