I have no words to express how much I love this necklace! My order arrived faster than expected & included was a special surprise. Everything about these pieces is exceptional. The little pouch & the hand written thank you note was perfection. I look forward to wearing this for a long time!

About

The curation of a magical girl and her big imagination

More than 10 years of the hustle, bustle and creative whirl of the floral industry was coming to a slow down for me, the retirement of the main designer that I was working with was imminent.
I had been a part of some pretty spectacular productions, floral splendor well worth writing home about, and I was feeling ready to move into something new.

In February 2008 I opened my Curious Oddities shop on Etsy, selling vintage finds, handmade cards and jewelry, shipping all over the world. In my youth, my father was a scrimshaw artist and glass sandblaster/ engraver so I had grown up with full access to his studio, making many pieces of my own and becoming comfortable with all sorts of tools and mediums.

About a year after opening my Etsy shop, the floral designer that I was working for retired. I took on 3 shifts a week at a floral studio and began focusing more seriously on Curious Oddities, selling at small shows around town and listing on line. Business grew, shows were successful and by 20I0 I had begun selling through a few shops in town as well as through more and larger shows. My floral job ended and I began working a regular 2 days a week at a leather shop.
After about a year I took that terrifying last step and began working on Curious Oddities full time.
It's a grand adventure, absolutely full of challenges and I'm always changing and growing as the business changes and grows!

Currently I have my studio in dundas, Ontario where I feel ever so lucky to be able to spend my days with my 3 cats creating, curating, and sharing the things that I love with the rest of the world.
