Le shipping était très rapide et les boucles d'oreilles sont absolument magnifiques et surtout elles sont faites de matériaux recyclés! Je les adore!

Want to know a little about the creator?

.tomate d’épingles. literally means “tomato pincushion”; it’s a pun, in French, because the word pincushion (pelotte) and the word tomato (tomate) kind of sound alike. My first jewelry line was made out of buttons and sewing notions, so the pincushion felt just right.

I’ve loved creating as far as I can remember. My mom encouraged me to do all forms of arts, when I was a kid. She was a very crafty woman herself, knitting, sewing, creating fabric and cardboard doll houses, making salty play dough I would love to eat almost as much as I would love to sculpt. She still encourages me in all my endeavors, and I still love to create things … although I don’t eat play dough anymore.

My creative process is almost as eclectic as my collections. I’ve always been fascinated with tribal jewelry. I’m engrossed in traditional arts and crafts techniques, like weaving for example. But i am also a huge fan of all things modern and minimal. I try to think outside the box as much as I can. Which makes my creations a very personal take on traditional techniques, stripped down to their bare minimum, and made out of alternative materials.

En français?
Un peu punk, un peu tribal, 100% éthique. Nous sommes convaincues que la mode peut être à la fois unisexe, design, et tendance.

Combinant des techniques traditionnelles et des matériaux alternatifs, .tomate d'épingles. est un projet de bijoux éthiques et uniques pour hommes et femmes. Fondé en 2006, nos bijoux ont parus dans le magazine VOGUE!

Nous voulons révolutionner votre façon de voir la mode, tout simplement. Intrigués? Jetez un coup d'oeil à nos collections ici www.tomatedepingles.ca
