I recently had the pleasure of spending the day with Toronto-based jewellery designers, Shah Emily Noaman. I had no idea what I was in for when we set this up, but damn! This woman is an inspiration and half, I left feeling like there’s nothing I can’t do… unfortunately, now I want to do everything lol.
While I was there, I was treated to a preview of the 3SHAHS Spring/Summer 11 collection, “Venus Upon Havana” which features pieces that were inspired by a recent trip to Cuba. The collection will be available at the end of this month at her store- Bask Tanning and Boutique at 1365 Yonge Street, as well as other retailers in the GTA.
Wanna know why I enjoyed spending the day with her? Because she’s totally awesome. Great personality, so much passion, AND because she let me play with all the jewellery till my heart’s content! You can see that she has a wicked eye for detail as every piece features something cute and unique, not to mention the endless splashes of bright colours! Win and Win.
The spring collection features bold patterns, a vibrant selection of rings, bracelets, necklaces, cocktail rings, earrings, in lovely shades of terracotta, aqua and mocha, sage. Each piece features a hand-selected semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, and mixed metals. For those of us who love putting flowers in our hair, this collection offers a wonderful selection of seductive floral accents.
Here’s a sneak peek at the collection.
I’m totally ready the Gems in The City fundraiser; food, drinks, live music, a fashion show and silent auction, to celebrate the “Venus Upon Havana” collection. I’m there. All this goodness and more, will be happening at Nyood Restaurant on Wednesday April 27th. Proceeds from the event will be going towards the WoodGreen Housing Help Centre.
Thanks to Shah Emily for allowing me to get lost in her lovely world, I had so much fun.
peace, love and health
