France Painchaud

France Painchaud's passion for jewellery started while on a four-year trip to Central America, where she discovered a world of colours, stones, and metals. She first explored the possibilities of the material by herself before completing training at the École de joallerie de Montréal in 1999. She returned to the Magdalen Islands for inspiration, renewal, and personal balance. Her creations, inspired by nature, are rich in originality and diversity and have been exhibited throughout Quebec. She has won several awards and distinctions.
