Like any good Canadian, I love the wintertime. Fresh snow, rosy cheeks, and wool toques are just a part of life up here, and sweater weather is always an exciting time of year. But also, like any normal person, I am SO DELIRIOUSLY HAPPY when the weather pokes its head above zero, even if for just a brief respite. This weekend has brought a bit of rain, but it also brought milder temperatures that already has me daydreaming of springtime.
So I thought I would share a few pieces that brighten my day and make me think of sunshine, warm breezes, and flowers in full bloom.

Time is running out to purchase work of Ivane Thiebaut’s Canadiana series, June’s featured work on the recently added Jewel Envy online shop. As a recent newcomer to Canada, Ivane fully embraces her new home’s landscapes, icons and culture and draws on them for inspiration in her design and jewelry work. Each piece in her collection acts as a glimpse into her relationship with her surroundings and are easily relatable to all who have visited this beautiful country, or are lucky enough to call it home.

Take a closer look under the “shop” page.
Ivane’s pieces are both timeless and fashionable, and perfect to commemorate Canada’s 150th aniversery.
