Eddera’s designer, Camille, is a French jeweler living in Los Angeles. In 1996, she attended the prestigious Ecole Du Louvre in Paris – the jewelry school of the Louvre. She was one of fifteen students accepted into the program and was fortunate enough to study under Adalbert Smoliar, the head jeweler for Van Cleef and Arpels. Concurrently, she attended the French Institute of Gemology. She graduated in 2000 as a bijoutier-joaillier and a gemologist. While in Paris, Camille worked for Boucheron and Chopard.
After moving to the United States in 2001, Camille was discovered in an elevator by photographer Markus Klinko and began a modeling career. She worked with top photographers such as Ellen Von Unwerth and Robert Maxwell, eventually becoming the face of Noxzema skin care. During this time, she kept making jewelry and developed a distinct style: mixing vintage elements with modern jewels. Friends bought her pieces and asked for more. Personal stylists Lisa Michelle Boyd (Charlize Theron, Diane Kruger, Megan Fox) and Charline Roxborough (Nelly Furtado, Kanye West) began borrowing Camille’s jewelry to complete red carpet outfits.
In January 2009, Camille officially launched her first jewelry line, Eddera. A year later, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel (Sienna Miller, Anne Hathaway, Keira Knightley) asked Camille to create a line of high-end hair accessories. This led to the creation of a series of headbands that have now been seen on Victoria Beckham, Kourtney Kardashian, and many others.
Today, Eddera sells in top boutiques around the world and has been featured in over 100 magazines, including 10 times in Vogue. Eddera fans include First Lady Michelle Obama, Tennis champ Maria Sharapova, Oscar winner Halle Berry, and various Hollywood actresses.
