About Bijoux Malou

Bijoux Malou is a home based shop in which you can buy small handmade gifts, such as jewellery and bookmarks. Based in Mid-Wales, UK, all items are made with love and care from a home studio. This work of love started as an Etsy shop in 2013, and in 2017 I published this website.

I feel inspired by nature, science, books and poetry, and I try to incorporate these themes into my products. My customers make it possible for me to practice my hobby fulltime, and there is nothing more satisfying to me than making my customers happy with my creations.

It’s a one-woman show!

I run this small business alone and enjoy the variety of work involved. From photography to webdesign, and from making items to packaging them.

I started making jewellery as a small hobby, and decided to finances this hobby by selling the results online. However soon after I started selling through Etsy it grew into a full time occupation, and I left my job.

Next to the making of items, I always loved photography, web design and writing, and I realised how all these hobbies were combined in being a shop owner of handmade products.

Thanks to having an online shop, I can live my ideal lifestyle surrounded by the beauty of nature!

As my Etsy shop was becoming my main source of income, I was able to swop the grey of the city, for the green of Mid-Wales. Within Wales I recently relocated to the lovely market town of Llanidloes, on the banks of the river Severn. Having an online shop allows me to spend my free hours on dog walks and mountain hikes in Wales.

My job is my hobby, my hobby is my job!

Making items for my shop is an absolute pleasure, and I keep challenging myself by using different techniques and materials. I want to keep learning, and I want to keep on enjoying the making process, which is why my shop contains such a variety of items.
