Juliette came to Galway, Ireland from Lille, France in the summer of 1997 to improve her English and is still here! In Galway she met Paul Doyle, local musical instrument maker. She worked in his workshop where he trained her to decorate stringed instruments with mother of pearl and with wood, using one main tool: the fretsaw.
In her spare time she started making her own celtic jewellery using the same beautiful woods from the instruments and the exact same technique used in the decoration of instruments. She started selling the jewellery at week-ends in the Galway market
