Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Jewellery by Marival Designs


Winter in Canada!

Short days and cold weather heralds the changed landscape and seasonal colours that nature showcases in winter. Dark emerald greens of the conifir trees mix with muted shades of reds and purples on berry bushes, and forgotten golden seed pods on sleeping grasses. Some determined deciduous leaves in their colours of caramel and chocolate still hang on to wispy branches as the snow falls from grey-white clouds.

Small animals and birds continue to dart here and there, rummaging for food for the worst days of winter. If it's mild, they will continue to play and forage in the sparkling snow, and will hide from stormy weather in the great cedars and blue spruce which protect them.

Winter in Canada - a beautiful 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.
