Dear
Readers,
There is no denying that the temperature spikes drastically up during the
summer months. Just as there is no denying that there are so many ways
to chill out while soaking in those rays. You’re just a hop, skip and a jump
away from being refreshed in a pool, waterfall, river, beach, and even the
mountains. Jump in, swim, snorkel, Jet Ski, or lay back on a hammock and
enjoy a good book. Sip some fresh coconut water, a prestige, or a mixed
drink of Rhum Barbancourt or Vieux Labbé. Just Dive in and simply enjoy.
Welcome to Haiti. Welcome to the destination many are getting to know
and enjoy. If time allows, venture out and discover the diverse sites that
make Haiti so magical.
As you peruse this issue of Magic Haiti you will develop a better understanding of the abundance, richness and diversity of Haitian art as you
read about an art gallery and innovative designer. You will also meet
Haiti’s very own superhero, encounter an engineering mogul who has
opted to make Haiti his home, and of course eateries and lodges that will
make your visit even more enjoyable.
The goal of the magazine is to promote local tourism by encouraging
foreigners, Haitians living in the Diaspora as well as locals, to explore and
discover the depth and breadth of Haïti. Our country is rich in culture
and more specifically in the arts.
Haïti is increasingly becoming the island that comes to mind when
planning an enchanting Caribbean getaway for rest and relaxation or an
adventurous vacation. Upon your return home share your experience,
become an ambassador. Pass the word.
As you wind up your stay in our slice of the world, I encourage you take a
piece of Haiti home with you.
Magic Haiti strives to provide you with a variety of enticing possibilities
so that you can take the bull by the horn, carpe diem, just go, discover,
indulge, and become another ambassador of this magical island.
Experience the vibrant colors, unveil numinous places and characters,
immerse yourself in our culture, and emerge enamored!!!

