Yesterday I had a lunch date with my friend Kande (the designer of French Kande jewelry). I’d been wanting to try on some of the pieces from her new FK Petite line, so met her at the studio.
It’s always such a treat to visit! The space is full of charm and French style inspiration. Kande loves Paris as much as I do; it was one of the things we first bonded over. She started her jewelry line with some vintage medallions she found at the marché aux puces, and regularly visits to search out more.
She’d set out a tray of the FK Petite necklaces, and I quickly selected two in gold to try. Loved them both from the get-go! During the summer, I often wear open-neck tops, so have been wanting some shorter necklaces to wear with them.
They look great with this leopard tee, but are a little hard to see in the photo. Below: with a different top. I’m wearing the Rochelle necklace on a shorter setting here.
These FK Petite necklaces also layer nicely with the original French Kande designs. And the lengths are adjustable to accommodate different necklines! They’re very light, and perfect to wear with breezy summer fashions. I’ll be packing both for our trip.
All of the French Kande pieces are made in the USA by local artisans. The quality and workmanship of these pieces is excellent.
We had a wonderful time catching up over chicken kabob wraps. And Kande showed me some of the designs she’s working on for her next collection. They are fun and very cool, and I can’t wait to see the final pieces!
Do you prefer more delicate jewelry, or bolder styles?
