TGIF...

What a long week! I FINALLY sent a new batch of jewelry to Victoire in Ottawa. I had been working on alot of new pieces that I'm excited to finally release to the store. So if you're in the neighborhood, check out the store because they have lovely dresses and tons of Canadian designer goods, perfect for Christmas shopping.

Tonight I played around with some of the cabochons that I bought at the Gem and Mineral show last week and experimented with new shapes. I am extremely happy with how my triangle stone ring turned out :) I also received a handful of Herkimer diamonds and will be making more Trio Cluster rings throughout the week.
 This weekend is the One of A Kind Show in Toronto and as usual I am always on a lookout to support local artists. I hope to find some awesome Christmas gifts! If you're around make sure to check it out!


Have a good weekend!

CSFootprints Jewelry Lookbook 2013

I've put together a small Lookbook of my current jewelry with my beautiful model and little cousin, Jane Yang. I had so much fun shooting her over the weekend, trying different hairstyles and outfits. Don't you think she looks awesome?

Enjoy!

The behind the scenes of the trio cluster rings...

My favorite creation thus far are my Trio Cluster rings. I can't help but add more bling to my rings right now and I have been experimenting with stones and Herkimer diamonds these past couple of weeks. Luckily the Toronto Gem Show is happening this weekend and I will be finding more treasures to work with. So stay tuned for perhaps new stone rings in the shop...

Lookbook Sneak Peek!

My collection of jewelry is not very big. In fact, I do not have new jewelry for every season nor do I have a real theme. Everything I make is in small quantities based on what my mood is and whether I would wear it out myself. I don't really like selling jewelry that I would never wear, so I am actually very sad to depart with my pieces. However, I know that a happy customer who actually enjoys wearing my jewelry is the best feeling in the world.

I hope you enjoy my lookbook that will be available in the next couple of days. Here's a quick peek at what's coming!

Have a great week everyone!

CSFootprints is back in business (finally)

This year was a busy year. I got a new job, moved out of my cozy studio apartment and gave up my jewelry making space, bought a house in the suburbs, got married, went for my honeymoon, and finally FINALLY was able to set up my very own jewelry studio in the basement.

I was aching to work on new pieces and just really needed the right space to set up shop. So, I'm so happy to announce that my Etsy shop is now back in business with some NEW additions! (yay!)

There's still alot of setting up to do in my studio, but it is a working progress~ I am loving my new workbench!
 I have been working on alot of new pieces which will be added to my Etsy shop this week. I have been going nuts with rings and stones, which I have been happily testing them out.   
More updates to come!
