In honor of Canada Day (July 1st), Cable Car Couture has devoted today’s post to three wonderful Canadian jewelry designers from Vancouver, Canada–my beloved hometown. It is a hub of creativity and artistry, and these jewelry designers are excellent examples of that.
Canadian Jewelry Designer #1: Bella-Bijou Jewelry
The designer of Bella-Bijou Jewelry, Jaime Pickering, says that most of her designs come to her in her dreams. She uses the pure metals–sterling silver, 14K gold, brass–instead of plated metals.
