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.
