From Marrakesh with love

A new shipment of Berber beads has arrived! It comes straight from Marrakesh. The beads are traditional Berber work made by local artisans. In my experience, they are quite difficult to find either online or in Paris.

Luckily, I have my very own distribution channel: as I have mentioned before, I know a girl.

I can’t wait to make new pieces of jewellery with those!

Whatever I make is likely to be quite successful, too; whenever I post one on my shop, it sells within a few weeks. I guess it shows Moroccan crafts needs more attention.

I fear the day I will go to Marrakesh myself. I can’t be held responsible for what I might buy when I step foot in that bead shop.


— Advertising digression, as a thank-you to my dear distribution channel —

If you fancy getting a feel of Morocco without travelling too far, try spending a night or two in Kerity’s Riad! It is a nice Bed and Breakfast with lovely owners, traditional hammam and argan oil massages, tasty moroccan food made with local products and comfortable rooms… on Brittany’s seashore.

By complete coincidence, some of my jewellery is also for sale there!
