Get to Know
My current collection is suedette, ( synthetic suede for you folovers) and chain. I merged techniques and materials to produce lightweight, unique, colourful pieces for women of all ages; women who like to express their individuality.
A little bit about me: I grew up in rural British Columbia Canada; my family owned and operated a tree planting company (which is a story all on it's own). The short version: summer camp for twenty-something's where you work hard and play harder. A vastly different world than the world of fashion, believe me! I worked as the camp cook for the summer season, hair in a scarf, food on my apron and crocs on my feet! In the winter I took fashion design classes, wore high heels, designer jeans and worked high-end retail on 4th avenue in Vancouver.
I have been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember, which is tricky to develop when all you have is the Sears catalogue and Fields. For those of you who grew up in small town Canada in the 80's you know what I mean! Out of necessity I learned to sew. My dream was to be a fashion designer, until I went to art school where I ended up in the jewelry studio.
Jewelry and accessories are my opportunity to design and make wearable art. I love it! Earrings, belts, bracelets, hairpieces and one day SHOES. I travel with at least 5 pairs, (I have a wee little problem with shoes). My boyfriend says I am a maker, I think it is an accurate description. Thank you for reading about me, I hope you have fun in my shop.
