About Belle Époque Creations
What inspired you to open your shop?
I have always been a creative person. I have many artistic interests but sewing seems to bring me the most pleasure in this stage of my life. I love to travel Europe and collect buttons, lace, and fabric, antique and vintage pieces for my handbags. The two loves merged and became a shop for my creative and travel outlet. I named my shop Belle Époque Creations after the time period I love la Belle Époque. I love the romance and style of this era (1871-1914). When I first started my shop I tried to add a little Belle Époque to my bags with antique French buttons, lace, etc. As time has passed I offer different styles of bags and accessories….from past times to modern day. I am trying to meet the desires of all women.
These two beautiful handbags below are Belle Époque Couture - boho, chic style bags with fantastic fabric that takes you back in time. Perfect for a night on the town or fun festivals.
What is your favorite item?
My favorite item seems to be the item I am currently working on! Sometimes I just look at a piece of fabric and start adding embellishments from my “treasure chest”. That is what makes creating a Belle Époque Creations bag so much fun for me. It is kind of like acting or playing fancy dress! Combining textures, colors and feelings to make the perfect bag.
