About marcgounard

On Etsy since 2008

All my work is unique, fabricated by myself in my tiny studio. Please email me with your ideas for custom orders, thanks.

I did study engineering but my heart was always in art. Water color, carving wood, ceramic, collages were always present as a kid. Those passions grew in tandem with my love with sailing. As a young boy growing up in north Africa I learned sailing and as a teenager I started to sail to other countries during the summer holidays.
Years later I built my home, a cruising catamaran and took my wife and two kids on a dream voyage around the blue planet. My jewelry studio on board is tiny but it allows me to fabricate all my work.
All my work is one of a kind. I do not cast any piece, all are fabricated by myself.
Custom orders are welcome,I will send you photos of sketchs, pebbles, gems, pearls so we can design a new piece for you or someone you love.
