Manon and Camille invited me to spend some quality time with them last week, where we started with dinner at a lovely Thai restaurant, and ended with drinks at Chez Lucien, a quaint little French pub where Camille works. The last few weeks had been emotionally charged for the girls and their sisters Adèle and Julie, who had just found out some very sad news concerning their mom, and they just needed to let off some steam. I was so happy to be part of this evening, and to finally get to meet Julie for the first time!
Adèle, Camille, Julie, et Manon
I knew what Manon wanted most: Last year, Camille got a lovely Freeform Peyote bracelet, all in white. And although Manon loved the pieces I offered her, this bracelet really caught her eye. So, I made her one! As for Camille, that was a bit tougher. She's the epitome of style, and is a great art connaisseur, so I wanted to give her something that could seem extravagant, without being so. I knew exactly what would suit her, and made sure I brought every material needed to finish the hand-knotted strands of freshwater pearls I'd started my last week home (yes, the same week I spent agonizing over whether my apartment would be suitable for a Posh Party, LOL!) I finished both during my stay at my Papa's, and am happy to report that they both loved their gifts.
Here is Manon, showing off her new bracelet called "Ice"
(Man alive! I always have a hard time making bracelets for these two, they have such teenie writs!!!)

She got a great compliment from Lisa that night, who declared the strands "So Channel!"
(well color me Proud!)
