Jewelry is a poem to your personality, an expressive way to feel good without words. - Petit Désir Fou-

I am a wild heart and gypsy soul! Petit Désir Fou is passion, a steady shoulder that is adventurous and ready to push the boundaries. It is how I dream and plan my designs. Jewelry is that little part of you that you showcase for the world to discover. It’s a poem of your personality, an expressive way to feel good without words. No matter your selection of the moment, it tells a story for others to uncover.

And that is why Petit Désir Fou came about. A small desire, a crazy envy, to own a creation that illustrates a unique you.

I learn every day some new techniques, discover new mediums and I truly love that aspect of what this can bring me to achieve, in order to deliver my one of a kind creation to you folks. I thrive through my craft, to reach a sense of balance. Each piece is an expression of my true self.

I am passionate about jewelry. I love all kinds of styles. There is room for mixing styles, precious metal or mediums. Creating seasonal collections or unique designs often comes from the material I select, the mood of the day, events of the world and inspiration surrounding me.

I enjoy making only one-off! Yes, one of a kind. You are so unique, so why not celebrate that? If you get that heart twinge or that takes-away-your-breath feeling, go for it. It will be an addition to your own collection. Be playful, pair them, and single them out to start a conversation at the office, at a party or simply among friends. Be the unique You. Each of my pieces is designed to help you to express and identify yourself as a person of style, culture, and awareness.

I will admit that I am attracted to certain varieties of stones. Blue, in its many shades, is my favorite color to work with. As an artist, we set up some challenges, goals, and achievements. Working with greens, reds, and browns is one of my challenges. A little further down I've shared some of the stones I choose for their properties.

In my opinion, every occasion calls for a fine piece of jewelry and the jewelry does not always have to represent the occasion but your connection with the event.

All of my products are nickel and lead-free. As some people have sensitive skin, I offer options as much as I can to enable them to wear my products.

Supporting small handmade business is important to me. As part of an artistic community, I do purchase articles from artist friends and I do list the name of the artist. It is an important support.

So thank you so very much for stopping by my shop, viewing, liking my work in constant evolution and even more to You that will make a new home for one of my creations.

Avec amour et passion from my Petit Désir Fou to Yours!

Geneviève!
