New to the Boutique: Bisjoux

We are excited to introduce Bisjoux to the store!  Bisjoux jewelry was founded by Karin Wilzig, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology.  Born in Belgium and raised in New York, Karin's interest in art started at an early age.  Through the years, she has applied her skills through all mediums from paint to photography.  It was only recently that she turned her passions to the art of jewelry design.


Karin wanted to create a line that represents the diversity in society. She did not want to follow trends.  Rather, she wanted to create pieces that would not only inspire her but also inspire her clients and customers.  By adding classic touches, tribal twists and modernistic forms, Karin hoped to create something that stands out from the rest, catches your interest, sparks your creative side and inspires your soul to glow.  With the debut of her eponymous collection for Bisjoux jewelry, Karin has certainly delivered on her promise!

Bisjoux

Bisjoux has garnered attention from notable fashion press including Creem, Nakid, Bifurc, Lucy's, The Angle, Vulkan, Flawless and Institute.  Pieces have also been featured on celebrities such as Lady Gaga.  From concept to finished product, all Bisjoux pieces are handcrafted to give them more soul.  Explore our curated selection of Bisjoux jewelry.  We can't wait to see how you style your pieces from this unique and modernistic line and as always, don't forget to share your pictures with us on Instagram or Facebook!