Dear Readers,
The high season is upon us! This is one of the best
times for our ultimate destination to welcome you,
visitors from around the world. The changes are now
evident. The destination is ready and waiting for you.
Mrs. Stephanie
Balmir Villedrouin
Minister of Tourism
Indeed, the Ministry of Tourism and Creative
Industries of Haiti (MTIC) that I head in conjunction
with the private tourism sector, combine our efforts
and are making every effort to accommodate you.
First and foremost, we have focused on the safety
of visitors. Thus, the Tourist Police that has been
deployed in the metropolitan area, will be in the
Northern metropolis this summer with the same
mission to accompany visitors and secure the main
attractions of the region. In addition, the overall
security situation in the country is stable. ''There is
an 88% decrease in cases of insecurity compared
to last year,'' according to the National Police of
Haiti. On the other hand, many tourist sites across
the country have been renovated and are ready to
receive visitors. Finally, recent investments in the
sector, are expanding the number of hotels. A new
asset to welcome visitors.
Chers lecteurs et lectrices,
La haute saison arrive ! C’est le moment par
excellence pour notre destination de vous
accueillir, vous, visiteurs des quatre coins de la
planète. Les changements sont maintenant
flagrants. La destination est prête et n’attend plus
que vous.
En effet, le Ministère du Tourisme et des Industries
Créatives d’Haïti (MTIC) que je dirige et le secteur privé
touristique conjuguent leurs efforts en mettant tout en
œuvre pour vous recevoir. En tout premier lieu, nous
avons mis l’accent sur la sécurité des visiteurs. Ainsi, la
Police Touristique qui était jusqu’ici repartie dans la zone
métropolitaine, arrive cet été dans la métropole du Nord
avec la même mission d’accompagner les visiteurs et de
sécuriser les principaux sites touristiques de la région. De
plus, la situation globale du pays en matière de sécurité
est stable. ''88% de diminution des cas d'insécurité par
rapport à l’an dernier'', selon la Police Nationale d’Haïti.
D’autre part, nombreux sites d’attractions touristiques à
travers le pays ont été aménagés et sont prêts à recevoir
des visiteurs. Enfin, les récents investissements dans le
secteur, agrandissent le parc hôtelier. Un nouvel atout
pour l’accueil.
All of Haiti’s regions have a unique potential
likely to entice you should you want to have a dream
vacation during this summer season. The South Coast
is full of sublime beaches from Aquin to Port-Salut,
passing by the beaches of Gelée and Ozanana in Saint
Louis du Sud, superb caves such as Marie-Jeanne in
Port-à-Piment. All this and more, promise each and
every visitor, the most pleasant stay.
Toutes les régions d’Haïti ont des potentiels
uniques, susceptibles de vous retenir si vous pensez
avoir des vacances de rêve pour cette saison estivale.
La Côte Sud regorge de plages sublimes d’Aquin à Portsalut, en passant par les plages de Gelée et Ozanana à
Saint Louis du Sud, et de grottes superbes comme celle
de Marie-Jeanne à Port-à-Piment. Tout cela et d'autres
encore, promettent à tout visiteur, le plus agréable des
séjours.
Well known for the talent of its craftsmen,
Jacmel and its neighboring regions with the
majestic waterfall of Bassin Blue, satisfy the requirements for you to enjoy a great holiday. The Parc
National Historique (Citadelle, Ramiers and SansSouci) contains the main attractions for you to relive
some of the important moments of our history as a
people.
Très connues pour le talent de leurs artisans, la ville
de Jacmel et ses régions périphériques, avec la majestueuse cascade de Bassin bleu, remplissent les conditions
pour vous faire passer des vacances réussies. Le Parc National Historique (Citadelle, Ramiers et Sans-souci), contient les principaux attraits pour vous faire revivre certains moments importants de notre historie de peuple.
Major cultural events are in the works. In
addition to our traditional fêtes champêtres which
take place in various municipalities in the country,
for the past two years, the Port-au-Prince Carnaval
des Fleurs and the Festival de la Mer in the North
have been added to the destination’s calendar of
events for the summer vacation. In Port-au-Prince,
the best groups of Haitian music and the ingenious
works of our artists and artisans, will parade in
Champ de Mars on July 27, 28 and 29, 2014. In the
North, the third edition of the festival which has
garnered success, the Festival de la Mer promises
to be more impressive.
One wants to find a nook where to spend
vacation that we will have lasting impression. If
you are still hesitating, this is the moment to
select a unique destination. Choose the soul of the
Caribbean. Choose Haiti!!!
The country awaits you. Come on board,
Come live the Experience!
De grands événements culturels s’affichent.
Outre nos fêtes champêtres traditionnelles dans
diverses communes du pays, ces deux dernières
années, le Carnaval des fleurs de Port-au-Prince et
le Festival de la Mer dans le Nord ont été ajoutés au
menu de la destination pour les vacances estivales. À
Port-au-Prince, les meilleurs groupes de la musique
haïtienne et les œuvres ingénieuses de nos artisans
et artistes, vont se défiler au champ de mars les 27, 28
et 29 juillet 2014. Dans le Nord, la troisième édition du
festival à succès, le festival de la Mer s’annonce plus
impressionnante que les précédentes.
L’on veut un coin où passer des vacances dont on
se souviendra longtemps. Si vous hésitez encore, c'est
le moment de faire le choix d’une destination unique.
Choisissez l’âme des Caraïbes. Choisissez Haïti!!
Le pays vous attend. Montez à bord,
Venez vivre l’Expérience!

profession, Dominique
Carriére Tassy has recently delved into her
longtime passion: designing
elegant handbags for women
of all ages.
“Though I studied and
pursued a career in management, I always found style
and sketching designs to be
irresistible, even at a very
young age. “Three years ago,
I decided to give into it and
it has been very fulfilling,” she
recounts.
Under the brand name
Micou Design, she sketches
patterns that she then gives
to her employee, Solon, to
execute. Having worked with
him for 20 years, she credits
the artisan for bringing her
inspirations to life. “I am constantly awed by the richness of
the materials that I find at local
stores. The various colors and
textures all evoke different
images and they sometimes
literally transform before me.
When I see these images, I put
them down on paper and try to
do them justice through their
execution.”
The primary material used
in her handbags is jute, a goldencolored, coarse type of plant fiber
that is second only to cotton
in the amount produced and
its diverse uses. Though it is
originally rough in texture, its
fine threads can create a light,
stylish, and refined item when
treated carefully. Some of her
bags also include pieces of
treated plastic that add their
own unique character.
Uniqueness is very important to Dominique, and she
prides herself on making her
work distinctive. “Most women
would rather not have the same
bag as someone else, so I think
it’s important to give every one

of them its own personality,”
she explains. Looking over her
collection, I definitely notice
subtle differences in each one,
whether in the vibrant colors or
the shape of the handles.
She makes sure to tell
me that her handbags are
designed for different looks.
For a day accessory, one of her
unembellished creations is a
must-have. With their simple,
clean lines offset with a pop
of color from a brightly colored
wooden or horn handle, they are
sure to garner many appreciative
stares.
In the evening, a sequinedcovered bag can add a sophisticated touch to any attire. “I
would absolutely categorize
my items as occasion bags,”
Dominique says, “They are not
bags for everyday wear, but
rather they should be used for
special outings.”
She recently showcased a
collection at this year’s Femmes,
Créations & Production, a trade
fair featuring the works of many
of Haiti’s female designers. She
is also active on social media
outlets such as Instagram where
pictures of her bags can be found
by searching Micou Design.
She plans to display her bags
in some boutiques in Pétion-Ville
and is currently working on
adding jute sandals to her
fashion line. I look forward to
donning my own pair!

