About Heliboo ?

Let me introduce myself, Julie, I live in Belgium, I am a 3D graphic designer. I have always evolved with a creative path. Drawing, painting, photography, video, I turned as my artistic evolution towards computer graphics and 3D, a field where I could practice a nice job and know great experiences. But after a few years, the need to get out of my screen and do something more creative quickly arose. I discovered a passion for fashion and especially its accessories. At first, I started sewing, bought a few beads to make a necklace, then a pair of earrings, etc…. The idea of creating an eshop was quickly put in place. So I decided to create the Heliboo project, recently, in May 2017.

The origins of the name ?

In fact, there are none, I took a paper and a pencil and I made an association of letters and ideas, the logo came in stride.

My choice for fashion jewelry.

With Heliboo, I offer you a range of fashion jewelry of personal creation, but I quickly realized that it was not enough. So I unearthed little by little favorites that will take up a large part of the collection, selected by me, for you.

Of course, I continue to associate them with new creations, but this project allows me to wear several hats. I use my skills for the graphic part with the management of the website and social networks, the management (less funny), I take back my camera for my greatest happiness in order to best present the products to you, I pack your orders and take care of sending them as quickly as possible, I also travel to many events to meet you, and sometimes I work in partnership with other entrepreneurs, bloggers… I am constantly looking for new ideas to develop my project and when I have a little time left, I continue to create.

Heliboo creations and collections.

Heliboo creations are made, here in Belgium, according to the mood and desire of the moment. They are imagined from different elements that I unearth everywhere, whether new or sometimes even salvaged, some models are unique pieces. I try to follow current trends like floss and pompom, shells in summer, freshwater pearls, natural stones, large knits… Very recently I started making plexi earrings. The plexi parts are laser cut in Belgium. They are very light to wear.

In order to expand my selection, and to offer you a complete range of fashion jewellery, I have also chosen a series of “favorite” items. They do not come from the Heliboo factory, but they are real favorites that I wanted to share with you and have in my shop. I select them according to my desires, some according to your customer feedback. These are, jewelry, bangle, postcard and various accessories. I also recently opened a section for children (which can be perfectly suitable for adults for certain pieces and certain morphologies), and also a less fancy one in gold-plated and silver/rhodium 925/1000.

They joined the favorites and reinforces the Girly offer.

But also… The project is constantly evolving and by dint of ideas and beautiful encounters, I want more and more to offer you a selection of designers to complete the “Girly” offer of the shop. 100% natural candles, cocooning with bath products, small decorations with storage boxes, cactus or message boards, stationery, fashion accessories and even Christmas balls from a florist in the region in winter… This is only the beginning, but the goal is really to create a variety of boxes and gift ideas for you that are easily sent to your home (and yes, preparing and receiving a package is also a gift) or directly to address of your best friend, aunt, cousin, mother, …
