Handcrafted Originals

Custom Designed Jewellery by Marival Designs


Autumn in Canada - a time of year that showcases our beautiful fall colours from coast to coast!

Days are getting shorter and cooler and the sun's rays give increasing dappled light onto a landscape that is mature from summer's activities. The Canadian fall is here.....

A wide variety of glorious autumn perennials are still plentiful. Black-eyed susans, echinacheas, sedums, and crysanthemums host colours of deep yellows, oranges, white and purples. Grasses are now at their peak with their wavy fronds which attract all sorts of insects, butterflies and small birds, some of which are preparaing for a migratory journey to the south.....

It's busy time for squirrels and chipmunks as they harvest seeds, nuts and berries for the long winter ahead. Soon nest building for those who sleep most of the winter!

The Canadian autumn - 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 & Stone 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 & Stone Collection appeals to those who enjoy the many delights of nature.

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!
