Marie Gilvey's Profile
I grew up in a little town called Bastia; which is located on the island of Corsica. Corsica is rich in beauty from its green granite and white sand beaches to its snow-capped mountains—all only minutes away from each other by car. On a warm summer day, the scent of the maquis fills the air and it is just wonderful. A "maquis", pronounced mah-key is low growing green leaf plant that covers the mountainsides. It is sort of like a shrub with a musk-like scent.
Nicknamed "the island of beauty," it is from this natural wonder that I draw my inspiration for designing bead jewelry.
Visit my main website (www.corsecrafts.com) and view a slide show and video for a small taste of what Corsica looks like.
I really enjoy making jewelry because it is a way to unwind from my full-time job. I especially love making a sale…
