"Accessoires de Style Français" presents over 30 projects of elegant and colorful accessories (such as brooches, earrings, necklaces...) made with beads, sequins and embroidery threads. Each project has a detailed DIY instruction and drawings for an easy understanding.
The book was published in Japan (and in Japanese) in April 2016 by Tatsumi Publishing House. From May 2018 it will also be available in French (Edition de Saxe).
Special thanks go to Mieko Akima, Kaori Kaburaki, Ayako Hachisu, Masayo Oono and Kaori Maehara for their outstanding work & support.
I also want to thank my team of translators - Nao Lincoln, Masako Yosano and Tomoko Nakayama for their dedicated support (they translated all of the DIY instruction) and their friendship.

✩ Most frequently asked question:
- Is your book available in English or French?
My book is available in Japanese and in French (release May 21, 2018), but I am planning to publish it in English in the future. Stay tuned!
- Is your book suitable if I can’t read or understand Japanese?
This is quite difficult to guess, but I would say that some projects (such as the camellia brooch p.42) may be easier than others to understand even if you don’t speak or read Japanese, with the help of the photos.
- Are the sketches easy to understand?
I believe that my sketches are easy to understand. Feel free to get in touch with me via email - marie[at]mariemaglaque[dot]com - or on my Facebook page.
✩ Template of the camellia brooch - DIY project p.42 in the book
We have realised that the template of the camellia brooch (p.42) is missing in the first print of the Japanese edition of the book.
