With a creative spark, plus a true love for vintage treasures, modern vibes and natural textures, designing a line of jewelry with those elements is an intuitive expression for the maker, Rikki. After a decade of working a day job and running her own business, she recently took the plunge and made her passion her full time gig. It was an organic process that all began in 2009 - starting with making a single necklace for a loved one, that much to her surprise and delight, attracted attention from all sorts of folks. Soon she found herself designing and making an entire line of jewelry. First selling at local markets, then to shops in Winnipeg, and from there to businesses across Canada, spanning from Vancouver to Toronto and north to Churchill. Last year she also found a new home for her business in an open studio space, sharing it with some fellow Winnipeg makers in the heart of the Exchange district. Rikki carefully cuts, saws and polishes her days away in her lofty light filled studio, focusing on re purposing vintage objects and natural gemstones. The result is a line of jewelry and hair accessories that hold a unique and unexpected mix of modern, bohemian shapes with a time-worn nod to the past.
