February Contest Winner

Whoooops. I posted this on insta and totally forgot to post it on the blog. I just started a new job so the new hours are something to get used to. The winner of February’s earrings was an instagram user and she picked out a lovely pair of studs. March’s giveaway is a $5 gift certificate!

Confused? Follow and comment on any and all posts made in the month to enter to win a monthly prize. Discounts, gift certificates, free shipping, stuff..!

Studs For Days

I love these little studs. They’re just so charming! Tiny little bronze hearts are painted and resin coated, with stainless steel posts. I’ve got a few pairs I’m keeping to myself, and these ones are getting listed in the shop throughout the day. Mostly hearts, but there’s a few stars as well. Next time I get supplies I’m going to make some more shapes as well. I’m feeling geometrics like circles and triangles might be next…

Monthly Contests Start Now!

Who’s ready to win stuff!? I know I’m ready to start giving things away. Starting today, I’ll be holding monthly contests across all my social media platforms (blog, instagram, and facebook.) It could be for coupons, discount codes, or items.

This month will be…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Your choice of any pair of earrings in my shop!

How to enter? It’s easy.

  1. Be following me.
  2. Comment on any post made by me that month.

That’s it! At the end of the month I’ll tally up all the comments, use a generator to pick a winner and make a post announcing who won.

Now for some rules to clear up anything:

Open internationally.
No giveaway/spam accounts.
I have the right to decide what counts as a comment (essentially, I don’t want comments consisting of ‘.’ or ‘follow for follow’. Heart and thumbs up emojis are totally valid though!)
Must be 18+ in cases where I need your address (like for this month).
Winners have 48 hours to get back to me with any info needed otherwise another winner will be picked.
If you comment on the blog, you only have to be following the blog. Same goes for facebook and instagram. But feel free to follow everything ;P.
Only one comment per post counts, but you can comment on any/all posts across all platforms for multiple entries.

I think that’s it, but I’ll announce if I remember something else or need to make clarifications/corrections.

Mixed Metals

I love getting requests for custom pieces! That extra bit of outside inspiration leads to some of my most favourite pieces! A friend asked for mixed metal earrings and a matching necklace to go with. The necklace is reversible, having all the same colours but a different brush stroke pattern on the back more akin to what’s on the earrings.

This is off in the mail now, and I think I’ll need to make more similarly patterned pieces in different colours before I get my fix!

Cashmere Cowls and an Update

I know, I know. Who are you? Where did you go for months? I’m sorry. I’ll try to not let it happen again, haha. I’ve moved twice in the past few months, and am only now finally working on updating my online shop, though I have been crafting many goodies lately, I promise I’ll share them with you soon. I’ve been speaking to a few shops about wholesale and consignment and have had a few bites, so I’m also preparing for those. It’s been a pretty exciting time back in Canada!

I’ve been sewing non stop for the past few weeks and it feels so good. Combine that with hiking and discovering a new area, it’s been super exciting. Plus, getting to speak English everywhere, that’s something special that I’m still not all used to.

Just look at this place! My new favourite hiking spot.

I’ve been hoarding these two pieces of fabric for quite some time and finally combined them into super soft, super stylish cowls. I made two of slightly different sizes, but personally this wider one is my favourite.

100% wool outside, 100% cashmere inside.. It’s just so soft! I’m definitely going to need to go through my stash soon and make a few more of these. And maybe find some more cashmere because that’s all I had left. It was a dream to work with and feels oh so snug around the neck!

Transparent Photo Pendants

I’ve had this idea in my head for ages and while most of the pieces I’m working on are curing upstairs, I couldn’t wait to share these almost finished pieces with you!

Transparent photo pendants

These gorgeous pendants are made using my own photographs and are my first try at Little Windows resin. Let me tell you, I’ll never go back to Crystal Clear after this! It’s a fantastic resin that makes me sad about all the pieces I’ve wasted bad resin on. Oh well, live and learn…

transparent see through jewellery

These ones are totally transparent as you can see, though that means the image isn’t showing up very well over dark colours… I’m trying a few more ideas so that I’m not doomed to wear white every time I want to wear one :P. I’m itching to get the others finished but resin takes time and you cannot rush it! So tomorrow I’ll get to take a look, flip them over, and finish the other side. Fingers crossed everything works out or I’ll be back to the drawing board.

I’ll be sure to update with the finished pieces as soon as they happen!

Magical Rainbow Unicorn Jewellery

I just wanted to share a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on. These just need a bit of cleaning up and assembly, and they’ll be ready to find new homes. I can’t wait to see these all finished, in their colour shifting magical glory!!!
