I grew up on the west coast of Canada - as west as you can get, in the small-to-medium sized city of Victoria, BC. Being surrounded by tree huggers, it was only natural that I didn't shave my legs for 4 years. Then I moved to Vancouver and realized you don't have to wear tie-dye to prove your love for the planet. Actions speak louder than not shaving.

I'm a jewelry designer, with a background in graphic design; a big believer in recycling, organic food and supporting locally owned designers and businesses, and hand made products.

I'm a jewelry designer, with a background in graphic design; a big believer in recycling, organic food and supporting locally owned designers and businesses, and hand made products.

I use recycled, vintage and eco-conscious materials wherever possible. Former accessory lines included one of a kind “rescued sweater” scarves made from thrift store wool sweaters and leather cuffs and earrings made from scrap leather castoffs. And of course, the now infamous “eat organic” screen printed line of organic cotton panties.

The BuenoStyle line of vintage re-worked jewelry launched in January 2007 to an amazing response! Using vintage “dead stock” beads and brass stampings from the 1920’s to the 80’s, combined with authentic vintage finds such as skeleton keys and thrifted items makes for unique pieces. People are intrigued and delighted by the “narrative” theme of the line. Many of the pieces seem to have a story behind them, or invite you to make up your own story.

My second jewelry line is called OAK; One of A Kind. Any piece labeled OAK is truly unique, never to be repeated.

Please check my website for stores across canada that carry my line.

Wholesale inquiries are most welcome.
