Guilloché (or Guilloche) is a decorative engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design is mechanically engraved into an underlying material with fine detail. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine “that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces”. The machine, called a rose engine, improved upon the more time-consuming practice of making similar designs by hand, allowing for greater delicacy, precision, and closeness of the line, as well as greater speed.

I love French antiques….. I love making things…. I have combined my two passions to create my Artisan Jewelry business since 2008.
Yes…I LOVE what I do…..I am definitely a Francophile at heart. My passion for making things goes back as far as I can remember.
When I was a girl, I was always making something by hand. I studied Jewelry at the University of Delaware and have come full circle in my life…and oh, how Sweet it is!
I want to thank all of my wonderful customers, some who I am now blessed to call my Friends. Hope to see you soon!
