Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Original Accessories by Marival Designs


Winter in Canada - our usual colourful landscape is covered in a white blanket of snow that softens and quiets the horizon.

Days are short - cold and crisp, sometimes wet and foggy, and the pale yellow sun tries so hard to peek through hazy grey blue skies leaden with clouds. Snow falls. Wind blows. The Canadian winter is here.....

We see dark green foliage of evergreens that contiue to show their colours year round. We smell the fallen decaying leaves of taupe and brown that surround us on damp ground. Small trees and bushes showcase their red and purple berries for birds and smalll animals that need food during the winter ahead.

Nature is still alive in the winter, and it's enjoyed by those who don't hide away. We hear the chittering of squirrels and soft songs of finches, junkos, cardinals and sparrows as they collect seeds and fallen fruits.

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' Spin & Stones 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. Pillows are a fun decorative home item, as are holiday wreaths or Christmas trees. 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.