A
s a diehard reggae fan,
I was ecstatic to have
a one on one conversation with James
Vergneau, better known as
Rebel Layonn. On many occasions, I had closed my eyes, put
my hands up and danced to his
songs. I even hung out with this
artist who is always sporting a
huge smile a few times. But this
was my first chance to delve
into his thoughts which he so
beautifully converts into music.
By Carolyn Desert | Photos by Ludmillo Pierre
Rejwi or “rejoice” is one
of my favorite Rebel Layonn
songs. It’s a feel good tune that
speaks of positivity, gratitude
for Mother Nature, and for life
overall. I always wondered why
the artist chose this particular
name, meaning ‘rebellious lion’
in Kreyòl. For me, his songs
don’t evoke anything close to
a mutinous, belligerent nature.
When I told him of my confusion,
he laughed genuinely.
“Nah, Caro. Not that kind of
rebel, a rebel for the right cause.
A rebel for peace, for justice. A
rebel against corruption.” His
words made me think of Bob
Marley; it seems that they have
similar views.
The 34 year old artist
has been expressing himself
through music for a while now.
Throughout his teenage years
in the States, he found himself
relating to hip-hop Back then,
Public Enemy, Black Sheep
reigned and rapping was about
police brutality and injustice.
Hip hop artists inspired Layonn
as “the civil rights activists of
music.” James believes that this
genre of music lit a fire that got
the blood of a Rebel boiling. The
more he listened to hip hop,
the more his quest for understanding broadened.
Interestingly, his love for
the genre did not urge him to
perform it. His musical career
began with a genre of reggae
called, raggamuffin.
JUNE / JULY 2014 MAGIC HAITI 7
Rebel affectionately calls
it “gyal” music since admiring
women is the primary subject
matter. Back in Haiti, Rebel
along with a few other artists
combined their talents and
created Organized Divine
Disciples (ODD) or “odd”.
ODD was a group of young
curious men simply searching.
They were investigating their
histories, digging for the truth,
seeking an identity.
Together they produced
fusion music, incorporating
conscious hip hop, dancehall and acapella. This was an
“odd” combination for Haiti,
nonetheless people found it
remarkable. So remarkable that
they captured the attention of
international independent label
company, Group Therapy and
with their support Organized
Divine Disciples released a video
for their first song “Jouk Kile”. The
relationship with the agents
did not last unfortunately, as
political turmoil hit Haiti and
the members of Group Therapy
fled back home.
According to Rebel, ODD
was the seed and Yzrael became the tree. Rebel created
the full band with more organic
and mature sounds, and with
a more focused message. For
seven years, Rebel and cohorts,
Zikiki and Ibez pushed on
learning as many instruments
as possible.
And now, the Rebel is
exploring his passion with a solo
project. His goal? To offer a top

quality album in which he fully
expresses artistic freedom while
staying true to his nature and
the message. Kay Pay Records
picked him up and together,
they created Rebel Layonn’s
latest album, ‘Misyon’. From
“What a thing”, an upbeat tune
that demands body movement
to the adorations of ‘Rejwi’, all
15 tracks of Rebel’s debut effort
deliver deep soul as well as uncomplicated optimism.
Musically, Rebel Layonn is
maturing and he looks forward
to making you dance while
making you think - “That’s the
misyon!’

