The warm and fuzzy feeling of shopping at the One of a Kind Christmas Show is part of a holiday tradition for many of us in the Toronto area. Connecting with long time friends and colleagues and eating Brooks Chocolate every day (just because we can) is a sure way to get into the spirit of giving. I look forward showing you the new jewellery I’ve created this year like the pearl toggle bracelets that join to make sensational neckpieces and the blushing hearts in rose gold and sterling.
We’ll be exhibiting the last 6 days of the show only so be sure to come by our booth Q30 from December 3-8 and drop your name in the jar for “a little something blue”. The lucky winner will be drawn during our Studio Open House on Saturday December 14.

These rings were created for a couple who are so passionate that making them was a pleasure knowing how excited they would be but I was blown away when he opened the box and got so overwhelmed by emotion that he teared up! So touching as he walked up to the goldsmiths and showed them how beautiful his fiancee’s ring was and pointed out the hand- engraved detail.
Collaborating to design a custom piece is a lot of fun….not like the EdgeWalk kind of fun, more like a Saturday morning at your favourite indie cafe kind of fun. Relaxed, with no pressure. We can start with a definite design concept or browse the box of stones with the idea that anything is possible. Often the perfect piece is finished in the showcase and it’s love at first sight. Either way, the process of having an hour to brainstorm together makes the final reveal so exhilarating that it’s better than the EdgeWalk and a memory that will last forever.

This press just in….
Just got back to the studio from a fantastic trip to Las Vegas where I was shown “The Royal” treatment as featured Canadian diamond designer in Rio Tinto’s “Diamonds with a Story” campaign at the world’s most prestigious jewellery industry show JCK/Luxury at Mandalay Bay. Rio Tinto is a mega natural resource corporation who has stakes in many diamond mines including Diavik Diamond Mine in Canada and Argyle Mine in Australia. The Royals Collection, displayed at the show is inspired by the royal wedding of William and Kate. The Royals consists of Round, Princess and Marquis Canadian Diamond centre stone engagement rings that uniquely fit with bands and Achievement Rings that interlock to create many fabulous sparkly stacks. I’ve spent many years behind the counter helping couples choose the perfect style and the versatility of these rings makes it so much fun and there is always a great reaction from my clients. There are literally endless variations to guarantee a look all your own.
