I'm incredibly grateful for all the press we've been receiving in the past few days. We've been featured in Toronto Life as one of the top 15 finds at the One of a Kind Show, and a photo of our turquoise feather necklace has shown up in the pages of Now Newspaper. I never dreamed that I would be able to achieve all of this when I posted my first listing on Etsy.

Thank you to my fans and supporters for stopping by my booth at the One of a Kind Show. I love meeting every one of you. It never gets old to hear how you love the pieces or to see your faces light up when you try them on.  I'll be there until Sunday in the Etsy section.

Thank you. I truly mean it.

I'm constantly collecting photos of new ink on arms, thighs, and legs and they somehow manage to end up on my pinboards. A lot of my work is heavily influenced by tattoos that are illustrative and artistic, or dreamy and romantic.

My long cuffs have imagery that is very similar to tattoos. Often evoking a moment caught in time as the Bird in Flight Cuff, or embodying a type of animal as in the Peacock Cuff. Maybe one day I will get a tattoo, but wearing one of my cuffs is perfect for me.

I'm always happily surprised every time I see my leather accessories in a photo shoot. I finally got a chance to meet fashion stylist, Emilie Debonville, after exchanging emails back and forth a few months ago. I love how the gloves and arm harness add a bit of edge to each outfit but doesn't overpower the whole look, just as how I imagined they would be worn.

Studio Space

My studio away from home is an old Elementary classroom shared with other creative designers located in the Mile End. I love the remaining chalkboards and lockers still in the hallway. The space reminds me of my fashion schooling at Ryerson. During deadlines we would be in the sewing lab all night, sometimes taking short naps underneath the cutting table. If we got caught sleeping, our profs would have shut us down.

I've been hard at work producing enough inventory for the One of a Kind show. Working, creating and designing in this studio space has proven to be very productive and inspiring.

This is where the magic happens..

I've been noticing a return to plastic, resin and acrylic in clear and transparent materials. Clearly these Lucite and plastic accessories are much more modern and sophisticated the second time around.

Though I mainly work with curvilinear lines and organic forms, the simple shape of a triangle repeated in different patterns has such a bold and striking impact. Yes, math and fashion can be sexy together!
