Luctor et Emergo

Order of Artio celebrates intrinsic beauty that comes by way of the road less traveled. The kind that shows itself in our peculiarities; our battle scars. It is decorations that remind us who we are no matter how strange, painful or long our journey is.

‘Shandy’s Candy’ started while working on my degree in visual arts and was ceramic based; handmade porcelain pendants and deconstructed necklaces. Shortly after graduating, I moved to Vancouver, sold my kiln and stopped making jewelry. After almost completely abandoning art, I came back to the idea of creating wearable objects but wanted them to be more than just pretty…

What does personal aesthetic mean to us? Why do we decorate ourselves? It seems that the way we choose to express aesthetic beauty is a reflection of something deeper. It is the way we outwardly express the experiences that make us ‘us’, to others. I liked the idea of ‘decoration’ as the act of adorning as well as honoring. Many of our experiences aren’t easy or pretty. When we realize we have emerged from those experiences stronger, braver, tougher, wiser and proud of it; that is beautiful. We wear our oddities and battle scars like medals because we love who we are; all of who we are.

Struggle and emerge…

In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.

TS. Eliot.

Regular shipping is posted on each item. BUT Canada post does not provide tracking or insurance for small packages. For smaller inexpensive items I would recommend this method as it is quite rare that an item is damaged or goes missing. But it does happen occasionally.

I cannot refund items that are lost or broken in the mail if you choose to ship regular mail. It's not that I'm cold hearted, but simply have no way of knowing what happens once the package leaves my hands.

Here is the breakdown of Canada post shipping methods for Canada and the US. If you are anywhere else, please contact me and I will find out the details for your item.

United States:

1) Regular un-tracked shipping is posted in listing.

2) Small parcel $6
this is insured up to $100 but has no tracking and is on the 'honor system' meaning it is up to Canada Post and may take awhile to be resolved if an item goes missing.

3) Registered/Express post $19
Tracked and insured. Safest way to ship. If your item is over $100 I very strongly recommend this method.


1) Regular un-tracked shipping is posted in listing.

2)Express Post:

BC, AB, SK $12
Covered up to 100$ tracked, and guaranteed to arrive within 3 business days.

All other provinces and territories $18
Covered up to 100$, tracked, and guaranteed to arrive within 5 business days.

If you would like your item sent via express post or would like to purchase extra insurance, contact me for an exact cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns if the piece is vastly different from what was described or you are horribly disappointed with it. It will be up to you to return the item post marked no more than 7 days after it is received.
