If the designer, Kande Hall of French Kande Jewelry had never visited a flea market in Paris, France, it's likely this product line may never have been made. The magic of the intriguing medallions Kande found is the inspiration behind her jewelry. Kande discovered that the medallions are from the 1960s and represent businesses like champagne houses in France. She also incorporates the use of the bee in her designs representing the importance of Napoleon Bonaparte in French history. The bee design has come down in history from being embroidered in Napoleon’s coronation robe to being found in the fabric of women’s apparel to handbags, jewelry, pillows, and even footwear. French Kande is designed in El Segundo, California.
