Meet the team that creates your badass jewelry!
Inchoo Bijoux was born from Astrid Apissoghomian's love for poetry and intricate ornaments. Inspired by the glamorous and feminine side of baroque environments, the designer loves to create conversation pieces using the body as a canvas. Her work is a modern take on gothic aesthetics, featuring traditional references like skulls, studs and crosses, mixed with a rocker twist and a deep love for over-the top, statement pieces and haute couture jewelry. With Inchoo Bijoux, she aims to create the perfect balance between edgy fashion and glamour jewelry. Each piece finds its own distinct personality, becoming a unique poem and unveiling force and finesse through noble materials.
I’m one of the jewelers and designers at Inchoo Bijoux! For me, it’s a great honour to be part of this successful business that is own and run by women. Plus, the tiny pieces we make here take me out of my comfort zone and give me the opportunity to broaden my jewelry skills. I create from the abyssal part of me, where the darkness thrives and pushes my boundaries and limits.
Catrinoire is an expression of the alternative vision I have of this world. I wish to express the beauty of difference and making a statement out of it.

I’m so happy to be in this inspiring team as a jeweler! I studied in Arts and in Jewelry at CEGEP, here in Montreal.
I really love creating and expressing myself through jewelry and painting. I’m fascinated by all small details, shapes that are perfect and imperfect in nature. They inspire me to make my own jewelry lines. My favourite parts of the craft are soldering and all the details of the steps in jewelry making. I constantly learn new techniques in this amazing field.
I’m also passionate about vintage stuff & music, long walks and drinking coffee all day!

My name is Eve and I have been working at the management of Inchoo Bijoux since the end of summer 2019. I have just completed my DEC in business management and I am continuing to university in Marketing. I also studied visual arts for two years before entering the world of management.When I'm not planning, working on excel files or telling jokes I specialize in erotic polaroid photography and recycling art where I like to transform used or worthless objects into collectable treasures. I am also passionate about fashion, horticulture, cycling and martial arts.
I’m a stylist, blog writer and booth babe at Inchoo Bijoux. I’ve been working with Astrid for almost eight years now. I touch a lot of things in the company but not the production of the jewels because I care about my fingers! (Jewelry making is hard on the hands)
I’m passionate about reading and arts, jewels and makeup design. I also have a little place in my heart for twisted dirty humour, but don’t say that out loud. It would let people think that I have a heart.
I feel very lucky to be a small part of this team of wonderful women and be able to know them all. Working for Inchoo Bijoux gave me the opportunitie to meet fabulous people and that’s, for me, more precious than any gemstones!
I am a photographer and I've been working with Inchoo Bijoux on special projects for over a year now.
I love that I get to work with such talented, inspiring and amazing people - BUT, I especially love that I get to have a first look at new pieces and brainstorm exciting photos with Astrid. Inchoo jewellery always pulls out the best in my work.
Outside of Inchoo, I run a private studio where I photograph people from all walks of life. I create unique decors to shoot in and constantly strive to provide a safe & welcoming environment.
