Corsage Project Boutique Ball 2015

So happy to be able to donate some jewellery to The Corsage Project this year!  They help girls in the greater Toronto area who are having difficulty affording the expenses associated with attending their prom.  Prom is a rite of passage that every willing teen should get to enjoy!

Every year the Corsage Project has a team of stylists to help the girls "shop" the free formal wear that has been donated!  So pleased to add some MoonRox to that selection.  We donated these pretty floral earrings and much more!

Wishing the girls a glamorous and fun day at the ball!

Joint Bangle and Column Bracelet

Photo by Joseph Saraceno
When I found these most amazing frosted vintage beads in New York, I didn't know what I would do with them, but was excited about them and brought them back with me.  They are a clear acrylic with a frosted finish and gold lined centres that make them glow from the inside.  I have spent some time in the past couple years dealing with some back and neck pain, which is thankfully now much improved, so when these pieces came together I thought the spine influenced names were perfect.

On the left is the Joint Bangle featuring the frosted beads and a shiny Swarovski crystal that slide freely on a brass bangle.

On the right is the Column Bracelet that showcases numerous frosted beads aligned along a heavy brass chain.  This bracelet is adjustable to any size.

Check them out in the online shop!


It's Friday afternoon and I am counting down to the weekend!  It's supposed to be warm and sunny here in Toronto and I for one can't wait!

Have a great one!

Badlands + Nature Walk

Good Friday is a day where I am often working at the One of a Kind Show or with family.  This time around I got to take a day trip with a friend.  We drove out to the Badlands and toured around in the sunshine for a bit.  Hard to believe these amazing mounds of clay heavy land are the results of poor farming practices.  Sad when you think of it that way, but are they ever stunning.
After the Badlands, we went on to visit the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park for a nice long hike/walk.  I don't get out of the big city enough.  Letting out a huge sigh of relief and feeling the calm just looking at photos from that day.  I remember when I lived in New York, I forgot about the sky until I was in a cab to the airport to leave.  You can get so caught up in city life, especially with tall buildings popping up at an alarmingly rapid rate here in Toronto, that you can forget to exhale.  Loved getting away even for a day and seeing the horizon and some nature, even if it's wilted post-Winter nature!  It was warm enough to shed the coats and layers we brought, but there were still remnants of ice and it was super muddy.  Kinda loved tromping around through it as the clouds rolled in.  I'm sure this is a lovely spot for an outing in the Summer. 

After working up a good appetite (more like reaching starvation point) we headed to Orangeville for some yummy Jamaican at Soulyve.  Refuelled on tasty jerk chicken and ribs before returning to the city with full bellies and coffees for the road!  Note to self:  Must remember to make more escapes out of the downtown core.

Thank You!

Thank you to the BEST customers, family, friends and supporters for an amazing One of a Kind Show.  I am always reminded of how super and loyal our customers are.  I have gotten to know so many by name over the years.  It's great to have the opportunity to chat with customers in person and get feedback face to face.  So happy to see familiar faces and meet lovely new people too!  Looking forward to the next one in November.

Spent the last couple days in a post-show hangover.  Been enjoying the sunshine while working on custom and online orders.  Mainlined coffee in my new pickle mug from Greg Voisin.  How could I not give a mug with pickles on it a good home?  Also, the butter tarts from Beverley's Bakers are excellent.  I may have had a few too many!  Mug and tarts were my show purchases this time.  Very restrained!

A few more custom orders to complete and we will be back to our regular programming!

Thanks again for all the One of a Kind good vibes!  A special thanks to all of the friends that donate their time to help prepare for the show and at the booth.  I am so grateful!
