  • Ursa Major + Jewelry on the Runway

    A while back, my dear friend Imke designed and made a beautiful collection of lingerie and leather jackets for Arts & Fashion Week Toronto.  Her line was incredible and the fact that she sewed everything herself speaks to her talents (and possibly her craziness!).  She needed some jewelry for the runway show and I created a mini collection for her that I continued and expanded for this store because I loved it so much.  Here are some of the images from the post-runway shoot, most of the jewelry you can find in the shop and you can check out the uber-amazing Imke here.
    Shop the Ursa Major+ Jewelry Collection here, or clicking on the image will take you to that particular piece of jewelry.  As always, I recognize that all bodies are beautiful and diverse, so size customization is available for most pieces at no extra charge.

  • The Love Yourself Event at Tabula Rasa

    store

    Just before Valentine's Day I collaborated on an event with one of the best boutiques in the east end, Tabula Rasa.  The "Love Yourself Event" featured my jewellery line Hibou and I was there customizing necklaces on the spot while TR was debuting some of the their new must-have spring pieces.  Here are some pics from the night!

    Here I am in my favourite shirt that I hand-shredded while watching too many episodes of my ultimate guilty pleasure, Star Trek: TNG. What am I looking at? Probably the delicious vegan cupcakes that are just in front of me.

    One of the customizable Hibou pieces is the Mojo Bag.  Pick a stone that speaks to you, choose your re-purposed leather swatch, we prepare it, and you walk away feeling the positive vibes!
