Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Jewellery by Marival Designs


Early Winter in Canada!

A deep chill settles in the evenings and short days are upon us with cold crisp weather making its daily appearance. A season of  dormant slumber and whiteness follows our glorious Canadian fall. We are grateful for evergreens that give us year round emerald hues and nearby brushes and vines still have dark red currents and berry clusters, which provide food for small birds, squirrels and chipmunks.

Even the decaying grasses paint the landscape with gold and bronze. Most days are gray and overcast, the winds have removed leaves from deciduous trees and white snowfakes dust the ground. Soon we will be in the depths of winter.

Early Winter in Canada - a transitional time of year!

Just like nature, handcrafted jewellery can come in the most amazing combinations or 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.

Thank you!
