Eco-jewelry in the making

My name's Valerie and I hope you like my jewelry!

I started mingling with the eco-fashion side of the industry about 10 years ago. From an interest to a hobby, it became a passion. After a few classes in jewelry making, and trying lots of different styles and media, I eventually started making jewelry out of venice lace and guipure, for it's feminine, elegant and refined style.

As you will browse through my shop, you will find I like to add noble elements to my designs, like gemstone, charms, freshwater pearls amd Swarovski crystals, to make my jewelry unique. I love to handmake my jewelry in limited editions, it makes it that much more special for all my customers, who will (most probably) not ever meet someone else with the exact same eco-necklace or earrings!

As much as possible, I integrate recycled or upcycled materials in my jewelry, but also in my packaging. I eco-wrap all my jewelry in used sewing pattern paper and hand pick a nice vintage ribbon to go with it! We try as much as possible to use eco-mailing enveloppes to make our items as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible.

Additional policies and FAQs
Our vintage jewelry scale:

Very good condition
- Looks like brand new and lightly worn or used
- No trace of wear

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want a custom piece (longer or shorter chain, different color ear hooks, etc..) Special orders are not available for exchange or refund.

I'd be delighted to do wholesale. Contact me for a price list. Know that I do limited edition models, as I get my main material, lace and leather, in limited quantity.

Be aware that the guipure lace is a very delicate matter. We suggest you lay flat your necklace, your earrings or your bracelet when you store it. This will prevent excessive pulling on the lace.

If the lace was stained due to excessive sweating, or from chemicals in your makeup or your perfume, gently rub the stain with a damp cloth as soon as possible.
