A local favourite!
Shirleybird Jewellery was born from a family tradition of creativity. The creator of this line of jewellery is Kristin and she like all the women in her family, has a true artistic spirit. Kristin's nana was the namesake for Shirleybird; a very creative woman who loved all things that sparkled. Kristin has always loved to work with her hands and has an amazing eye for jewellery. It only seemed natural to turn her artistic talents to jewellery making and so Shirleybird Jewellery came to be. What was at first a small line with a few very popular pieces, has now evolved into two distinct lines with many gorgeous styles to choose from.
Each piece is hand crafted and the components have been carefully chosen with the idea that one could mix and match many of the styles. Being very budget conscious, Kristin has gone to much effort to keep the lines very affordable. Jewellery can be beautiful and affordable without sacrificing quality!
Karen Télio first discovered her passion for beads and precious metals during a trip to Asia. Already having her hands full as a neurosurgical nurse and raising 2 young children Karen started creating as only a hobby. She fast discovered this 'hobby' was an obsession and soon became her new career. Today Karen's work is displayed in over 35 boutiques in Western Canada. Karen Télio believes jewelery should enhance a woman's natural beauty, not overwhelm it. Karen is based in Vancouver BC where she continues her passion for travel, art and culture.
We feel lucky to carry her designs!
