Gris-gris [gree-gree] – noun, plural – Protective charm, amulet or fetish.
GrisGris Factory: A Montreal design studio infusing exceptional jewelry design and anomalous aesthetic with international tradition and spirituality.
Founded in 2005 as an exclusive design studio for a small and enviable clientele, Montreal-based GrisGris Factory has grown to become home to a wide array of both local as well as internationally skilled designers and jewelry crafters. From traditional sketches and wax castings to 3-D computer rendering, GrisGris Factory uses the most innovative design techniques to accordingly compliment and respect each of its lines.
All gemstones are hand selected by suppliers with ethical-sourcing certification, and base materials such as .925 silver and white gold, are specifically chosen for their ecological accessibility and aesthetic properties.
While GrisGris Factory designs are now available online and at select boutiques, custom pieces remain a significant part of the studio’s offering. Made-to-measure orders for private clients who want to embody something with personal significance are always welcome, as are retail and charitable organizations who wish to create limited-run lines for exclusivity.
Looking towards spring 2011, GrisGris Factory’s new pieces are inspired by nature, both plant and animal life, flowers, insects, etc., with special attention given to making clasps and hinges part of the piece and not just functional.
