Jewel of the day: Olivia Wong I am, You Are Locket

The Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU), located in Toronto, has a fantastic jewellery program.

2017 graduate Olivia Wong created this as one of three pieces for her thesis project, titled I Am, You Are, and is in her words part of, “a series of three objects. By researching how objects are able to create social meaning, these objects create a discussion and dialogue about the issues of sexual assault. These objects carry dualities that are discovered when worn or used. These dualities include targeting/watching, manipulation and comfort/discomfort.”

You can see more of Olivia’s work on her website.

Jewel of the day: Lauren Hope Venus Link Necklace

There isn’t much to say about this link bracelet by Lauren Hope, mainly because the selling site, Elevator, offers absolutely no information as to size/length or materials. Welp … that’s a tough way to buy something like this online. But if you are intrigued enough to pursue it, it sells for $139. The site is the online link to a Toronto store, but I’m not sure if that price is Canadian or US dollars. (More mystery!)
