The past two weeks have gone by so fast, and yet it feels like so much has happened in that short amount of time. In case you didn’t know, I organized my own tour, where lovely people booked personal ring consultation appointments with me in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. It was a big leap for me, as I wasn’t sure what the response would be, as well as I’ve never heard of anyone else do anything like this before! I’m glad to report that it was a huge success. I met up with people who had previously gotten engagement rings and needed wedding bands, I met up with people who wanted custom work, and I met up with a few folks who are looking for surprise engagement rings (I’ll never tell who!).
Calgary, AB: Hotel Arts
Edmonton: Little Brick YEG
Vancouver: L’Hermitage Hotel
I also had an opportunity to shoot with Cory Johnn when I was in Edmonton. Cory Johnn is an extremely talented photographer who took my vision of my Discovery Collection (launch soon, yay!), and brought it to life through his photos. I have been working super extra hard this year, and I’m thrilled to show you everything so very very soon.
Thanks so much to all of you who came out and supported me on my tour. I had an absolute blast and going on tour is something I’m definitely going to do again. If you want me in your city for the next one, please let me know!
The Andronyk Jewelry Discovery Tour will be in full swing soon! If you’re on my mailing list, you were the first to know and got first dibs on appointments.
So what exactly is the Discovery Tour? Well, I’m going to be in 3 cities starting on October 8th meeting up with you for a no-pressure ring try-on funtastic time. If you’ve been eyeing anything up and want to know what it looks like in person or what the proportions would be on your finger, or if you want something custom made, this is a great time to have a personal consultation with me.
My new Discovery Collection will also be available for preview for those who book appointments. I’ve been working on this follow up collection for a long time and can’t wait to share it with you.
So if you’re in Calgary, Edmonton, or Vancouver, I’d love to meet you and have a chat about rings, life, or your cat. You can find out all of the details here, and you can always feel free to ask questions by contacting me.
Fall is coming quickly; prairie harvest begins soon, and that means a lot of hustle and bustle around here! Heavy machinery, cooking delicious food, and preserving my delicious garden bounty is all happening alongside new work in my studio.
I’m rounding out my Infinite Collection with more pieces to complement, mix & match, and give more options to those who haven’t quite found what they are searching for.

Western Living Magazine announced their finalists for the Designer of the Year awards, and I made the shortlist in the Fashion category. I am absolutely thrilled to be a finalist among so much talent!

Spring is always a beautiful and busy time around the Andronyk Workshop. Not only is it seeding time at the farm and prepping time for our giant garden, but it’s a great time to take a trip and see all of the most excellent people wanting to try some rings on for shows.
This year is a bit of a slow down show-down year for me; I’ve been extremely busy with custom and bespoke work which I absolutely love. In order for me to get everything sketched, created, and sent out, I’ve cut out a lot of shows that I normally do in the spring so I can stay sustainable and maintain a high quality experience for my existing customers.
My only show this spring will be the New Craft Coalition in Calgary on May 22 and 23rd! I’ve only done this show once before, but I had such a great time and the response was so overwhelming that I really wanted to visit the amazing Calgary community again. Going to shows as a maker is always incredible because all of the makers become friends along the way. Come and check out leather worker Flight Path Designs, textile artist Amanda Parker, children’s clothing designer Sweet Jane Studios, cashmere upcycler Winterluxe, textile designer Natalie Gerber, ceramic artist Cathy Terepocki, and handmade eco-clothing by Dear Pony.
I’ll be bringing some striking pieces in sterling silver, as well as my Infinite Collection made to order, and a few exclusive rings in 14k gold. I can’t wait to see you all then!
There’s something really special, touching, and humbling about having a person or couple ask you to make them a ring that symbolizes so much. I really thrive on the experience of creating a ring with my hands that they will enjoy for a lifetime, infuse with happy memories, love, and togetherness, and then pass on to the generations that come after.
Here is a little collage of some of those rings I’ve made over the past few months!
If you’re thinking about a custom piece, please feel free to contact me.
