In September of 2012 in an effort to bring more spontaitity to my practice, I began a 365 project. For this project I decided to make something new every single day for a year, and post them online. You can follow my progress at robinfitzsimons365.tumblr.com. As you will see the pieces run quite a wide range of media including drawings, graphic design, textiles, video, and a whole bunch of leather craft. Many of my daily pieces have been various styles of leather jewellery. After numerous comments from friends and fans who follow the blog, I decided to start selling my jewellery, and Fitzy was born.
Here at Fitzy I make leather jewellery and other cool stuff. All of these products are handcrafted by me, Robin Fitzsimons, in my Toronto studio using high quality materials that I source from Canadian and American manufactures wherever possible. Fitzy pieces are designed to last, and the patina of time will only make them more beautiful.
