the littlest gift shop is open!

At this time every year since we've launched we've put together some new additions to the line. this year isn't any different... except that this year rather than joining the few local Christmas sales to launch the new pieces, we've started our artist operated store front, GIFT SHOP.

Together with Heather Martin from MONO and Alex Henderson from HENDERSON DRY GOODS, we've gathered a group of like minded designers for whom we each respect highly for their craft and success locally. And with the help of a generous philanthropist and their space we set up shop, albeit a tiny shop... brimming with great gift items all of which are under $100.

This year we added some great pieces we are pretty fond of ourselves.
Stacking rings, stud earrings and a simple pendant all in oxidized bronze.

Come check them out along with a few familiar pieces, they'll all be available for the next three weekends at the shop at 8 east Cordova in Gastown, and afterwards they should be available at any of our supportive retailers.

So come down, check out all the beautiful gifts and hopefully we are personally in to greet you!

new additions!

As we did with our launch last year, we displayed new pieces at Toque this past weekend.
Lindsay and I were pleased to showcase four new pendants based on the good old english hunt...
Each on a 30" chain, we thought it was a nice follow up to the shotgun.

The hound mask in oxidized silver, hangs upside-down. The fox stole, in antiqued bronze, hangs pinched at it's midsection.

The fox paw also in antiqued bronze, and to echo the dog mask is the fox mask in oxidized silver.

Look for them in stores as soon as this weekend, and in addition we hope to get some earrings out before Christmas.
Thanks again to all those that made it our to the Western Front!

Once again Lindsay and i will be at the "TOQUE" ANNUAL CHRISTMAS SALE.
It's been a year since the launch of the silver line and we hope to see you all once again.
We've been working hard to get some new pieces together that we're excited about...hopefully all comes together smoothly and we'll be able to showcase them together with the familiar planes and such.
Start shopping for yourself and loved ones, and stop by to say hello!

Toque opens friday november 27th (from 6pm-9pm)and continues on saturday december 28th (11am-5pm)at the Western Front, 303 east 8th ave.
