Splurge or Save!


At JewelEnvy we share the working space between 12 resident goldsmiths and we have all nationalities! Am French and this collection is inspired by the Parisian doors, so naturally I called it « Paris ». 

Am looking after the retail today, come and say hello, we would love to meet you and for you to try it for yourself!, We also have plenty of other amazing pieces....

The « Paris » Collection by Ivane Thiebaut

Saying hello to Canada!

Hi, I'm Mauricio, recently moved to Canada from Colombia to learn about fashion business and to build my own, Canada offers a huge variety of sourcing for materials, semiprecious gemstones can be found at hiking, exploring and free mining and can be worked into beautiful pieces, something I look forward to include in my work.

I'm really looking forward to everyone to get to know and fall in love with my work!

Harem Royal

I just came across a jewellery design house called Harem Royal, and wanted to share some of their work with you. The richness of the colours is so amazing, and softens the sharp lines and somewhat mechanical nature of the pieces. The style makes me think of steampunk insects, beautiful yet dangerous. What inspiring work! It is so refreshing to come across artists whose style is so vastly different from my own - it reminds me that this world is filled with so many talented people, and so many beautiful things. 

Happy Sunday everybody!

Why we love spring!

We love spring here at Jewel Envy....

Flowers are in full bloom, butterflies are flying and new jewellery collections also come to life after a long winter and the mad rush of the year end and valentine's day! Inspiration from mother nature is shining all around us, and in Toronto, it is also the time gloves, scarves and hats come off at last and your jewellery and maybe a bit of skin can be revealed.

Spring is the time of weddings, parties and patio lounging, and today is also mother's day!

Happy Mother's day top all the wonderful mums out there!

Flowers are wonderful but jewellery last forever.... why not get her or treat yourself today to some new pieces of jewellery

There is still time to come and check them out in person....I will be at the studio today until 6pm!

Mother's Day is next weekend~!

Before our classes would run as frequently as they do here now at Jewel Envy the goldsmiths would invite our moms to the studio for a creative day of jewellery making. A day to bond and be creative together and take on the roll of teaching our moms a thing or two ;o)
Alexis Kostuk (me), Rhonda Kostuk (my mom!) Marusha Kostuk (my sister :oP)
As the studio has evolved we have reserved the day to teach other people's moms... if you're searching for an experience you know your mom will love go here to sign up for a 1/2 day class on Mother's Day. - Alexis

Photo Shoot

Dear Sunday Readers,

Last Monday April 23rd we had a photo shoot at the studio.
The photos and group shots will be used on the update J.E. website.
The photographer and his assistant created a mood-board that guided us through the entire shoot process, keeping us on track. In a studio and a jewelry place, that was easy. The location that is one of the most important parts of a successful photo shot could not be better, Jewel Envy has a great layout, it is full of light and the great pieces that are display made such a beautiful background for the photo shoot.  
It was a fun day; we all have new photos for our websites.

Have a nice Sunday.

What is this magic?!

Recently while browsing Instagram looking at gems (as one does) I came across something that sent me down a mini google rabbit hole. On Tatum Gems feed I stopped scrolling to oogle at a unique gem (Inner dialogue: "What is this magic?!") I initially thought that it was maybe human-made material but after reading the comment I was excited to have come across a gem that I had never heard of before: Rainbow Lattice Sunstone.

Found in a remote area of Australia, gemmologists researching the gem have found the gems are a rare combination of phenomena including aventurescence (as seen in sunstone), adularescence (as seen in moonstone) and a distinctive lattice pattern created by its inclusions. Read more here!

What do you think about the gem? Let me know in comments!