Djatawo there, a Haitian superhero that defends the
rights of the Haitian masses. He protects the environment and emanates positive energy to accomplish his
goals. His main nemeses seek to damage the environment and the world through mind-control. His dream
is that Stan Lee from Marvel comics or DC Comics
will take on Djatawo and turn it into a movie. Djatawo

Anthony introduced
Magic Haiti to Djatawo for
a live face-to-mask interview.
M: Thank you for sitting down
with us Djatawo, can you tell
us how old you are?
D: I am as old as the universe.
M: What is the most dangerous
situation you’ve confronted?
D: At a carnival, a crowd of
people were possessed with
an evil intent to destroy the
environment; I had to save
them without hurting the
innocent mind controlled
population.
M: What types of villains do
you regularly battle?
D: I battle with villains that try
to and control people’s minds
and seek to harm the environment.
M: What is the deal with your
light-reflecting mask?
D: It allows me to do three
things: 1) see the materials
inside of the earth; 2) see the
energies living beings possess;
and 3) project positive energy.
M: Do you have a girlfriend?
D: Yes, her name is Tanama
which means butterfly in the
native Taino language; she is a
protector of nature.
M: Do you have a sidekick?
D: Yes, his name is Kosmo, his
super power is super knowledge. He is like the internet;
he knows everything but can’t
intervene or use force to battle
villains.
M: Do you have a secret identity?
D: Of course I do, but I’m not
revealing my secret to you!
M: Alright, Djatawo, extra
secretive! Do you have any
closing words?
D: To everyone reading and
especially the youth: follow
your dreams with passion
and love full of determination
with all the positivity you can
muster and all of your wishes
will come true.
You can get Djatawo
comic books at any bookstore in Port-au-Prince

T
he first adjective that
comes to mind when
I think of Muncheez
restaurants is laid-back.
This is a place to come as you
are, enjoy a healthy serving of
barbecued ribs, and lick the
homemade sauce off your
fingers afterwards if you so
desire.
And savor every last bit,
you just might... It's that good.
Where Everybody
Knows Your Name
16 MAGIC HAITI JUNE / JULY 2014
Chef and Co-owner, Gilbert
Bailly, certainly won’t mind;
he’ll take it as a compliment
for his secret recipe. Bailly’s at
one of the four locations of
the restaurant chain every day
of the week greeting his loyal
clientele. Although, when it all
started, he never dreamed he’d
being doing this full time.
Muncheez was born of the
whims of Gilbert and four pals.
They all had day jobs and they
wanted to create a place where
they could hang out and let
loose in the evenings. Thus, in
1997, the Pétion-Ville restaurant
sprang into being with a small
amount of capital and the simple
intention to stay afloat so the guys
had a place to chill.
“We had no idea that
it would be this successful,”
remembers Gilbert who now
with his remaining co-owner
Cliff Duveaux, considers themselves career restaurateurs. It
seems that the neighborhood
was just as hungry as they were
for a casual, welcoming place.
The demand only grew over
the years and today Muncheez
serves up generous portions
at four locations around the
Caribbean capital.
All four hotspots fill booths
and tables with lunch and dinner
clients daily. Patrons shake hands
and tell jokes before settling in
for a satisfying meal and a drink
or two. A regular at Muncheez
never lacks for companions as
there are always familiar faces
like Gilbert with an open chair
waiting for you.
Each Muncheez bears a
singular charm. The newest
location in Bon Repos offers
all the signature hamburgers,
pizzas, and salads to a compaloving crowd. Bois Verna serves
up fried chicken suspiciously
reminiscent of the Colonel's,
while diners follow life on the
busy downtown thoroughfare. Muncheez Airport Road
provides a lunch buffet for busy
professionals in the area. And,
the Pétion-Ville Muncheez has
deep dish pizza, billiards, and
of course, Carnival.
We can't do Muncheez
restaurants justice without
mentioning the pre-carnival
Pétion-Ville
extravaganza.
" A regular
at Muncheez
never lacks for
companions "
Every Sunday leading up to Fat
Tuesday, Muncheez embraces
a crowd of thousands that spill
onto the street in pulsing mobs.
The DJ on the terrace keeps
things thumping in between
passing musical acts. It's an all
night party uniting the neighborhood, so popular, that it
renders Gilbert one of the
Pétion-Ville's most recognizable personalities.
Truly Muncheez has evolved
over the last two decades into an
institution. The four locations
serve as landmarks in each
area, because it's a chain where
all are welcome and many
frequent. Gilbert says, "When
people get used to a place,
they’re not going to change
easily. They know the people
there. They get the same sincere
welcome every time." Stop by to
introduce yourself today and
make yourself at home among
Port-au-Prince's friendliest.

