A horseshoe-shaped bracelet

Un bracelet en forme de fer à cheval

1. An ever-present equestrian inspiration

I have always had a special attraction for jewelry. As a child, I made rings and bracelets out of pearls and electronic cables that I stripped to keep only the metal part. I spent my time diverting horse bits to make bracelets or belt buckles inspired by this equestrian world that still inspires me today. I then sold them on the beach in the summer with a cousin to make some pocket money.



2. “All art originates from an exceptional defect” - Maurice Blanchot

I named the bracelet “L’Origine” because this jewel is the one that launched the rest of the collection and gave me the necessary impetus to create my brand. When I created it, I had no idea that it would be the starting point for Mayrena Paris. At that time, I had no predefined project or particular desire related to entrepreneurship.

In 2015, while working on very minimalist wired kitchen tongs, during my product design training, I found myself with a scrap of brass metal. By the rigidity of the ends of the material, this rod once shaped looked more like a horseshoe than the shape of a classic rod that I intended to give it. When I put it on, I realized that it worked very well as an open bracelet on the outside! From this error was born l'Origine.


I then reworked this bracelet to make it a double bangle, in the shape of a slightly curved U, open on the side, to give it the best ergonomics and the impression of lightness that characterizes it.
Designed and elegant at the same time, l'Origine dresses the wrist and reveals it. It is worn alone or in accumulation, by placing the opening on one side or the other of the wrist. It comes in two sizes, tightens and adapts easily to the wrist.



3. A bracelet 100% Made in France

L'Origine is first shaped by Alexandra herself in her workshop in Normandy before being plated by one of the best French craftsmen in the field of galvanization.

In summary, l'Origine bracelet is an elegant design, French and responsible production and the assurance of making a lasting and timeless gift that is sure to please.
Thanks to its simplicity, l'Origin has also been available for men, only in its silver version.

4. Vermeil and silver

Still in this idea of ​​timelessness and durability, l'Origine is available in vermeil and silver, two precious materials that make it the perfect gift for any occasion!

What is vermeil? The vermeil is composed of a 925 silver base covered with 5 microns of gold (which is equivalent to 18 carats) thanks to an electrolysis bath.

925 silver is a guarantee of purity and quality. Silver does not change over time and is the guarantee of true durability.
