From our hilltop cottage in an Australian country village the 'by marie-nicole' handcrafted wares continue to be valued across the globe thanks to this little Etsy store...

Keeping minimal waste practices, small scale production of quality crafted products & artisan techniques alive... and most importantly appreciated in this modern day society consumed by cheap mass production. The waves of change are slowly taking affect... as an artisan earning a living through practising what I truly believe in, I see it first hand every time I receive an order from a conscious consumer & a message of gratitude when they receive their one of a kind item created with passion and respect for our earth and global community.

Old woollen blankets and kangaroo leather offcuts add character to my products and form the basis of my range. I have always managed to see potential in something old or an item that would ordinarily be destined for the rubbish heap. The more we throw out and replace the more we diminish our resources unnecessarily. Artisan techniques are not about mass production they are about passion, detail and beauty, uniqueness, incorporating these into functional items while enhancing our everyday living experience... this is what leads me create the products that I do.

I am inspired to preserve the natural beauty that surrounds us and encourage people to shop with consideration for our environment and our future by sustaining craftmanship skills that enable us to take care of ourselves and not rely so heavily on a supply chain to provide us with our needs. 

So many beautiful hearted people enter my world through my Etsy store & Artisan markets and for that I am truly grateful. xx

First and foremost, I LOVE Marie-Nicole products! I have purchased many items over the past few years and I am looking forward to see what new surprises show up in the years to come. This clutch is beyond beautiful. The level of detail is just awesome and I love the dark brown colour and smell of the leather. It is absolutely gorgeous and matches pretty much any outfit. There is plenty of room for my phone, keys, the adorable little matching purse and some other little things. Perfect for everyday use and for any occasion. THANK YOU for shipping this out so quickly. I cannot wait to show it off. :O)

What a cool, one-of-a-kind ukulele case! My husband is going to love it! Marie-Nicole was wonderful to work with. She let me pick the blanket and made the case exactly as I envisioned it. I was so excited when it arrived here all the way from her artist's studio in Australia! Can't wait to give it to my husband for our anniversary! Thank you Marie-Nicole!!!

{day dream} During today's product shoot, on yet another chilly winters day, I was imagining I was on an expedition shooting for National Geographic in some remote & inspiring location... gotta do whatever it takes to detract from feeling cold!
After a cold, wet & grey week of working with the roller doors closed to maintain a little warmth in my studio shed, I'm lapping up every bit of natural light & the occasional burst of sunshine that streams in through this little window today!

About

Rescued & Repurposed

In my previous life as a portrait photographer I strived to capture the beauty of living through my lens, but these days as a mother of two with a passion for sustainability, I focus on handcrafting beautiful products for others to enjoy amidst their everyday activities.

My long time love of rescuing and repurposing an item with a past life, a hidden story or simply something that would ordinarily be destined for the rubbish heap... along with the desire to be able to strum a tune on my guitar with my family while immersing ourselves in the joys of our rural location, sitting out on our verandah at the end of a productive day filled with cooking up a storm, tending to our feathered and furry pets or veggie patch... but most of all to be able to share my adventure filled creative journey with my family, rather than always having to leave them behind while venturing off to capture the beauty in other people's lives... lead me to draw from skills learned growing up in a resourceful family, as well as those developed through formal education, experimentation, reading and asking many questions of other artisans with great experience in their field.

This is how 'by marie-nicole' was born and continues to grow, with my family in tow!
