I will be offering a selection of sterling silver rings, necklaces and earrings, many pieces with a variety of semi-precious stones.

Hollyhawk is line of uniquely handcrafted, versatile leather accessories and jewellery. Each item is individually made in my studio located in Victoria, BC, inspired from themes of nature, vintage imagery using leather-working techniques both traditional and inventive.
One of my greatest joys, to share with others, is creating unique pieces that are functional and creatively designed. Leather, as a material, has been extra appealing for it's durability, texture and versatility. These items I've handcrafted into leather accessories, such as wallets, cases, cuffs and jewellery, are embellished with images inspired by nature, that have been hand printed on premium leather and raw brass using a block printing process with indelible inks. Including a specially developed digital photo process, printed directly onto the leather. Quality leather has been selected, mostly from leftover production runs or odd job lots, any small imperfections are used to the best of my ability in creative ways.
K-Bo Jewelry aspires to bring smiles & joy to those who wear our elegant handcrafted pieces.
We truly believe that jewelry is best worn when it makes you feel like your best self.
I am a silversmith born and raised in Victoria, BC who handcrafts a variety of sterling silver and 14K gold-fill jewelry -- rings and hoops being my current favourites. I create pieces using basic jewelry hand tools, incorporating beautiful and unique gemstones which I typically purchase from local/small businesses or collect while traveling. The talented silversmith, Judith Hirczy, was my teacher for three years in Victoria. She gave me the skills to help my passion flourish into this business. My inspiration resides in the sea, the sky and far-away lands. I am particularly drawn to the blue and iridescent stones as they remind me of the ocean that we are so fortunate to have as our backyard on the West Coast. I do hope you find something that makes you smile.
Left Shore Creative
Handmade genuine and vegan leather earrings with colours and designs inspired by the beauty of the West Coast.
My name is Allison Smith and I'm the editor in chief of a monthly community magazine called Seaside Magazine. I'm also the mom to a six-year-old girl. I've always loved crafting, often making Christmas and birthday gifts for family and friends. Christmas Craft Fair season has always been a highlight of my year, and I dreamed of one day being at one of those craft fairs, selling my own products. Accommodating my daughter's daycare schedule and a full-time job over the last few years has taken up all of my time but now, with her in first grade, I've finally been able to take some time for myself again.
My earrings were originally all vegan leather, but recently I've been experimenting with genuine leather as well. The fun colours and patterns of vegan leather combined with the weight and structure of genuine leather is an ideal combination and has grown the possibilities of what I'm able to create. My earrings are all sterling silver or 14k gold plated.

Radjuli Leather Designs
Radjuli creates long lasting and unique accessories primarily using leather that is off cut from other local manufacturers, preventing these scraps from entering the waste stream. Upholstery scraps become wallets, pouches and vests; seconds from the boot factory become unique and fabulous bags. Radjuli belts are cut from full grain cowhides which have been rejected due to marks, scars or dye irregularities. Turning these flaws into features is what makes each item truly one of a kind. Each Radjuli item is designed, cut and sewn in my studio on the traditional territory of the Lkwungen People, commonly referred to as beautiful Victoria, B.C.
Raven & Firefligh
Raven & Firefligh has been creating one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry for ten years. Over time, maker Sienna discovered that the majority of artisans and customers are unaware of the complex ethical issues involved in the mining and manufacturing process of gems, crystals, minerals and metals. She has made that the cornerstone of Raven & Firefligh, and she sources all materials either directly from the miner or mine. Sienna loves to travel so this gives her a perfect excuse to visit some of the mines in person. For those with skin sensitivities, she also ensures that she only uses precious metals that are EU-certified. Whether your style is bold and dramatic or fine and classic, Raven & Firefligh has something for you to cherish for years to come.

Swallow Jewellery is based out of Victoria BC and we make jewellery pieces that are inspired by nature objects and vintage items.
We make silver jewellery that is imprinted with nature and vintage objects. They are fine silver (99% silver) and we use a material called precious metal clay (PMC). Our nature pieces are imprinted with things we come across on our walks or trips in and around Victoria and Vancouver Island. We take molds using silicone and create jewellery pieces that represent the beautiful nature that surround us.
Some of the example pieces we make are whale bone ring (Metchosin), honeycomb necklace (Qualicum Falls), blackberry earrings (Galloping Goose Trail in Victoria), hummingbird feather necklace (Gabriola Island) and so on. We also have a huge appreciation for vintage items so we make vintage lace and button jewellery using the same techniques mentioned above.
We also make completely custom palm print jewellery and people can place orders at markets. We make a mold of palm print using silicone mold and based on that mold, we are able to make truly custom pieces such as palm print necklaces, rings, bangles or earrings.
Twig & Boat
Our wife and wife team create beautifully handcrafted items based around upcycled sheepskin and off cut leather.

At Twig & Boat, we are proud to have developed a reuse program for our booties. At the speed children grow, we’re aware that booties for babies and little ones aren’t needed for too long, therefore, we’d like to encourage you to Hand Them On to someone you know that could use them for their little ones. Or if not, Hand Them In and receive a 15% discount on your next pair. We will then wash and refurbish your pre-loved booties, and donate them to a long standing community organization that will provide them to young children in need.
