Welcome to Scot and Scandi Designs.

Marie-Christine Pavone is a very imaginative jewellery maker working in Paris. Her innovative designs are created using vintage 1920's and 1930's galalith which she hand carves, paints and then polishes. Each Pavone piece is unique as it is hand made and all items are signed by her. The brooches are fitted with a roll safety clasp. She produces mainly brooches but also necklaces, bangles and earrings. The galalith is old unused stock and gets its name from the Greek gala (meaning milk) and lithos (stone). It is one of the oldest phenolic materials and a mixture of solidified milk and formaldehyde and was first produced in 1897. It has been used for many items like buttons, pens, boxes, dice, accessories and jewellery worldwide ever since.
