Thanks so much for all your love and affection! Truly, none of this would be where we are now without your support in small businesses! Thanks for supporting handmade, traditional jewelry work over the so accessible fast fashion that is out there on the market, ready to gobble us up! Your choices and values have been the wind in our sails for these incredible 13 years!
My favourite part of a year recap is to look back to where we started, in 2018. Astrid was only 18years old and making jewelry for fun! I'm sure that to this day, she couldn't have predicted where Inchoo would be at now!

Yearly Recap Highlights!

2020 was a very hard and unpredictable year. Covid hit us hard and we learned to manage and surf a storm that we weren't ready for and couldn't have predicted. We are so proud of all the beauty that blossomed from chaos life threw at us.

A bit of our last 13 years recap pictures!
inchoo bijoux 2008
2008. Inchoo was named Mawie et Tatide, and then switched to Frazou. Astrid was obsessed with cutie little bows and ribbons and would make these statement cute pieces. Entrepreneur as always, she would rent seller booth tables in Cegeps during lunch times to sell her art between classes.

After being Mawie & Tatide, and then Frazou, Inchoo is born from Astrid's Armenian heritage, Bijoux from her French background. Inchoo means Why in Armenian, and Bijoux means Jewelry. In all Inchoo Bijoux means Why Jewelry! A question Astrid still can't answer. She often says that jewelry chose her! hahaha!
inchoo bijoux 2009
In 2009-2010, Astrid switched from her ribbons and bows to a completely different style. Astrid's love of textures brought her to upcycled furs and feathers. Yes that used to be Inchoo's logo for a time... hahah!
inchoo bijoux mademoiselle sefra
Selling at Mademoiselle Sefra was one of the most incredible experiences that defined Inchoo at an early age. Sefra's designed very bold and edgy jewelry in silver and obsedian. She opened a very glamourous shop in Quebec to sell her jewels along side with pieces from badass women designers from around the world. Names like nOir Jewelry, Nicolina Royal, MataHari, Skingraft and more! Selling at Mademoiselle Sefra really boosted Inchoo's love for goth and alternative aesthetics and gave us aspirations!
mademoiselle aime le style inchoo bijoux 2013
In 2013, Inchoo was lucky to be worn and featured on the cover of Mademoiselle Aime le Style, a Quebec online magazine. There was a full editorial included where the model Marilyne, wore over 10 different Inchoo Statement pieces!

in 2013, Inchoo was worn by Francois Verreault at La Voix (Quebec version of The Voice). Francois has been a fan of Inchoo from it's early beginnings and it was such an honour to see him on Tv, wearing our leather choker!
inchoo bijoux commandite burlestacular
 Around 2014, Astrid started being a part of Quebec City's Burlesque Troup and Inchoo Bijoux was one of their main sponsors for a long time! We had so much fun designing statement jewelry with lace and chains and huge feathers for shows! Inchoo sponsored almost every Burlestacular show since their debut! Since then, Inchoo Bijoux has sponsored many burlesque events, fashion shows, erotic events and more!
It's always nice to look back at all the work that has been done from that time that got us to now! Tonight we raise our glass to another year of wicked jewelry, with the most amazing team, and YOU!
Thanks so much for your support and love!
