Welcome to our whimsical world!

These are all original designs, designed by us and made by us. Each design involves creating a "master" using traditional silversmithing techniques (this takes hours and hours of painstaking work).

A lot of work goes into finishing the castings, including grinding every single piece to make the surfaces smooth and clean. That part's not much fun, but it's important, and we do it all in our Montreal workshop.

Our creations are made to last, however, sterling silver is subject to tarnish and may require a bit of cleaning from time to time. Exposure to oxygen is what causes the tarnish, so it helps to keep your jewellery in a ziplock bag when you aren't wearing it…

We have found the easiest way to clean sterling silver is with a paste of baking soda and water, or with a silver polishing cloth.
