The Beckerman fashion designers were tres elegante for the British Invasion celebration at the Bay Toronto last Thursday. They honoured crowns from our collection that were fit for a queen, designed by Robert Sorrell. Sorrell, one of our favourite contemporary designers, works on each piece individually. His jewels are museum quality. I personally have many in my private collection.
Bravo to Caillianne and Samantha Beckerman for their style and delight in dressing! They are great. Please check out their blog for a unique take on contemporary style. They continue to delight us.

I lectured to a wonderful, talented group of beaders last night. They loved the slides of Coppola e Toppo, Haskell and the other Greats. I am sure the designs and the bead work will inspire them to create masterpieces of their own! They are having a Fall Fair on November 6th (10am-5pm) and 7th (11am-5pm):
Location: CNIB, 1929 Bayview (at Kilgour)
Admission: $5 per day, $8 for two.
It should be fun! There are demos, classes, shopping, and so much more.
Check out some wonderful beaded jewels on our site.

Lea Stein is one of the most notable and innovative costume jewelry designers of the 20th century with a signature geometric look. With sculpted laminated celluloid she created stunning shapes, figurals and colour combinations which are highly coveted collectors' items today. Even though 2 pieces may look identical, there are sure to be small differences, making each person's Lea Stein a one of a kind treasure. Take a look at some of our favourite brooches by her today!

It's the first of the month again, which means we've gathered a special grouping of treasures from CT SeleCT. This month, we're featuring Fimo brooches from the 80s. These stunning works of art just go to show that jewelry does not need to be made from precious materials in order to be fabulous! Rather, it is about how the craftsperson uses the media on hand. These worked out fantastically!
