How does Justine organize her embroidery work?
Here is the second part of her portrait, let’s discover her know-how.

Where do you work?

I work at home, I don’t have a proper workshop, maybe one day. For now, my things are in boxes that I carry everywhere. A small desk to have a seat and boom, I can work!

What is your favourite tool?

I couldn’t work without my ultra thin needles. Without it, no jewel! I embroider cotton thread, rhinestone, sequins…

What tools do you mostly use?

A needle to create jewels, then my mini scissors to cut the pattern and my clamps for finishings.

What materials do you mostly use and why? Which one do you prefer?

I have three favourite materials : DMC coloured cotton threads, sequins in silvery metal and Swarovski rhinestones. Together, it creates a harmonious whole, I like to work with these 3 materials.

How do you choose raw materials?

According to my tastes and needs, I also ensure to maintain the quality.

Do you produce – by yourself – all the pieces of your collections?

Yes, I produce all my jewels by myself.

What does a usual working day look like ?

There is no usual working day, I work at my own pace, according to my desires and orders. But, as I work by myself, I have to do everything: to imagine new jewels, to produce it, to prepare orders, to answer my emails and to upload articles on social medias.