t is a pure moment of
pleasure each time I walk
through the doors of
Ateliers Jérôme an art
gallery in the center of PétionVille where lovers of art and
novices alike can take in the
beautiful pieces of art the gallery
houses. It was founded in Haiti,
in 1985 by, Jean-René Jérôme
and Mireille Pérodin Jérôme,
members of the International
Association of Art Critics,
Caribbean Region (AICA
Caraïbes) to afford artists
a place to showcase their
works as well as a platform
where they could interact
amongst themselves and with
those interested in the arts and
culture. It is no surprise that Les
Ateliers Jérôme has become a
gallery of reference.
Jean-René Jérôme, a
renowned Haitian artist, was
a very gifted individual who
as a young man participated
in many artistic activities

this area. And as a result, the
mission of the workshops
offered at Les Ateliers Jérôme is
to strengthen the links between
Haitian artists, collectors, art
lovers of all age groups, as
to create an art haven of
sorts for the promotion and
dissemination of art, poetry,
music, and cinema. It has
become a great place for those
seeking to gain more knowledge
on the history of Haitian art.
It is especially exciting to
visit the gallery when it has

specializing in hair bracelets and luxury resort
wear. Meet Birgit Grossmann Coles and Lorraine
Manuel Steed.
Birgit, a German-American woman born in
New-York, obtained a degree in International
Business in Washington, D.C. Upon graduation,
she followed her heart to Haiti, that’s to say,
she followed the man she loves. One fateful
day she decided to attend an expo organized
by a Port-au-Prince art gallery. Very casually
she meets a woman, Lorraine, who at the
time worked at the gallery. The two ladies
became friends, but I am sure they had
no idea this encounter would forge their
destiny.
Lorraine has a very different background. She is Haitian and studied art history,
graphic design, and fashion illustration in
New Jersey, Paris, and New York. A true artist
herself, she devoted her life to the promotion
of art.
Birgit and Lorraine were struck by a
powerful lightning bolt of friendship that
day at the art gallery. That connection has
blossomed into a 15 year relationship, a
complementary coexistence
characterized by humor and
mutual respect.
The idea of going into
business together came as
the two women dealt with
grief post-earthquake.
Confronted with the consequences of
the disaster, , Lorraine and Birgit
wanted to help alleviate the pain.
Together they dared to rise from
the ashes through a surprising
medium: hair bracelets. Bright
and colorful wide elastic bands
that double as jewelry. This
endeavor began just as hair
elastics were emerging as a
worldwide trend. Birgit and
Lorraine created a hair tie
bracelet inspired by our very
culture and traditions using
vèvè designs and Arawak motifs. They are wearable symbols
of unity, both functional and

partners with organizations
such as Life Giving Force and

bracelet sold purifies one gallon
of water a day!
Today, Simbi sells its
bracelets in 1,000 stores in the
U.S. including Target. Fashion
for a cause, and advertised as
such, Simbi has enjoyed rapid
success. The bracelet retails
for $2.50 in surfing stores,
yoga studios and specialty
boutiques. But the journey
does not stop there.
Birgit, the business mind,
and Lorraine the artistic soul
launched in July a collection
of high end, luxury resort
wear. Dresses, pants, shirts,
and handbags fashioned out
of lightweight materials such
as linen and cotton. Handmade
and embroidered in the Valley
of Jacmel, their delicate pieces
do tell a story. The story of an
enchanting island, a territory
full of elegance and desire.
Great workmanship, coupled
with great taste and originality,
Simbi brand apparel is gaining
traction in vacation communities such as the Hamptons in
New York and Palm Beach in
California.
Together Birgit and Lorraine
have united with an enterprise
that educates the outside
world about Haiti and supplies
thousands with potable water.
It was a delightful experience
to have met these two dynamic
women. Special ones they are,

seek acidity. This attribute which
sounds off-putting, renders a cup
of Joe light and delicate. Grand

boasts the highest acidity of
the Wiener products. After a

and cinnamon remain on
the tongue in the absence
of coffee breath. Towo, on
the other hand, coats taste
buds with a thick chocolaty
flavor. The new Moka blends
burst with added aromas such
as hazelnut.
Coffeephiles after the perfect cup gravitate towards heirloom varieties like Haiti’s Typica.
The genetic makeup of Haiti’s
coffee trees differs only slightly
from its ancestors in Ethiopia
and Sudan. While the tree has
all but disappeared on the
world market, it grows in abundance in Haiti where fourth

with fourth generation traders
like the Wiener family to deliver
pure, authentic taste.

