Our Illuminated Artisan Of The Month is Ariana Boussard-Reifel. See her effortless approach at merging ancient tribalism with sculptural modernism! Read more below from ali...
We have recently loved finding this beautiful collection and have a firm appreciation for the intention behind her pieces and the thoughtfullness in which she chooses to run her business. Ariana explains this beautifully below:
“Ariana’s namesake collection is jewelry, inspired by the ancient and reimagined for modern life. Ariana’s background as a fine artist merges with her deep understanding of ethnographic jewelry (which is shared through her shop Marteau) for a design sensibility that merges sculptural modernism with ancient tribalism. This jewelry is born from a sense of wanderlust, blending tradition with exploration.
All our designs are produced by hand using sustainable and ethical practices in New York City. We make every effort to use only vintage and recycled materials, used tools, carbon-neutral shipping and living wage production, as well as a 1% for the earth donation at the end of the year and a 20% charitable donation for the holiday season. In this crucial time we firmly believe that our voice as citizens and humans must merge with our creative and business endeavors and we merge our ethics with our commerce on all platforms.”
I hope you love her collection as much as we do!
