After receiving my Founding Member’s pass for my sneak preview of Mr Porter this weekend, I decided to share some of the great pieces (in my opinion!) that I found on this website. Don’t forget, Mr Porter is officially launching tomorrow Feb. 22, 2011. See you all there!

I attended the One Of A Kind Show last week and I got to meet some talented and creative Canadian artists/designers. Here are some of my favorite brands, I enjoyed meeting them all and seeing their designs in person.
If you’re a fan of Halloween and a Bigger fan of Links of London, like I am, you would definitely would like this. Limited edition skull friendship bracelet, pumpkin charm and cobweb heart charm.
I think I’m going to add the skull bracelet to my wishlist…It’s so cute, and it’s available in the dark gray or a red color retailing for C$230. It would look great with my black and white friendship bracelet and charm bracelet. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the prices for the charms on the Links Of London Website, but will look in to it!
A couple of weeks ago while at my day job I got to meet Sandy, the creative mind behind Sandra Lynn Designs. Sandy has made beautiful jewellery for the past 7 years and her pieces are unique and bold. All the pieces are limited in numbers, depending on availability of the material used for each item. I love that about custom jewellery since you know no one else is going to walk in to a party wearing the same necklace you’re wearing.
I got a chance to look through Sandy’s collection of necklaces and bracelets recently and I fell in love with their bold colors and how they stand out on their own like true statement pieces. All of the pieces made by Sandy are sterling silver and semi precious stones, price ranging anywhere from $130 to $270.
Here are some of my favorite pieces!
I love this bracelet, it's a chunkier version of The Links of London Sweetie bracelet...Love it!!
While I was there I got to take a look at a good selection of jewellery pieces by other designers that complement Sandy’s collections and are more budget friendly as well. There’s something for everyone! I actually found a beautiful turquoise watch in one of her displays that I joyfully bought and added to my collection of watches. So, Yay, one more thing off my wishlist. (pictures to come!)
If you’re interested to know more about Sandra Lynn Designs contact Sandy at Sandra.firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: Sandy is going to be at the “Our Kinda Gift & Craft Show” at North Thornhill Community Center (300 Pleasant Ridge Ave.) on Sunday November 28th from 10:30 – 3:30pm.
Don’t forget to check her beautiful pieces out!
