Welcome To Le chien noir jewelry


About le chien noir

Carla Straessle first picked up a torch in the late ‘70s while living in France. In spite of a detour to a career as a writer and editor, Carla’s first love was always making jewelry. The first class she took was in a dark, dingy basement studio in an old building in Paris. She was smitten.


about the process

Everything you find at Le Chien Noir Jewelry is designed and meticulously handmade by Carla, using traditional metalsmithing techniques and tools, along with a few modern additions.
