About

Sharing my French upbringing through my creations.

I was sitting at a local bookstore, in the winter of 08 starring at all the business magazines, looking for directions for an online craft market, I could join.

I prayed for direction and pick one up. Here, was a list of all the best new entrepreneurs for 07. That is how I found Etsy. I knew right then and there, that Etsy was exactly what I was looking for and what I needed to reach my dream of staying home with my three children, while having the wonderful joy of selling what I am creating, all over the world!!

I love jewelry. I was especially interested in the making of them. I am a very curious person and love to found out how things work.

So, I purchased a "how to make your own jewelry book" and self taught myself the techniques. My mind was going a mile a minute with all the designs coming out of my head!!

Creating jewelry allows me do to something I absolutely love : using something not for the way it was created but for so much more that it can be !

From my mom, I was introduced to colors. She was a florist in Paris for many years and loves mixing the colors in bouquets and presentations… She taught me to see beyond, and to take the time to really look at a flower and the changes of colors on just one petal! That is another thing, I discovered about me : mixing the colors in unexpected ways.
I feel as if I am painting using beads and/or fabrics.
It is also the rebellious side of me coming out ! Refusing to do to the expected and instead like Robert Frost wrote in his poem " take the road less traveled" !

Adding on to that, from my grand-parents, I received a profound attachment to the past and a deep respect of our freedom and the suffering it costs them all.
When I buy buttons, crystals, laces, beads from an antique store I feel a connection, a life line of sort.
Especially now, since my last grand-parent past away at the age of 90.
Our past explains where we came from and our stories and it is wonderful to redirect those past treasures into our present and future while also recycling by repurposing them.
Being ecofriendly is very important to me.

That is why in my shop, All my creations are one of a kind!

I will never stop creating, I found myself in it ! This is my dream, my retirement, my hobby, my inspirations, in short my life line!

I am so glad Etsy came to life:)

Merci ! Magali

Bienvenue to my creative space ! I LOVE creating, from a memory (my childhood in Paris or the South of france) a feeling ( bold, goofy, nostalgic...) or an original color combination!

Thank you for your support!
En revoir!
