Beautiful product and beautifully presented.
Good design doesn't have to cost the earth. In any way.
Hi! I am Marie-Pier Labelle and I am the Owner, Designer and Maker at Days of August.
Nothing in my life had prepared me to be a solopreneur.
After obtaining a Bachelors in Film Production at Concordia University in Montréal, I moved to Australia with my husband in 2004 and worked in the camera department on feature films for 9 years.
I've always preferred using accessories rather than clothing to convey my personal style. Making jewellery had been my creative outlet since I was a teenager, and I continued making and acquiring new metal smithing skills between film shoots.
I started Days of August as a side project in 2011, and attracted more attention than I had anticipated. The business quickly grew to a point where it needed my attention full time. I signed off on my last movie in 2013 and jumped into Days of August with both feet.
As Days of August has developed and evolved, its core ethos has remained the same. I use recycled and reclaimed materials to make unique pieces by hand. The business is carbon neutral. The work is made locally. The practices are ethical and cruelty free.
And I am quite proud of that :)
Thank you for your ongoing support! Small business like mine could not exist without you, oh conscious, responsible, wonderful shopper!
Go on and see what there's in store for you!
Owner, Designer, Maker
I am a French-Canadian now living in Australia. Days of August came from a desire to make unique pieces of jewellery that would stand the test of time both structurally and aesthetically. Carbon neutral, handcrafted design. www.daysofaugust.com
