Beaded and elegant gifts from Lorraine Clavel

As the festive season quickly approaches, here are a few suggestions from a local artist. Lorraine Clavel has been making beaded jewelry for around 15 years in Sandy Hill. She creates one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces with unique combinations of colours and beads. The types of beads she uses in her creations are freshwater pearls, mother of pearls, Murano and other glass beads, as well as turquoise, bohemian crystals, tiger eyes, jade, moonstones, lapis lazuli, quartz, jasper, hematite, wood, and more. She specializes in creating beautiful sets of necklaces and earrings.

Lorraine has also been part of the committee, chaired by Hélène Lacelle, which organized for many years Sandy Hill’s One & Only Arts and Crafts Fair, and an active participant in the fair for years in a row.


You can find Lorraine’ s creations at the Mags Plus store, located at 420 Rideau St. In addition to sets (necklaces and earrings), you will also find bracelets, chains, rings and earrings.
