Écrin des muses

Posted by Kate Hubley on March 18, 2014 in

A collection of fine jewelry inspired by 5 passionate Montreal women

I am so proud and excited to share my latest project with you – Écrin des muses (The Muses’ Jewel Box).

Over the next few months, I will be creating a custom-designed piece of jewelry for five of Montreal’s most adored fashion influencers and bloggers. They are such vibrant and engaging women – they’re my muses – inspiring a collection that reflects their individual personalities, as well as the beauty of Quebec.

These women shimmer with life and spending time with them sparked so much magic and inspiration for my creations.

Each piece will also incorporate an element of Quebec. It could be a stone, inspiration from nature, culture or architecture… A wonderful creative challenge.

Without further ado, here is the bevy of bloggers involved the project (introduced in the order we met up.)
