Owner and artist Wendy Mignot resides in Seaside, Florida along with her husband Jean-Noel and their two children Violeta and Zachary.
Wendy began designing and creating her one of a kind pearl and leather jewelry along with her husband Jean-Noel in 1994. At that time, they lived on their sailboat in the Caribbean, often traveling to exotic ports of call all over the world selling their art. Their Gypsy lifestyle landed them in Seaside where they opened Cafe Rendez-vous and then the beautiful art gallery La Vie Est Belle.
La Vie Est Belle showcases several renowned local artists along with a collection of authentic and ancient ship wreck coins. All of Wendy's pearl, shell and leather jewelry are made with Tahitian, South Sea and Fresh water cultured pearls, which have been hand drilled and strung on hand rolled quality leather.
