HANDMADE JEWELRY IN UNIQUE COPY
A BRAND MADE IN FRANCE
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.
Each piece of jewellery is original and unique
Each person is unique and the Babusia brand pays particular attention to this. Each creation is original and unique.
Each piece of jewellery is handmade, bead by bead. A long process that starts with reflection, studies, drawings, choice of colours before starting the creation with the weaving. Hours (a ring), days (a pair of earrings) or even weeks (large necklace) of work are necessary. A meticulous work done with a lot of love which gives the name "Hand-made" all its meaning.
The "Babusia" brand favours quality over quantity by choosing "handmade" and offers few pieces.
THE BOHEMIAN BABUSIA STYLE
Flowers and portraits
You will find in the shop colourful and flowery jewellery in the image of the village of Zalipie in Poland with the "Babusia" and "Kwiat" collections inspired by Polish floral folklore, poetic jewellery with the "Ptak" (bird) collection which pays homage to Chagall or more precious and high quality jewellery such as the "Krakowiak" or "Matriochka" collection. The latter pay tribute to women always through folklore.
- The "Krakowiak" collection is inspired by the Polish folk dancers" with their flower crowns, ribbons and clothes embroidered with flowers and sequins.
- The "Matriochka" collection is influenced by Russian dolls.
MADE IN EUROPE
Delicas and primers in brass gilded with 24k fine gold
Delicas are very regular Japanese beads that allow me to draw patterns with more precision than seed beads.
All the other materials come from France or Europe.
The primers are mostly made of brass gilded with 24-carat fine gold or premium brass for the bronze colour. Each description of the article specifies this.
High-end jewellery such as the "Krakowiak" collection is sold in an attractive box.
Capsule jewellery is sold in an organza, kraft or berlingot pouch.
My career path
ART AT THE HEART OF MY CAREER
Work on identity
I studied Fine Arts, Visual Arts and Audiovisual Arts. I practiced drawing, painting, sculpture...
Identity, the search for my roots has often been at the heart of my academic and personal work with the realisation of various plastic and cinematographic works.
The creation of the "Babusia" brand is a continuation of this work.
I have been working with pearls since my early childhood. I like the meticulousness and the long term work. I have chosen delicas beads, very regular Japanese beads, which allow me to create patterns with precision.

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
