NEW!! Steampunk Inspired Jewelry Line

23 Jun

Based on the Victorian perspective on fashion, steampunk is a fusion of science fiction, fantasy and technology. Steampunk design emphasizes a balance between tool and decoration. This week marks the launch of a steampunk inspired necklace and bracelet collection at Purplefreesia Designs. Our ETSY shop (click here for a direct link) presents functional gadgets with a fanciful twist. Using our signature Swarovski crystal elements along with antique bronze charms and handmade resin cameos, our jewelry is handmade in our studio in Ontario, Canada. Please visit our ETSY shop to view our full line – we ship worldwide. Watch for new jewelry pieces every week as we introduce new materials such as pyrite, silver, gold and glass.

Handcrafted Bouquet Jewellery

11 Apr

This week I have opened up another chapter in my floral designing career!  May I present to you my new online store,    purplefreesiadesigns.com – a site  featuring handcrafted wedding bouquet jewellery designed by yours truly.

Bouquet jewellery is in the fashion forefront yet its elegance is timeless. By enhancing your bridal flowers with crystal accents and silver tones you will create a one of a kind look for your wedding day.  At  purplefreesia designs you will find modern interpretations of jewellery inspired by centuries ago –  unique genres such as steampunk and Marie Antoinette to name a few . Each piece is handcrafted to easily incorporate within your wedding florals. Bouquet jewellery is that final detail in completing your picture perfect look.

I have never hidden the fact that I am an artist not a computer person, and so this is where I must give credit where credit is due.  An infinite number of  “thank-you’s”  must go out to Julie Surian (web designer, piano teacher, my sister), who never once complained when I asked her to change things a million times; Kevin JohnsonSenior Director of Operations, Lavalife and best friend ever) for his superior knowledge of  building secure websites and for never making any of my questions feel stupid; and  Jada Magdalena (model) who never once complained about how cold it was outside during the many photoshoots.  Purplefreesiadesigns.com is nothing short of beautiful thanks to the efforts of these great people.

Here is a small sampling of some of the images featured at purplefreesiadesigns.com .  For the total experience click here!
