Edgy jewelry with a soft side... or romantic jewelry with an edge... depends on how you see the world.

How did this all start?

I started this shop just over a month ago after being coaxed by my friends and family to share what I create. I started making jewelry a few years ago on a whim... because I wanted something different and unique to wear that would make me stand out (in a good way).

What inspires me?

My creations are an extension of my personality; kind of romantic with a bit of an edge. A lot of my inspiration comes from nature; the sparkle of water on a sunny day, a sandy beach, a cool green forest and bunches of colored flowers. I am also inspired (and a little obsessed) by what I like to call "treasure hunting"; going to thrift stores and searching online for treasures I can renew and breathe new life into. My family, friends, and loved ones, who support me in everything I do, inspire me to keep going no matter what.

What do I want everyone to know?

Each piece has love and energy and a story.... Now all these wonderful pieces are waiting for you to make them part of your story.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my store!

My goal is to create affordable accessories that people love to wear. Using and re-using vintage, upcycled and repurposed jewelry, I breathe new life and positive energy into the items I create. All of my creations are one of a kind and unique; I never make two exactly the same!

I am happy to consider custom orders and/or creations, please convo me with the details of your request.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
If there is something wrong with your item when you receive it or it breaks within the first 4 weeks of wear, please send it back and I will be happy to refund or provide an exchange of equal value. I would also be happy to fix it for you and send it back.

Most of the items I work with are vintage or re-purposed, or have special painting techniques used on them; as a result they will be somewhat delicate. I will NOT refund items that have been damaged by immersing in water or any other chemicals, or worn in extreme situations such as sporting activities or other activities that are outside "normal" wear.
Because of international restrictions I am unable to use direct checkout. I do accept Paypal and am willing to consider money order or cheques. If orders are paid for by money order or cheque, the payment will be verified before the orders are sent.

Should the payment NOT come through as expected I will re-list the items as being for sale.
Items will be shipped within 4 days of payment being cleared.

I will use Canada Post small package mail to save on shipping costs. If you want to order multiple items, or want a larger item, please convo me for shipping costs. If you want your item delivered via Priority Mail (faster delivery time), please convo me since there will be a higher shipping cost.

Typical shipping time internationally is 4 to 6 weeks; within Canada between 7 to 10 days. If you are paying by cheque or money order, please ensure you add time for the payment to clear before the time to ship. I will inform you of approximate shipping times and whether or not your payment has cleared in a convo.

International buyers: Customs duties, taxes and any other fees that are charged upon delivery are your responsibility and are not reflected in my shipping charges.
