About

Welcome and Bienvenue!

I'm living in France on the West coast, in South Brittany. I live with my husband and our cat in an old house that we're renovating with a pocket garden by the sea.

I've been mostly inspired by two persons, Marie and Maria, my two grand-mothers, who were talented needlecraft persons. Embroidery, knitting, crocheting, sewing were their fields.

I make mostly one-of-a-kind pieces combining vintage elements with artisan made pieces by me in my studio or artisan made elements crafted by talented ceramists.
I love to be continually experiencing and improving.

If you read french, I was featured in the Etsy France blog on march 2013

I'm fond of curiosities and love flea markets where I dig for treasures for hours. I clean and cherish these vintage finds to get introduced to their particulars before mixing them in my jewelry pieces. I love to imagine their history, the tales they're whispering

On my website, you'll find my blog where I'm posting about my ongoing projects and a gallery of a selection of my jewelry pieces.
