The woman-led business, Maison de Camille, began during the 2020 Pandemic. As a retired interior designer, I found myself desperate for a creative outlet during our repeated quarantines. I was drawn to the meditative medium of jewellery making that quickly became a bright spot in those long, dark days. Necklaces soon took over our home office and the idea of an online shop began to take seed.
My passion for travel, especially to France, inspires my designs and flows into each meticulously handcrafted piece. Our beloved dog, Lily Camille (and shop name inspiration!) keeps me company as I design and create jewellery in our Vancouver, Canada workshop. I hope you enjoy wearing our pieces as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them for you.

A very sad post script to be added is that our beloved Lily Camille sadly passed in September, 2022 after an exceptionally long 10+ year-life for a Bernese Mountain Dog. What an immense hole in our hearts she has left behind, but also the greatest memories and love a dog could ever give.
