Hi, I'm Kiki
I'm the creative behind Creole Amour, and I'm a New Orleanian, who's traveled the world living in 8 different countries on 4 continents. I absolutely love learning about new cultures, and I've had amazing experiences like floating in the Dead Sea in Israel, seeing the Northern Lights in Finland, trailing through a forest to a beautiful waterfall in New Zealand, and so much more. I must say that I Iove every travel experience, but living in Antibes in the South of France is somewhere at the top of my list because of New Orleans' deep-rooted connection to France through our history, architecture, and language, not to mention it's beautiful. I even learned French!
I love how important jewelry is to every look, and its ability to make or break a look. I Iove how jewelry can make bold statements and also be a dainty, intimate keepsake that's near and dear to someone's heart.
In 2012, when I started this journey with Creole Amour my only intention was to resale accessories, but quickly changed as I wanted to provide unique and long lasting pieces that can withstand time and a busy life on the go. That led me to research and teach myself jewelry making techniques and the start of using 14k Gold FIlled materials for quality yet affordable jewelry. I'll be honest that it took some gold plated inventory tarnishing before I went back to the drawing board and saw the importance of spending more and using 14k Gold FIlled.
Creole Amour is continuing to grow and evolve to bring the most meaningful and quality pieces to inspire you in more ways than one. I'd love for you to be a part of this journey with me. Follow along on Instagram, and feel free to say hi. I always love to talk with Creole Amour's supporters!
