Eden for Wildfox

Inspired by and incorporating nature, Theresa who is the designer of all things beautiful at her Wildfox etsy store. A fellow NSCAD student, her designs still follow trends and are still contemporary but are also like little pieces of art in themselves and finely crafted with some strange source materials. If someone told me they had a pair of earrings made from seaweed I would probably look at them strange and start wondering what that would smell like but as you'll see here, pine cones, sticks, bark, flowers, herbs all come together to make a beautiful series. Thanks to my model Eden who is currently Miss Eastern Nova Scotia Globe.

Do you know anyone who is a designer? I would love to work with Central Coast locals on future projects. email me at

Vincenzo and Laura for Swallow and Twig

As soon as I saw the collection by Mary from Swallow and Twig it made me think of the movie 'UP' and so we rolled with that theme for the product shots of her beautiful hand painted and resin set jewellery. We shot in iconic Halifax locations of the Public Gardens and on Citadel Hill and one of my favourite moments was right at the end of the shoot when I gave the balloons we had been using to a little girl. I strongly suggest you go and check out the Etsy page of Swallow and Twig as they have a sale on at the moment and I just can't say enough good things about the little pieces of art!

Catherine for Bridget Turner Jewellery

Another Etsy Trade shoot this week and with the weather being how it was today (38 degrees C) I figured these intricately made beach themed accessories would be great to feature. All made by Bridget herself you can find them at her Etsy shop. You can also check her out on her Facebook page. Catherine stepped in at the last minute when a shoot fell through with another model and she was amazing! We shot at Point Pleasant park on one of the sunniest days of September.
