Atelier Cayelle

Eco-friendly coffee ground jewellery to wear & to gift

Marie is a French designer who has lived in Australia since 2014. She studied applied art and design for seven years in France and Belgium before working as a creative for 18 years across France, Switzerland, Canada, and Australia. In 2015 feeling the need for a more meaningful career, she went back to school to study Furniture Design at RMIT Melbourne. Since then, she has exhibited in a variety of shows: including Front Centre at Denfair Melbourne (Twice), The Design Week NGV, and her work was shortlisted twice at Vivid Melbourne. Later, she’s launched a range of furniture handmade by family-owned businesses in Victoria, Australia.

In 2015, in the furniture workshop, Marie made a table out of recycled coffee grounds. Funny for a coffee table - she thought. Little she knew that it was the beginning of something else. She fell in love with this new material and decided later on to turn it into jewellery. After lots of trial and error, she launched Atelier Cayelle Jewellery in 2017.
