SHOP SATURDAY

Saturday has come and brought the sunshine. What a lovely day out there!
But if you prefer to stay indoors and look at pretty things online, here are a few things for you😙
These are from a collection by Judith Noldin, of IN Jewellery. Her pieces are bold and eclectic, and the unique stones and accent colours she uses in her work definitely stand out from the crowd.
Here are some of my favourites:
Each stone is so unique, and the irregular shapes and colours really catch the eye. These pieces are stunning on their own, but they also look so great together – not too matchy matchy, but not not matching, you know??

 These three rings contain stones found along Lake Ontario, and are set in sterling silver with either 14k or 18k gold accents. Left to right: $410 – $380 – $410

This pendant is set in sterling silver on a long snake chain. The stone is opalized wood with a small dangling citrine $540
Stop by shop this weekend and take a look at the rest of Judith’s collection on display. She is happy to do custom work as well!

Zef Radi of Radi Brothers

Happy Sunday! It’s a beautiful day out there, hopefully you are out and about and getting 
some much needed Vitamin D🌞
Some of us are inside though, working hard in the studio. Here is one of our worker bees, 
getting busy at the polishing lathe↓
It’s Zef Radi, of the Radi Brothers. He makes wonderfully delicate and detailed pieces, with 
mixed metals, lacy filigree, and vibrant stones.
 Here is a sneak peek of some of the pieces he has here at the studio:
 Sterling silver ring, with 18k/24k details $520
Sterling silver pendant, with 18/24k details and blue apatite $540
 Sterling silver dangling earrings, with 18k/24k details and pink sapphires $790
Drop by during store hours to see the rest of his collection in person. 
See you soon!

GET STONED

Oooh look at this stone! It’s Arizona Chrysocolla, and it is just so beautiful. I love earthy gemstones, and this one in particular, with the shades of blue and green, and the matrix for texture and depth… what a knockout! It almost looks like the bird’s eye view of a turquoise blue ocean. I wish I had a neverending supply of this stone…
 
So I do not have a neverending supply, but I’ve decided to use this stone for inlay work. I don’t have the knowledge or tools to cut stones myself, but luckily I know a great lapidarist (hi Chorlun!!!) who can get the job done. Inlay work involves cutting and shaping a slice of stone, to fit perfectly and seamlessly into your piece.
This is the ring I made with the stone:
If you have ever considered having a piece custom made, choosing your own rough stone is such an amazing way to make the piece truly unique and one of a kind. And if you didn’t already know, every single goldsmith here at Jewel Envy loves doing custom work:)
Happy weekend!

Custom work

Hello friends!
I know that the temperature has only begun its descent down the thermometer, but just a reminder that the holiday season is not that far off. Yikes!
If you’ve ever considered having jewellery custom-made for you, or for a loved one, now is a great time to get started. No time like the present, for getting presents haha! We love working one-on-one with you to create something special and unique; whatever your vision, we can help you make it a reality.
 
Made by Sasha Oda of Archerade, these gold stacking rings were designed for a very special friend. They were made using the gold and diamonds from sentimental jewellery, accumulated over a lifetime of birthdays and graduations. It was a wonderful way to incorporate special treasures into new pieces, instead of keeping them locked away in a jewellery box somewhere.
Of course, you don’t need to use old pieces to make something new. All you need is an idea, and we can take care of the rest!
Stop by the studio, or call to make an appointment. 
See you soon!
