I am very excited to be part of this “Wrapped in Courage” event on Saturday March 19th here in Winnipeg. Proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities in support of helping victims of domestic violence. If you have some free time between 10 AM and 5 PM please come by and say hello!
Happy Friday everyone! Be excellent to each other!
I’m always excited when people ask us to make special items as gifts for people. A few weeks ago we received an email asking for us to make a custom necklace. Our client wanted a variation on our Vintage by Drakestail Jewellery line, using our gorgeous Swarovski crystals, and as soon as I read the email I was excited to get started!
Our client explained to me that any time he texts with his wife, he always ends the conversation with XOXO. He wanted to put that into a Valentine’s gift, and came up with the idea of using XOXO in Morse code, -..- — -..- —, spelled out in pearls. After discussing colour options, he picked Rosaline pink to represent the dashes, and lavender to represent the dots. He chose light gold for the rest of the necklace. As soon as he made his picks, I got to work, curious to see the end result.
The Morse code was a great idea and the necklace turned out great. I tucked in one of our signature stardust beads, which he loved as well.
Want to send a secret message to someone? We’d love to do more Morse code pieces! What would you want your jewellery to tell the world?
Have a fabulous Friday, lovelies!
This past Saturday, Trish and I had the pleasure of setting up our lovely jewellery at the Bizarre Bazaar at Zaphod Beeblebrox. We were treated to a great DJ, the bar was open, and we had a fantastic, eclectic group of vendors to hang out with. I picked up a handful of goodies for myself, including some sriracha popcorn and some cute charms that I’ll be working into some jewellery. Our shoppers were some brave, hardy souls, coming out despite the -40C weather. It was loads of fun, despite the cold!
With Valentine’s Day coming up on Sunday, of course we had to do a post about love! Regardless of your relationship status, we *all* deserve to love ourselves.
