What is your design philosophy?
Having a jewelry background, I wanted to create evening bags that would stand out next to an exquisite piece of jewelry. So I approach each design as creating a work of art, a unique statement.
What makes your bags unique?
Every minaudiere is limited edition and hand-made. Each bag is set with jewelry quality precious stones and diamonds. Ocie only uses the finest materials, including sterling silver, enamel, alligator, python and stingray.
Do you change your silhouettes and materials every season?

Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpel
