When you think of 'April', what do you think first?
Famous for April...
In the heart of Beaujolais, in the delightful village of Oingt, I invite you to discover my graceful and poetic world of creation born nearly ten years ago. You will find "graphic" jewelry, whose inspiration is drawn essentially from nature, whose colors, patterns and textures are infinite. I also offer a range of customizable and interchangeable jewels, that you can transform in a click to suit your taste, your humor, the occasion and your attires.
Bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, brooches and cufflinks ... Manò Factò is a range of costume jewelery made of non-allergenic metals, wood, leather and slate. The interchangeable jewelry has a central piece that consists of an image sealed under a glass cabochon that is 4 / 5mm thick, creating a magnifying glass effect. Each image is printed on special paper with pigment and resin-based inks, that are waterproof and photo-stable, meaning that they will not fade, even if left in sunlight for years, contrary to classic inkjet.
I create unique illustrations, vintage or modern, ethnic or floral, symbolic or abstract ... and sometimes, in order to offer a different creative universe, I work with the talent of other artists. At Manò Factò, you will most certainly find a theme that suits your style.
Each piece I create, is the result of a meticulous process that begins with the design of a collection, then the graphic creation on my computer (photos, textures, vector images, drawings, watercolors, all using Photoshop and Illustrator ...) then the selection of the materials, then the application of the graphics on their various media and finally the mounting and finishing touches. All for an artisanal and uniquely bespoke result.
My point of view is that, beyond the aesthetics of the piece, it should create an emotion, generate a reaction, bring poetry into your daily life, but essentially, express your personality.
When you wear a Manò Factò creation, you share your style, your sensitivity and your story for the delight of the people and the universe that surrounds you.
I hope that you will take great pleasure in visiting my online store, and if you are lucky enough to be visiting this beautiful region of the Beaujolais, come visit me in my shop in the beautiful village of Oingt (69620) I'd be happy in any case to meet you in real life or virtually - I'm sure it will be the beginning of a beautiful story - and a chance to make a piece of jewelry especially for you!
