About

Jewellery handcrafted by Minicyn from her little atelier in Paris, Montmartre 18eme.

An expatriate from the antipodean now residing in France. Her collections are traditionally handcrafted personally by herself from her atelier in the charming 18th district of Montmartre in Paris, France. Visits are welcomed through appointments.

Previously a Creative Director, Graphic Designer/Illustrator in print publishing industry – a career spanning 15 years focusing mainly in non-profit arenas; is now re-pursuing her first love affair in silver-smithing. Her Diploma in contemporary jewelry was also completed back in the early nineties in 'Aotearoa' Auckland, New Zealand.

All her designs are all hand-constructed meticulously from precious metals sourced from ethical suppliers - locally whenever possible. Recycle packaging is always a must whereby presentation is never compromised.

Just so you know, 95% of the sterling silver used is Eco-friendly
sourced from a Paris foundry, circa 1800(http://www.simp-paris.fr/). Be
confident, knowing that your piece/s avoids invasive environmental
mining by instead re-using existing precious metals – be proud to
support this movement, join her damn it!
