National Jewel Day is a day known by few, but is exciting to celebrate all the same. Today represents a day to recognize not only the precious stones of your latest necklace or a special heirloom, but also to represent the gems of people who make them!
Think about your prized jewelry collection, that favourite pair of earrings, that newest necklace, or that sparkly bracelet. What makes them special?
As lovely as the jewels in our jewelry are, the true reason we love our favourite pieces is because of the story behind them and how they make us feel. As you are curating your own jewelry collection of pieces to love for a lifetime (or more), handmade jewelry will have a unique story like no other piece.
One of a kind jewelry pieces are unique by their very nature, as there is simply nothing else quite like them. The artisan maybe your child after a long day of crafting or a local designer you’ve stumbled across (that’s me!). Handmade unique pieces are special with their original features and design, and the unique opportunity to attach your own unique meaning to the piece.
The Eartha Gemstone Beaded Necklace is inspired by my trip to Dubai to see Expo 2020 and explore the values and traditions of different cultures. Visiting some of the African countries’ booths, I could see how they use gemstones as meaningful gifts. I wanted to add pearls to this necklace to show purity, innocence and love. This o beaded necklace is made up of a number of unique materials, including turquoise, aventurine, jade, freshwater pearls gemstones, and C beads. Jewelry designed, created by hand, and shipped in Vancouver, BC, ready for its story to begin.
The Ellie Gemstone Drop Earrings are inspired by one of my client’s custom requests. For this particular one, I chose green aventurine gemstones to highlight strength, confidence, courage and happiness. To make it more stylish and elegant, I added a dainty heart on top of the earrings to highlight details and sophistication.
Nothing pulls at the heart like an eye-catching design, meant to showcase the confidence from within. This gold jewelry, gemstone drop earrings are made up of Aventurine gemstones and freshwater pearls. As with all Standout Boutique’s designed pieces, the Ellie earrings are created with boldness and confidence in mind, coming from Vancouver, BC.
Olabisi is an Egyptian and Nigerian name for a girl who brings joy. In general, this name is associated with positivity and good fortune. This name made me think of a design that’s bold yet very feminine. I wanted to create a piece that brings joy and happy times.
Nothing pulls at the heart like an eye-catching design, meant to showcase confidence from within. This gold jewelry set is made up of none other than Onyx gemstone, known for its distinct banding patterns and durability. In addition, what truly makes this gemstone stand out from the crowd is what it stands out, being strength, protection, and grounding. Stand up proud and confident with this set, as its embedded in the jewelry and shining out of you.
