Rachel Péloquin

Paris based designer Rachel Péloquin started creating this line of leather and chain link jewelry in the fall of 2010. Black, soft gray and rose petal pink leather are hand woven through the gold links to make for a strong, sexy, feminine look. The larger necklaces that tie with grosgrain ribbons can also be worn as belts. When I first came across them at her studio, Beau Travail, I was immediately attracted to the tactility of the materials, the soft leather and smooth metal links just feel good to the touch, but also to the balance of elegance and strength that they give off when worn. It's a great design and clearly Rachel has an intuitive approach to jewelry design as to her prints for housewares like pillows and towels.
