Spent an absolutely wonderful 11 days with the best customers, Green Bijou team, Artisans, Show Organizers and staff that a girl could ask for! Welcome to our new clients and much love to our existing and loyal customer base. We couldn't do any of this without you!
Everyone is invited to the Art Gallery of Guelph on Tuesday, September 29, where I will be hosting a one hour information session. Doors will open at 11:30 and the talk will be from 12 - 1 p.m.
I will be speaking about my vintage jewelry business. This event is part of a new series that is kicking off at the Gallery called “Shop Talk”. These talks will feature a guest speaker once a month whose work is in the Gallery Shop. All are welcome.
Information can be found on our gallery website. Parking will be available at the AGG.
Many thanks and hope you can drop in for the hour. Refreshments will be provided by the volunteer members of the Gallery.
Don’t forget to visit the Shop during your visit. We have some wonderful works of art that may be rented for as little as $30/month.
A warm heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our clients, neighbours, team and show staff for a wonderful One of a Kind Show & Sale! So thankful for the many new clients and kind words about what One of a Kind means to them. Also thrilled to be part of a video segment from Independent Filmmaker Sasha Don't Sleep.

Some pretty beautiful pieces came my way for custom work, thanks to mother and daughter duo Ginette and Vanessa. Antique bell shaped rosary crystals, so rare, set in sterling, which Ginette inherited from her mother. I had never come across a rosary of this quality before in my travels. Also provided were a strand of antique pearls given to her on her 18th birthday. Thrilled to work with such items, I may have been as excited as my clients. We talked through the possible designs and through emailed photo mock-ups, decided on final details. With the addition of some other vintage pieces, we created a necklace, bracelet and set of earrings for mother and daughter, each with their own personalized colours. Take a look at the beloved before picture of the rosary and the personalized after pieces. My thanks to Vanessa and Ginette for working with me on updating their personal treasures!

Vintage silver plated Sarah Coventry butterfly, on brass chains with turquoise bead accents. Proceeds from the event will support the deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing people that CHS sees every day in search of servic
