I am Lucie Jolicoeur, the artisan behind these colourful jewelry pieces.
I've been making my own glass beads using a torch (lampwork) for several years now. I rent another artisan's workshop from time to time... A day at the torch always flies by!
In 2017, I studied earthenware applied to jewelry with fabulous ceramist France Goneau, at École de Joaillerie de Montréal. On my kitchen counter, I create, glaze and fire my ceramic pendants in a special kiln.
I travel the world (and the web) to find unique materials for my creations: authentic Murano glass beads in Venice, vintage beads from an American collector, semi-precious stones from local trusted suppliers...
Why I do this
A few years ago, I decided to work part-time in my main job as a UX specialist. Creating jewelry allows me to play around freely with shapes, colours and textures. I strive to create robust, comfortable, easy to wear (as well as pretty!) jewelry pieces.
And the animals?
I am transitioning towards a vegan lifestyle, so are my products! I research, test and use alternatives to animal leather, like Piñatex (made from pineapple leaves), cork, cactus and mango leather.
Use the "Vegan products" filter to see all my 100% cruelty-free products. I can replace any animal leather cords in the remaining products with a cork cord.
- I create jewelry upon request.
- I can repair most jewelry pieces that don't involve welding, gold or silver settings.
Email me your special requests at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there!
