About

Jewellery to start a conversation!

We (twins, Tara and Courtney Neray) specialize in creating jewellery of personal significance to the wearer. Drawing from an eclectic mix of experiences and interests, fused with a sense of humour and perceptive insightfully into human behaviour, we create pieces that are both meaningful to the wearer and pleasing to the eye.

In 2006, we went treeplanting for the first time, and it changed our lives. Treeplanting is known to be an extremely difficult summer job. You commit to living in the bush for 4 months of the summer, living in a tent in very isolated camps in northern Canada. Everyday, you wake up super early to start planting trees, which you carry around with you all day over rough terrain, planting between 2000 and 4000 trees per day. You get paid per tree, so you have to work hard to make it worthwhile. There are bugs, swamps, extreme weather conditions, bears and many other challenges. That’s not to say we didn’t enjoy it–on the contrary! We had an amazing time and met such incredible people. We went on to 6 more seasons between the two of us, and found the inspiration for more than just our Slashpile necklaces, Plant-a-tree bracelets, and injury series. This job taught us efficiency, dedication, and a sense of adventure that carries over into everything we do.

After the season, we created a silver jewellery piece based on the slashpile (giant piles of sticks and logs found in clearcuts, where the planting takes place), that was designed to be a medal for finishing the full season. This piece gave us the foundation of our branding for Slashpile Designs—every one of our pieces reflects a story, concept or achievement. And this piece is a prime example of how we do that.

Through our various and ongoing adventures (karate, snowboarding, roller derby, quilting, gardening, camping…just to name a few!), we gain valuable experiences that inspires our work. What makes Slashpile Designs a success is the fact that other people who share similar interests and experiences can also relate on a very personal level to our creations. All of our pieces tell a story, or have some sort of clever meaning that people can relate to in a very specific way. We try to incorporate humour and lightheartedness into our work. We have fun with the whole process, from coming up with the initial concept to making the pieces by hand.

The idea is jewellery to start a conversation--if you are wearing one of our pieces and someone asks you about it, the piece (and the story behind it) gives you an opportunity to talk about something that you're proud of. We create a body of work that is insightful, funny, sometimes quirky and always beautiful, out of our downtown Toronto studio.

I hope this gives you a clearer insight into who we are and why we do what we do! If you take a look through our collections, hopefully you can even relate to some of our products with your own stories!

Thanks for looking!
