about - Blue Orchid Art, Overland Park, KS
Blue Orchid Art jewelry incorporates natural and man-made materials without compromising design aesthetic. Nature is the tapestry and ethnic arts the inspiration and guide of my designs. My wish is for the wearer to feel and live the symbolism encoded in my selection of materials and color.
The inspiration for these unique Wearable Art jewelry designs stems from my Asian background, French upbringing and the expansive cultures I have come in contact with over the years. There is a little bit of the world in each of my pieces. From the cultures that offer endless inspiration, and endless options from nature for materials.
My taste leans towards the bold, the large, the statement making, and the refined. This is definitely reflected in my creations. You will not be lost in the crowd with my Wearable Art Jewelry. These memorable pieces stand out and tell the world about you: “This is me, see me.”
My facility with languages and my adaptability to easily blend into different cultures and environments have doubly enriched my life. Climbing the corporate ladder in International Business Development along with consulting work in the latter years provided me the opportunity to work on five continents. This exposed me to different aesthetic and artistic norms of various people and cultures. During this time, I always thought of myself as a “left brain” person. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would launch into an artistic (“right brain”) endeavor.
I would love to design and make custom Wearable Art Jewelry to reflect your personality and taste.
In the Around the World Jewelry category, I include unusual jewelry pieces which spoke to my spirit and sense of aesthetic as well as those that reflected the cultures of the countries I visited.
