Custom Designed Original Accessories by Marival Designs
Winter in Canada - a time of year that showcases our beautiful winter colours from coast to coast!
Days are short and cold and the sun's rays often find themselves behind laden clouds that bring white snowflakes onto a landscape that has fallen asleep for the next few months. The Canadian winter is here.....
However a wide variety of vibrant colours still dot the countryside and the times the sun does peak out there are glorious versions of golds, browns and evergreens.
Squirrels and chipmunks have harvested seeds, nuts and ripe red berries for the long winter ahead. Many have built strong warm nests for blustery sleet and winds! Small birds like chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, and junkos line up at local birdfeeders or take cover in emerald green fir branches.
The Canadian winter - an amazing time of year!
Just like nature, handmade accessories can come in the most amazing combination of colours and materials.
Discover our Marival Designs' Stones & Yarn Collection ... inspired by the land, water and sky elements found in this beautiful part of the world - the Grand River valley in southwestern Ontario.
The Collection appeals to those who enjoy the many delights of nature. Using special looped yarns made from super soft and plush polyester or wool blends, you will discover scarves and hats to keep you warm and cozy. Jewellery is made from metals such as silver and copper and natural stones such as pearls and gemstones, some which are common to the area.
