About

My Story

Hello! I’m Trace, a Canadian expat currently living in Sweden with my husband, son and two crazy cats! I started designing professionally in the early 90s while earning a degree in Fashion; graduating on to designing sunglasses, hats, mens and womens apparel, shoes, bags, homeware—you name it, I’ve probably done it!

Design is a natural process for me. I am always creating something! This jewelry collection evolves from my love of world travel and being inspired by beautiful, unusual objects, cultures and styles and translating that back home in my studio by carefully shaping materials such as brass, gold and gemstones into perfect pieces of distinct, limited-edition, designer jewelry. With the help of my pliers, cutters, paint, adhesive and some good music in the background, each curation is born out of a love for creativity and a passion for individuality.

In my spare time you can find me compulsively organising our cozy, Scandinavian apartment; plotting our next world adventure; designing and creating nik naks; and enjoying the pleasures and idiosyncrasies of everyday family life.

Enjoy your browse, and do convo me if you need any help. Thank you!

Stop by and hello at my blog, thefashioncollector<DOT>com, where you can discover more about me and my chronicles on Style, Travel and Living!

Personal Note

Biographies are really weird things. About pages. All that. You basically have to puff yourself up and act all important to make sure people know why you’re worth it. I’m a really approachable and nice-seeming person. Never hesitate to introduce yourself to me, okay? I’m nice. Promise!

Care instructions

All jewellery will be supplied in a box, so store them in its original packaging, especially when travelling.Keep all pieces away from water and moisture, out of the bathroom, and apply perfume and cosmetics, etc before putting your jewellery on.
Also avoid hard or sharp subjects and remove your jewelry before sleep, exercising, etc.

Raw brass will darken (tarnish) as time passes, but it cleans easily with tooth paste. Apply a small amount of tooth paste, gently clean with a tooth brush and wipe with a dry cloth.

Please refrain from pulling on the pieces as some are extremely delicate and may become damaged.

Planet Friendly

Shop in good conscience as all packaging is 100% recylable or re-useable and contains no plastic whatsoever.

Will my jewelry tarnish or turn?

Durability of your jewelry depends on the material and care.
Stainless steel items are tarnish free, hypoallergenic and can be submerged in water and even can be in contact with sweat/body oils and it will not tarnish nor turn green.
Brass, copper, silver plated, or gold plated (brass or copper) will tarnish if in contact with water, chemicals, perfumes, oils and sweat. Please keep these items sealed in a plastic bag and stored in a cool, dry place when not being worn.
Feel free to ask me any more questions through Etsy convo.
