HANDMADE JEWELRY IN UNIQUE COPY
My Polish origins guide my creations
"Babusia" is pronounced babouchia and means grandmother in Polish.
The brand tells my story. The story of my Polish origins, colourful memories of my childhood, of my travels in Poland and Russia full of mystery and nostalgia.
It was created in 2018 in the Hauts de France in the Nord department, where the Polish imprint is still very present.
"Babusia" is above all a mysterious, passionate woman with a bohemian spirit.
The artistic universe
Floral and colourful creations
Babusia is a bohemian-style artisanal brand with vintage but also ethnic accents through the choice of beads.
My creations are both flowery and colorful, like the village of Zalipie in Poland, but also very inspired by Slavic women: the folk dancers "Krakowiak", icons and matriochkas.
All the jewellery is handmade, woven with beads in my workshop.
Each creation is original. It is thought out, designed and above all it is made in unique copy.
Flowers and portraits
The main collections are :
- The "Babusia" collection, the first collection which takes the flower of my logo, inspired by Polish folklore and represented here as a Russian doll.
- The "Kwiat" collection (flower) like the "Babusia" collection is inspired by Polish floral folklore. It is like the village of Zalipie in Poland: flowery and colourful.
- The "Krakowiak" collection is inspired by the "Krakowiak" female folk dancers with their flower crowns, ribbons and clothes embroidered with flowers and sequins.
- The "Matriochka" collection is influenced by Russian dolls.
I mainly use peyote stitch and brick stitch bead weaving that I make entirely by hand.
I have a preference for delicas beads, very regular Japanese beads that allow me to draw patterns and characters with great precision.
The chains and primers are made of brass gilded with 24-carat fine gold. They are more resistant than gold-plated.
I also make felt jewellery that I embroider by hand with pearls and sequins.

Ce week-end, je me suis rendue dans un salon polonais 💐 Vous devez déjà le savoir mais j’ai des origines polonaises du côté de ma maman alors évidemment, la culture slave a une grande place dans mon cœur 💖 C’était donc évident que je tombe amoureuse des créations en perles de @babusia_bijoux 😍 J’ai eu beaucoup de mal à choisir car tout est si beau et original ! Je me suis finalement décidée pour ce collier à l’effigie d’une jolie polonaise traditionnelle qui m’avait attiré l’œil en tout premier. Et comme on dit, il faut toujours rester sur sa première idée 😉 Ce collier est somptueux, une vrai œuvre d’art 💕 Vous pouvez voir son rendu porté en story (qui restera permanente car je l’ai ajouté dans ma story à la une intitulée « fashion »). #pologne #polonaise #polska #slave #flowers #babusia #babusiabijoux #magic #slavic #handmade #necklace #perles #dianesnotraphotography
