There's a new store in North Vancouver that looks quite nice. The Mill is a furniture and interior design shop that features vintage finds, textiles, upholstery and gift items such as cards and jewellery with a focus on local and handmade goods from the Vancouver and Pacific Northwest area. Looks like a nice place to visit!
Kari Woo creates simply beautiful sterling silver jewellery such as the pendants shown here. Some whimsical, some graphical, her earrings and pendants are expertly crafted. For those of you in Calgary, you might remember Kari as one of the founders of Influx Jewellery Gallery, my neighbour in Art Central. Though Influx has a new owner (please visit Amanda at Influx for contemporary Canadian jewellery), Kari has moved to Canmore to raise her little boy and is still making work. Visit Kari's Etsy shop to peruse her wares.
