Museo Del Oro

When I introduced gold into my recent pieces it got me thinking about how inspired I was by The Museum of Gold. Last year my husband and I went to visit his hometown of Bogota, Colombia. One of the places that he took me to was this museum. 
At the time I took a ton of photos in the museum of the beautiful pieces and the way that they were displayed. So on the topic of gold here are some photos from inside the museum of some of my favourite pieces. There is a lot more information available about the history on the museum website


This shape really interested and in the gift shop they sell cast replicas of some of the pieces with information about which time period they’re from. I thought that these earrings below were the perfect souvenir. 

Local-E Pop Up Shop


This Sunday wraps up the end of Local-E Pop Up Shop in Gastown, Vancouver. Curated by Lexi of Daub + Design, this shop carries an assortment of locally made jewellery, swim wear, clothing, baby goods and handbags.

The shop is located on Cambie St, between West Cordova and Water St. All designers work shifts in the shop so it’s always a surprise who you’re going to meet. A few of the clothing designers had booths at the One of a Kind Vancouver Show which was last weekend so now they have more stock in store. Last Friday night we hosted a customer appreciation night and 24 Hours Vancouver stopped by — as you can see in the Dec.13th edition below:
