About

A little bit scientific, and a little bit magical too

“Of the substances formed in the ground, some are made of water and some of earth. The metals come from water; from earth come stones. As the metals have been discussed in another place, let us now speak about the stones.” — Theophrastus, On Stones

THEO is a collection of gemstone bracelets, handmade in Quebec City, Canada. I select fascinating natural stones (no dyes or man-made stones) and turn them into meaningful accessories with supplies sourced from other Etsy shops all around Canada. I am both passionate about the science of minerals and stones and drawn to their spiritual link to nature. That’s why THEO is a little bit scientific, and a little bit magical too.

My name is Marjorie, I am a geological engineering student at Université Laval and I am the proud owner of THEO. After studying and working as an art director in the advertising industry for more than a decade, I wished to pursue a scientific career and enrolled back in college. As my field of study is more on the practical side, I’ve created THEO as way to share my admiration for the aesthetics of rocks. Isn’t nature the greatest designer?

Theophrastus (c. 371 – c. 287 BC) was a Greek philosopher and naturalist. Among others, from his treatise On Stones was to emerge the science of mineralogy, and ultimately geology.
