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?
