My Little Bonheur- Who is behind the label -
I'm Melanie Mirabel, the founder and designer of my little bonheur. I was born and grew up in Düsseldorf, Germany. After graduating from Business School, I worked in Marketing Teams of international companies in Germany and Sweden. In these years, working on exciting product creations and design projects, I discovered my passion for handmade products. In 2012 I moved to Spain and arriving in the beautiful town of Barcelona I decided to make my dream come true and started my own jewelry brand with the vision that personalized jewelry brings you a little piece of joy into life - either to cherish a beloved ones or to buy it for your own treat. And so the name ‘my little bonheur’ was born. The french work ‘bonheur’ means luck and joy.
I meanwhile got married to a wonderful French man and have become a happy mom of 3 restless boys. When I am not crafting bracelets and necklaces or driving our kids to their different music or sports classes I love to do a lot of sports and to travel with my favorite “men” in life.
