As a journalist, I have written a lot about France and the French. Now I am moving away from reporting and instead making handbags and jewelry. This, too, is very informed by my deep love of France. Even the name of the line—Hexagon—is a nickname for my second country. Here’s a piece from the debut season of the collection. Everything at Hexagon is made of repurposed vintage and contemporary materials. Upcycling, to use the latest expression for it.
So far the line is only sold in Los Angeles boutiques, but the Etsy shop will be updated with new items every week or so.
