Home : Artists : Silk Bijoux
Silk Bijoux, which means Silk Jewels in French, was born from the love and enthusiasm that Jan and Nicole had for silk painting. At the beginning of 1988, these artists brought their special talents and multicultural backgrounds together to create a unique experience in wearable art to stores throughout the United States and the world.
Silk painting is an ancient art form of oriental origin. In the early part of the twentieth century, the technique of silk painting was brought to western Europe by Russian artists fleeing the Revolution. France soon developed a reputation for producing the finest silk dyes which are still in demand today.
