Tressie Jordan, a well-traveled mixed media artist whose no stranger to the sewing machine—and the luxury textile industry, has an eye for design and color—specifically with antique textile and vintage jewelry. She is known for her handcrafted dolls (stand in line—there’s a waiting list). While her creative streak began with sewing, she has also been painting for many years. Sewing since she was six years old, she brings her imagination to life with each stitch of fabric.
After twenty years of working for many leading companies in the high-end textile industry, she has a massive collection of gorgeous samples. Along with her love for collecting vintage material, you could find Tressie at her studio sewing or thrifting along the coast of Florida for collectible hand-selected jewelry and buttons to accompany and bedazzle her dolls.
From time to time, Tressie will incorporate custom beads she creates out of clay. Then, adding playfulness with her beautiful embellishments, each doll develops a character Tressie will describe—as she sees it- and will hand write a story for each doll. Her collection of dolls is displayed in 7 U.S. Galleries, with clients expanding to Europe.
Tressie’s favorite travel destination is Asia, where most of her inspiration comes from her travels and interests in other cultures. But, while different customs have inspired her dolls, it has also influenced the interior design of her newly transformed Bed and Breakfast—Maison de Lionne—in downtown Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Tressie’s eye for detail is impactful for a serene feel, and every item she chose for her four-bedroom home has character and mystery---something that makes a place a wonderment to be discovered.
Maison de Lionne is located on the magical Teche Bayou and is vibrant and relaxing, with walls cool in color, making one’s stay a true getaway. It is no wonder Tressie’s one-of-a-kind dolls have good juju!
