Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Jewellery by Marival Designs


A time of renewal and rebirth - SPRING is here in Canada!

Days are warmer and longer and the sun, breaking through its long winter hibernation, throws welcome sparking rays of light onto a newly emerging landscape. The Canadian spring is here.....

With the spring come tiny colourful buds of early flowers like white snowdrops and purple crocuses. The warming lemon yellow sun allows the rapid growth of ground cover and grass which burst forth with their vibrant green and gold foliage everywhere.

Chickadees, purple finches, cardinals, junkos and blue jays are now joined by robins, goldfinches, grackles and migratory songbirds coming back from a southern journey to spend time nesting and raising a family. Their songs fill the air with spring happiness.

The Canadian spring - 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.

Due to the unprecedented worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, Marival Designs regretfully will not be producing a Stratford Festival Theatre Shakespeare Charms Collection in 2020. This was a joint decision by all involved. We would like to recognize all of you who have purchased charms over the last 9 years - THANK YOU!

{The themed antique bronze charms represent the annual offering of plays and musicals. These charms by Marival Designs are only available at the Stratford Festival.}
