Inspired by a necklace worn by her mother in the 70s, designer Jeannine Denholm's La Bijou Belle 2008 jewelry collection offers a fresh take by using crochet rather than traditional metallic chain.  A throwback to laidback yet elegant Bohemian style as well as fashion greats including Coco Chanel and Christian Lacroix, La Bijou Belle's hand-crocheted pieces have the look of metal chains but are lightweight and durable.  Crochet tassel bracelets, single stone lariats, pearl and multi-stone tassel necklaces round out the collection, which features smoky quartz and white jade stones.  Handmade at La Bijou Belle's studio in downtown Los Angeles, pieces retail from $120 to $180.    

Unique features of La Bijou Belle:

  • Perfect for layering
  • Ideal for summertime and the beach
    no need to deal with hot metal jewelry on warm summer days
  • Safe for women with metal allergies
  • Crocheted chain is washable and won't fray
  • Pieces are more flexible and less prone to break than traditional metal chain
    great for moms with curious small children

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Denholm is an Emmy award-winning television producer who fell into jewelry design after she began transforming grandmother vintage jewelry into pieces you could wear today. Thus, La Bijou Belle, The Beautiful Jewel, was born. Celebrities who wear La Bijou Belle include Marcia Cross, Sophia Bush, and Gabrielle Union.

La Bijou Belle is sold online and at select boutiques across the country, including Belle Gray in Los Angeles.  Line sheets, samples, and high res images readily available.  To learn more, please visit
