Lies Mertens invites Manon Barelli


This talented jewelry designer presented her first collection in our Antwerp shop.

“She grew up in Belgium, but her roots lie in the South of France – a region to which she regularly returns. Look closely and you’ll see that the French Riviera style permeates her jewellery collection like a dreamy haze.
Attracted by pure craftsmanship, Manon studied interior design and subsequently trained as a goldsmith and jeweller in Antwerp, Belgium. Passionate about her craft, she quickly mastered the technical skills of her chosen profession and founded her own jewellery brand before completing her training, and with success.
Manon makes all her jewellery by hand and consciously opts for one-of-a-kind gemstones and freshwater pearls. Because no two pieces are ever identical, her work is that little bit extra special. “ (

The combination of conscious design, timeless- and uniqueness is why we not only love her, but why Lies dedicated a bag to her. Read our other blogpost to properly meet Manon: a classic woman oozing french style.
