For Shannon Munro, each of her handmade pieces is inspired by her experience of love and romance. Working from her home studio in Victoria, Munro uses high-end metals and materials to fashion her original designs.

“All of my jewelry is created from the heart in a quest to make unique and tangible narratives of love, positivity and adoration come to life,” says Munro, who will release a new line of pendants for the holiday season.

Sand & Silver — the jewelry line by sisters Caron and Michelle Somers of Two Blooms — showcases simple, geometric designs. 

“As passionate metalsmiths, we meticulously handcraft every piece in Victoria, where we are inspired daily by our island and the ever- changing trends,” Caron says. “Our jewelry is minimalist yet bold with a geometric emphasis to match one’s uniqueness.”
