Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Jewellery by Marival Designs


Winter is here in Canada!

Days are short and cold. The hazy sun, weaker in its efforts to give warmth, throws long gray shadows onto the wintery landscape. The Canadian winter is here.....

With the winter come the evergreen colours! The waning pale sun allows conifers, pines, spruce and cedar trees to bring forth their vibrant green foliage which now blend like a painter's brush with stalks of golden brown grasses, red and burgundy berries, dried ochre sedum, and black seed pods everywhere.

Winter's cold air is dominated by the songs of chickadees, purple finches, cardinals, junkos and blue jays. These hardy birds enjoy dancing on the snowfilled branches while they watch the squirrels and chimpmunks frolick for food under the white carpet of snow.

The Canadian winter - an amazing time of year!

Just like nature, handcrafted jewellery can come in the most amazing combination of colours and materials.

Discover our Marival Designs' Rustic & Leather Collection ... inspired by the land, water and sky elements found in this beautiful part of the world - the Grand River valley in southwestern Ontario.

Using metals such as silver and copper, organics such as leather, and natural stones such as pearls and gemstones, some which are common to the area, the Rustic & Leather Collection appeals to those who enjoy the many delights of nature.

Many of these pieces are one of a kind and may have sold at shows. However if you notice a style online that you like, please email me and, if the piece is sold, I would be delighted to work with you to custom make your own personal piece.

Or, if you have a design in mind that is your own, please contact me and we can work together to create a special artisan piece.

Many designs have found homes all over the world - Australia, India, Scotland, Hungary, China, and many locations in the US and Canada.

I provide safe, secure purchases via email using PayPal, or e-transfer. If you live nearby in Southern Ontario, I'd love to meet you! In that case, personal cheque or cash is also acceptable.