You may have heard
of tornado chasers. Mr.
Miyamoto is a disaster professional of another breed. Wherever tectonic plates cause the
Earth to shake, Kit is there.
Hence his appearance in this
intriguing territory one week
after the major earthquake
event of 2010. More than four
years later, the Structural
Engineer is still here. The
inherent climate as well as
the business climate transformed Kit’s emergency relief
sojourn into a permanent
relocation.
“I love the sun. I feel at home
here,” he says simply, adding
that he did not experience those
intense gamma rays growing up
in Tokyo. He also divulges that
he was something of a square
peg in Japanese society.
“As a kid, I always wanted
to play American football for
the Dallas Cowboys.” Upon
graduation from high school,
Kit sped across the Pacific
to study anthropology at
California State University
and played on their Division

20th floor to the structural
engineering department and
saw 500 engineers in suits
and ties working with no
noise. I thought, Wow if I start
working for this company, I’ll
probably get fired within one
week!” So, back to California it
was, although Kit did return
to Japan to obtain an advanced
degree at Tokyo Tech. In 1997,
he became CEO of the California
engineering firm now bearing
his name, Miyamoto International. He built the enterprise
which specializes in anti-seismic
construction, on the philosophy:
‘Save lives, impact economies’.
With Miyamoto Int. offices
in ten countries, two young
daughters in California, and
earthquakes happening all
over the world, Kit’s carry-on
luggage logs tens of thousands
of miles each year. But where
are most of his clothes and fullsized toiletries? He shares that
Port-au-Prince has graciously
adopted him. “The energy of
this place is unbelievable. It just
has a kind of mystique feeling
about it. The whole country is
like that. The light, the smells.
This place energizes me. I’m
an extrovert. Here, I get even
more extroverted, because the
people are extroverted.”
Miyamoto stays busy
professionally with projects
ranging from the newly
completed Kinam Hotel in
Pétion-Ville to the ToussaintLouverture International Airport to pro-bono initiatives
through the Miyamoto Relief
such as a school renovation in

On the personal side, the

He swims nearly two miles a

L
issa Jeannot is everything but an ordinary
woman. Born and
raised in Port-auPrince within a family of artisans,
later trained in Spain and Italy
as a ceramic artist, she is now
working on a one-of-a-kind
jewelry line using precious
stones with healing components. Lissa is a mother, a
polyglot, a Reki practitioner,
and a renowned artist.
Undoubtedly, she carries
the artistic legacy of her family
with honor. Her grandmother
taught drawing and her mother
manages an embroidery workshop in Port-au-Prince. After
graduating from high school,
Lissa received a scholarship
to study in Spain where she
attended ceramics school
and joined Taher Tchurukha,
a fashion brand. In Spain,
and later in Italy, Lissa was
introduced to metal, leather
and ceramic jewelry. After
spending seven years on
the European continent, she
came back to her native Ayiti
to let her creativity develop
and flourish.
Lissa

by precious beads, handmade pots, and of course, her
impressive kiln.
While she is most widely
known for having a way with
clay, Lissa creates remarkable
jewelry including earrings,
rings, bracelets, charms,
and pendants. What is most
intriguing about her jewels,
are their healing properties.
“Don’t be too skeptical,” Lissa
tells us. “Eight years
ago, I got very
sick and started
wearing a quark
crystal. It exploded, burned me
lightly and…a few
days later, I was
healed. Since then,
I have been investigating stones and
crystals and their
powers. Sickness
is due to a lack of certain elements
in one’s system. When you think
about it, the stones are inert and
contain minerals. Therefore, it is not
surprising that they can give us just
enough of what our bodies need.”
Lissa’s extensive knowledge of
crystals and precious stones is astonishing. She not only assembles
aesthetically pleasing compositions,
but also assures a combination that
can provide the best healing action.
When questioned about her
creative process, Lissa proudly says,
“Being Haitian gives you certain
predisposition for creation. Here in
Haiti, everything has to be done, so
you have no choice but to be creative.”
Regarding her favorite stones,
Lissa enjoys working with the black
tourmaline crystal, a powerful
stone said to ward off negative energy of all kinds. The stone not only
repairs mental negativity but also protects from vibrations caused by electronics.
Finally, one must know that every
piece designed by Lissa is unique. “A lot
of people come to me for protection,
money,or love, but most of this is already
there, unfortunately people don’t always
see it. When you know what you are
after, you get it; the jewelry reinforces
your faith and spirituality, the stones
reinforce the determination to reach
your objectives.”
Exciting news, Lissa Jeannot is
currently working on a jewelry
collection which she expects to exhibit
in Haiti at the end of this year.
