Kickstarter Project - A Chainmaille Wedding Dress

Well, initiated by 2 contemporary jewelers, Brune Boyer and Benjamin Lignel, the "Dit du Bijou", or what I'll allow myself to freely translate to sort of mean "Talk on jewelry" is a monthly get together, generally at a typical small and charming parisian restaurant to talk about jewelry first then have a bite to eat. Anyone interested in jewelry near or far, is invited.

This Sunday, March 18th will mark the 16th edition of the "Dit Du Bijou" and for…
