What does Balader mean?
In French it means to wander.
Why choose such a difficult word to pronounce?
Well, that word holds special meaning for me. It is how I found all of my favorite spots while living in Paris and how I continue to find new treasured spots.
Why make jewelry?
I have been making jewelry since I was a little girl. When I make jewelry nothing else around me matters. It becomes a kind of meditation.
What type of jewelry do you create?
I try to keep it simple. I want people to be able to pair Miss Balader items with their existing jewelry for a timeless look.
Who is behind Miss Balader?
