Van Den Abeele
Van Den Abeele is a beautiful jewellery label founded by Delphine who was born and raised in Paris’ 18th district. Both her neighbourhood and Montmartre were her playground as she grew up – possibly the inspiration of what she now creates – smile.
She always had a creative streak in her and was already drawing her mother’s outfits when she was only 6 years old. It was however when she was 30 and travelling the world with her backpack that her jewellery career began. Starting off by creating a lucky charm cuff-bracelet. Delphine has always worn superstitious talismans – it is this mystical passion combined with her roots that nourishes her creativity.
You will find Van Den Abeele pieces online

Hi, my name is Yvonne, I worked in finance for almost 3 decades. One day I woke up and decided it was time to have a change and turn my hobbies into my profession. Hence the fashion/lifestyle blog www.funkyforty.com was created. That was 8 years ago. Fashion Week Street Style and other photography is also a part of my new profession.
Having a huge passion for fashion and supporting incredible female designers I am super excited at having the opportunity to share a few with you on Ladies Drive – a magazine I have loved since its very beginning.
