Very stylish. I love the hanging chains. Because of the size will wear on jacket, I think it will be too large to wear on the lapel of a jacket, but will look great worn on the side of a jacket near the lapel. Satisfied with purchase.

Welcome to Capsule!!!

Véronique was born in Sherbrooke, where she stood out very early in visual arts and theater. She graduated in Graphic Design in Sherbrooke, and in Props-Scenography at the National Theatre School of Canada in Montreal. She worked as a Props Maker on big productions at Cirque du soleil for 8 years and had the chance to travel around the world with the circus. Back in Montreal, she worked on the set and costumes for X-Men movies and opened Capsule in 2012.
Granddaughter of a watchmaker, she grew up around dozens of clocks ringing one after the other, scrutinized under the magnifier. She often asked for broken ones to play with the pieces inside. It was natural for her to recycle these pieces of time to make jewelry. She found great inspiration with the Victorian era and the Steampunk movement and spent her creativity overflow by making jewellery, costume accessories, decorations and sculptures using cogs, antique watch parts, light bulbs, cruelty free bones, lace and leather.

Granddaughter of a watchmaker, Veronique grew up around dozens of clocks ringing one after the other and spare spars scrutinized under the magnifying glass. It was natural for her to create Jewellery and sculptures with clock and watch parts.
Granddaughter of a watch and clock maker, I was fascinated by the way he was meticulous with all these tiny watch parts. I find them beautiful and thought they should be seen. I'm also a big fan of repairing things when they break instead of throwing them in the garbage, to recycle them into beautiful objects. Thats why it was natural for me to start making jewelry with watch parts. There's a little bit of my grandfather in them!
