STACKED

The more the merrier!  
Power in numbers!  
Three’s a crowd but more is a party!
etc!
What I’m getting at here, is that sometimes one just isn’t enough.  It is, after all, the loneliest number.  So unless you are a hobbit (hehe), perhaps your one ring could use some company.  To prove that point, we had another stacking ring workshop in the studio yesterday.  The ladies, Kristina and Kim, were very worthy goldsmiths-in-training.
Here they are hard at work:

Here is amazing result of all their benchwork:

If you can’t make it in for a workshop, never fear!  We have a great selection of stacking rings, already made just for you.  Take a look:

Have a great week!

The Next Jewellery Social!

The Jewellery Social was originally an event created to get the jewellers in Toronto all excited about SNAG the jewellery conference that took place in May of 2013. It was an effective way to get us together and acting as a group to help put on this extensive conference but post SNAG it did not seem to have a purpose anymore. 
It took a few months but we realized it was an event the jewellery community was crying out for so we made some tweaks to the format and relaunched it at Jewel Envy in October. 
This new format has rotating venues and themes to make it exciting and inclusive to jewellers, students, industry suppliers and jewellery lovers alike. 

For the next little while it will be four times a year but maybe will become a monthly fixture again in the future. We have big plans for this little event so be sure to sign up for the emails here. or ask to join the Jewellery Social -Toronto group on Facebook


The next social is called “SHOP Studio” which is an art jewellery
show and sale. This event will represent the work of six artists including Ivanne
Binetruy, Shao-Pin Chu, Charles Funnell, Emily Gill, Heba Kandil and Elizabete
Ludviks.

The opening reception will be on Saturday, December 7th, from
6pm to 10pm.
What is really exciting about this event is the artist’s talk
with Charles Funnell at 7pm so be sure to drop in early so you do not miss
it!

The exhibition will run from the opening date until December
24th.
Location: Shao Design Studio, 35 Golden Avenue, Toronto. (416)777-1313. 

Please call Shao Design Studio for opening hours during the scheduled
event.

Rings of Jewel Envy: WORN

Sterling silver,vitreous enamel on copper, uvarovite ring made by Alexis Kostuk of Glaciale.  Uvarovite (the druzy-like gem on the right) is a type of garnet – the colour is even more unreal in person!

Studded Spinner made by Amanda Henderson of Jewelust.  Sterling Silver.  The studded component spins within the ring, a great piece if you love kinetic jewellery (is there anyone who doesn’t?!)

Gothika ring by Amber Thomas-Penchoff.  Sterling silver.  This ring has an architectural look that calls to mind the Iconic Chrysler building – she has even made earrings in this series of work.

Play ring by Chia Chien Tsai of Ellolite.  Made with a sterling silver formed into a seed pod that has a burst of colour added with resin and sculpey.  She has several colour combinations available! 

Big ring by Gillian Batcher of Pash Jewellery.  Sterling silver and amethyst.  The angle of the gem placement on this ring makes it a fantastic standout piece – there are a few left in her collection each one big and fabulous!

Saucer ring by Iona Alexandra Jewellery.  A bold piece made with sterling silver.

Thick hammered ring by Lauren Hanham.  A sterling silver band with a satin hammer finish – the texture is subtle and lovely in person.

Ring by Sasha Oda.  Sterling silver ring with a unique tribal style.

Bridge ring by Young Ko of Koko Bijoux.  Sterling silver and citrines.  The cut and colour of these gems are spectacular.

 Please drop by for a visit to try any of these and other rings on yourself!
