Aurora, earrings and Le Pop!


Le Pop! will be part of Toronto’s Frugal Fashion week, and features a selection of local artists curated by my talented friend and creative colleague Dylan Dias, and I’m one of the featured designers!

The event is taking place here in Toronto –
Where: Nyood Restaurant – 1096 Queen st. West
When: Saturday July 28th, from 11am to 4pm

If you’re in the area come down and check it out, there will be a great selection of local artists and designers to browse through.

For my pieces I’m going to be focusing on my Inspira work – pieces of jewellery I have created inspired by photos I have taken. My latest piece, created just last night, is (no surprise here) inspired by photography of the aurora borealis.

A pair of dramatic, 4″ long earrings in a black hematite finish display the colours of the aurora in genuine Swarovski crystal before ending in a hematite tassel detail.

The crystals were picked to evoke the spectrum in my photos, and will be sold with a print of the aurora photo that inspired them.

I decided on hematite instead of silver to draw attention to the crystal gradient, as the night sky framed the light show.

They, and many more of my pieces, will be featured at the Le Pop! event – if you’re in the Toronto area on July 28th come on down and check us out :)
