A story to inspire you to embark on your own adventure, because if not now, when?
You can see by the uniqueness of her jewelry and her ability to make the ordinary, extraordinary, that Verena Strigler was meant to create.
A German born and educated goldsmith, Verena first came to Vancouver in 2004 and worked at a jewelry retail front, designing and handcrafting one-of-a-kind pieces for Vancouver’s elite.
While satisfying work, after 3 years Verena, a traveler by heart, felt the urge to wander the world and applied to work as a jeweler on board international cruise ships.
The sights she experienced and the people she met during this time left an imprint on Verena that later became the muse behind her first jewelry line. And as fate would have it, she also met the love of her life.
With Verena’s debut jewelry line, she has put to use her years of experience to create pieces that are meant to put a smile on any wearer's face. Her jewelry is lighthearted, fun, and unique. It is strongly inspired by her worldwide travels and Verena hopes that when you wear one of her pieces, it will inspire you to embark on your own adventures, because if not now, when?

Additional policies and FAQs
In regards to my materials used...
I am a goldsmith by trade and am used to working in fine jewelry using high end precious metals. All my pieces sold here on Etsy are hand made by myself using only sterling silver, 18k yellow and rose gold as well as rhodium, to prevent your silver piece from tarnishing over time.
Many of my pieces are plated with a layer of 18k yellow or rose gold over sterling silver. With time this will wear off slightly where the metal rubs. There is no way to prevent that but don’t worry, your piece will just become a slightly softer gold tone and will still look as beautiful as on the first day!
My “blackened” pieces are made of oxidized sterling silver. This will also wear slightly overtime exposing shiny silver highlights. It is supposed to do that and will only enhance the look of your piece!
All silver “colored” pieces are made from rhodium plated sterling silver. Rhodium is a precious metal which will give your silver piece the beautiful look of white gold but also prevents the silver from oxidization over time, a chemical reaction between silver and oxygen, which turns your silver a brownish/blackish color. So your piece will stay as beautiful as when you first received it!
