Celebrate the Holidays…
After training with some of the top designers, from Alaia to Balmain and Kenzo, and having graduated from the Duperré School of Applied Arts in Paris, Marie Laure Chamorel focusing her energies upon her own label of luxury accessories which bears her name since 2006.
Marie Laure is driven by a desire to give each piece of jewelry its own unique spirit. Her inspiration goes beyond the boundaries of the pre-established fashions. She seeks out vintage pearls, ribbons, and old lace. These basic elements undergo a transformation, blending couture and jewelry, as she enriches them with hand embroidery and wraps pearls in turbans of muslin, silk and leather. The collection is made up of long sautoir necklaces and manchette cuff bracelets.
During many trips abroad, Marie Laure came to admire artisanal gold and silver work from many ethnicities from around the globe. From this was born LUXUME, her second collection, with Secret Box pendants, solid silver and silk charm bracelets, and long, dangling earrings dipped in gold and ruthenium.
Marie Laure’s jewellery embodies the latest in artisanal luxury, a love for the hand-made.

It’s a challenge we all face with jewelry: multiple boxes and hiding spots make it hard to keep track of it. Before long, chains wind up in knots, earrings become elusive, and rings vanish in the bottom of your bag. In just three steps you can make your organizing system as beautiful as your gems! Why hide your best baubles in a box when you can put them on display?
1. Compartmentalize your way. Consider how you look for your jewelry; then take everything out and reorder your collection, adapting or replacing containers. Most jewelry boxes are designed to store rings, necklaces, etc. in separate compartments. You can also organize by occasion, dividing your pieces into casual and formal; by sets; or by color group.
2. Find the prime location. Before you buy any new boxes or dividers, decide where you want to keep your “everyday” wear.
3. Protect your jewels. Whether their value is monetary or sentimental, your jewels are treasures. Organizing them now guarantees a lifetime of enjoying the bounty.
We hope this post inspires you to store your pieces in a beautiful yet easy and accessible way, because what fashionista doesn’t like function and fashion?!
