I am very excited to announce that my new Infinite Collection is launching on May 28th, just a few short days away!
The Infinite Collection is a selection of handmade artisan engagement rings made from 100% recycled gold and conflict-free stones. I have been trying to make my jewelry business as ec0-friendly as possible, and a huge part of that is sourcing materials that are sustainable and don’t contribute to environmental harm or human suffering.
I’ve been showing sneak peeks on Instagram, so please follow along and check it out!
Rachel Bingham, jewelry designer extraordinaire at BangBang Bijoux, was recently profiled in Vue Weekly for the spring season.
When asked “What’s your go-to piece of jewelry?”, she picked her engagement ring. I couldn’t be more happy to have made a piece for her that she wears every day.
In addition the snow melting and being able to start my garden, springtime brings SPRING CRAFT SHOWS!
First stop, Saskatoon on April 25th.
Come by and say hello… I’ll measure your ring size free of charge!
Flock and Gather Springtime Handmade Market
St. Joseph’s Parish Hall
535 – 8th Street East (corner of Broadway Ave. & 8th Street E.)
Friday April 25 (4pm to 10pm)

Making this ring was such a fun adventure. I love doing intense planning and secret scheming with someone in order to create a beautiful piece that their partner will cherish.
This is Rachel’s ring. It was a complete surprise, and she LOVES it.
Congratulations, Rachel & Chris!
I’m busy working away taking photos and writing descriptions of my pieces to fill up my online shop! Stay tuned, should have items in there in the next few days.
Until then, keep warm!
Toronto, I have too many great things to say about you, but FIRST, here are a few of my vendor highlights from the show:
Hand and Shadow is a gorgeously detailed line of screenprinted clothing and textiles from Hamilton, ON.
Bookhou: a multidisciplinary studio that made me want to buy everything at their booth. They do everything from furniture to textiles to bags and home decor.
Grace Eunmi Lee is a ceramicist who blew my mind with her “micro-organisms”. As I looked through photos of her exhibitions, I was amazed by the scale of her work.
My booth neighbor Meagan Gartland of Threshing Designs is a photographer who transfers her naturalistic and wild photos onto various textiles.
I wish I had more room in my suitcases to bring home some exhibitor’s work; it was heartbreaking to not take home these porcelain lanterns by Atelier Make.
The One of A Kind show in Toronto is well-organized, the vendors are talented and helpful to noobs, and the customers were super receptive to my work (and most noticed I was new!).
Thanks to all who came out to visit, chat, and tried on some outrageous rings. I can’t wait to make all the custom creations you’ve ordered!
