rebecca dautremer

This is one of my all time favorite necklaces! It's so simple yet so beautiful, that i almost wear it daily lately! Despite the "it goes with everything" factor, i'm also in love with the fact that the illustration of the red princess is taken from one the most lovely children's books around! The Princesses book by Rebecca Dautremer. Not only does she illustrate the books, she also writes the stories along with her husband Taï-Marc Lethanh!
She has also written Cyranno and the L'amoureaux!
If you don't know her but you're in love with children's illustration (like moi!) you should definitely go and search her name around the bookstores!
You'll fall in love, too!

  1. thats an amazing necklace!!! i love her illustrations!!! they are very inspiring!!!!!!

  2. I recently came upon a Greek girl on MySpace who was selling jewelery like this one, probably the same one who made this necklace. Although I like it (it is a pretty piece of jewelery indeed) I was furious with her for not giving any credit to Rebecca Dautremer. It was like if she was implying that all of the design, including the illustration, was hers. Moreover, she was also selling jewelery made with illustrations by one other Greek illustrator, who I happen to know personally. Again, with no permission or even credit.
    If she just made the jewelery as a hobby, for her to wear only, I would be more sympathetic of her plagiarism, but she is making money out of other people's talent and this is wrong.

    (Sorry if my comment is kinda negative, I have nothing against you wearing this necklace, and Rebecca's work is amazing indeed, but stealing other people's creative work is something I feel very strongly about.)

  3. uperoxo outfit kai to agapw auto to koliedaki ontws oses fores se exw dei to forouses !!!

  4. @lopi: i agree with you about stealing other people's work and about creative rights and that's why i made this post that is half dedicated to the necklace and half dedicated to Rebecca Dautremer herself!
    if you can,please send me an e-mail of that girl's myspace. i'm just curious to see what you're talking about.
