I am in love with this necklace and so are lots of my friends! I'm in a power wheelchair, and always have my left foot in some kind of boot since I was 12 and mangled it in a gym class accident. My doctors even complimented the pendant. It makes me laugh which makes having Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in the leg easier to deal with. Thanks for your wonderfully clever designs. I'd get the shoulder one also, but I'm hoping that's temporary. My daughter has scoliosis, but doesn't wear necklaces, darn it. It did crack her up though.

About

Jewellery to start a conversation!

In 2006, we went treeplanting for the first time. Treeplanting is known to be an extremely difficult summer job. When we first arrived in the bush camp, people looked at us and thought there was no way we would last more than a week. But we did—we stayed the entire season, and were even top planters at our camp.

When you decide to do treeplanting, you commit to living in the bush for 4 months of the summer, living in a tent in very isolated camps in northern Canada (we planted mostly in Alberta). 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 even went on to do more seasons, Tara as a tree checker (she had to have surgery on her shoulder after a year of planting) and I did 4 more seasons as a planter.

So back to the story–

In the clearcuts, there are these giant piles of sticks and logs, called Slashpiles. During the season, they kind of get in the way of planting, but at the end of our first season, we climbed them to photograph our ‘victory pose’ (see above, photo courtesy of Fabienne Good). After the season, we created a silver jewellery piece based on the slashpile, 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, 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.

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. We are constantly working to come up with new and exciting products that our customers can relate to with their own stories.


Thanks for looking!
