At La Comtesse de Talaru I offer my carefully curated selection of antique French jewelry and collectibles. This store has been operating on Etsy since 2009 and I have sold thousands of precious pieces to hundreds of collectors around the world.

Since 2008 I have been re-purposing antique treasures into new designs. This method of jewelry making involves taking orignal antique pieces, such as buckles, brooches, pendants and chains and working them into new, modern and wearable designs. So often these antique elements are discarded for no longer being fashionable. I give them a new lease of life in my modern heirloom creations.

After amassing a large collection of beautiful, rare jewelry and components I decided to offer a limited range of reproductions in the form of finished jewelry designs: necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. My reproduction elements are cast from antique master patterns that I own and are professionally moulded and cast to produce an exact replica of these precious antiques.

Using Photoshop I compose digital artworks from my personal collection of old prints, documents and books. These artworks are professionally printed onto quality fabric and offered for sale as finished cushion (pillow) covers or flat printed fronts for you to sew your own cover. <y signature style is a digital collage using old tests, handwriting and colourful bird and flower prints.

Expanding on my love of digital art, I have expended my range by offering eclectic and unusual art stamps and downloadable paper crafting supplies. My stamps allow you to make a different impression, using images inspired by alchemy, mysticism, freemasonry and heraldry. Stamps are professionally manufactured as unmounted clear stamps that can be used with an acrylic block.
