Thanks for 15 fabulous years! #OOAKX15

At the close of the One of a Kind Show, I'm feeling reflective.... Prepare for a sappy message ahead. This is my 15th year at the One of a Kind Show! So hard to believe! 

I'm very grateful to all our lovely and loyal customers that have grown along with us. Show by show, I've watched little kids grow up and customers hit life milestones. Takes me back to being the little girl that counted down to our family excursions to the show twice a year. It was the highlight of my year and I couldn't get enough. Every visit was filled with creative inspiration and we always brought something special home with us. Now after 15 years exhibiting at the show and 29 shows total when you count the spring edition too, I hope that I have been able to share some of these special treasures with some of you! 

Wanted to say a huge thank you to my friends and family who have been super supportive over the last decade and a half. Thank you for the set up help, booth help, take down help, food and drink deliveries, messages of support and all the love! Thanks also to my fellow makers, amazing booth neighbours and creative community and the team at OOAK for filling my life with all sorts of handcrafted goodness. 

Looking forward to many more wonderful years ahead.

Unify Bracelets

(Photo by Joseph Saraceno.)
Things are super busy here! Feeling the crunch that hits me like a wall every year at this time! 

I have been busy building up stock for the Holiday season. Amongst creating many other things, I have spent hours this week making these Unify bracelets! It has been a sunny and unseasonably warm week here in Toronto, and I have loved it! The second Hallowe'en passes by, the Holiday campaigns launch everywhere and it seems that all I hear is Christmas jingles and flip past print ads. As per usual, this is the moment I realize how much still needs to be accomplished in the next few weeks. Bit of a conflicted feeling with the warm weather and Holiday buzz, but it kind of suits me just right! Love the bright sunshine. Seems to motivate a much higher level of production which is much needed right now! 
Found it so relaxing and almost meditative to make these Unify Bracelets. They look great on their own, stacked in a group, or mixed up with other pieces. Choose from 8 great colours! All are lovely! I had a hard time picking one for myself.

Later today we will be running the first of our One of a Kind Show ticket giveaways. Check our Facebook and Instagram feeds to enter!

Good night!

Rock Bracelet and Movement Necklace

This weekend was filled with cozy meals, disappointing baseball results, ticking things off the seemingly endless to do list and long city walks kicking around the Autumn leaves. Ending the weekend by making some Rock Bracelets. Here the Bracelet is paired with the Small Movement Necklace. Both showcase some pretty chunks of pyrite. For more details, visit the website at www.moonrox.ca.

Gearing up for a busy week! Hard to believe that the One of a Kind Show is only a month away! Lots of work to do... Don't forget the coupon code ASDxryy2 to save on show tickets! See more here.

Hope you have a great week!

Aspect Series

Made with vintage plastic links, brass details with a touch a wood too! Found a a small amount of these great plastic links so these pieces will be limited in numbers. The pieces are bold but sit comfortably and make enough of a statement to compete with our scarves and layers we have piled on at this time of year!

For more on these pieces, visit our website at www.moonrox.ca.  Also keep your eye on the site for the second release of Fall/Winter 2015 to go live tomorrow!

Go Jays Go!!

Currently, I am half working on web updates and half watching our Toronto Blue Jays in playoff ball! I was the hugest fan as kid until I went to New York for fashion school and didn't have as much access. Wasn't able to have the game on the radio in one ear while at the ballpark or watching on tv for every single game of the season. We used to vacation at Spring training in Dunedin. My sister and I have boxes and boxes of souvenirs and paraphernalia, much of it autographed by the 80's and 90's team members. I remember euphorically celebrating both World Series wins in '92 and '93 in the streets. We were obsessed!  So I am super thrilled as most Torontonians are to see our Jays return to the post season after so many years. 

Yesterday was Aunt L.'s birthday. She always takes her birthday off of work every year. So a few hours before the game, she suggested that we try to get some tickets to Game 1 of the ALDS. Such a great environment in the dome, even way up in the last row of the 500s. Cheers were deafening and the sold-out crowd was energized. Loved watching them raise the American League East Champions banner!

Jays took a loss yesterday.  Crossing our fingers, along with the rest of the sea of blue in this town, for a healthy comeback in the remainder of the series! GO JAYS GO!!

MoonRox Collection for Fall/Winter 2015

Very excited to say that the first release of the Fall/Winter Collection is now live! Please have a look! Hope you like! Or even better, hope you love!
Pictured here are the Configure Necklace and Bracelet. I had fun playing with geometric forms and making a bold and modern grouping. Large acrylic beads are combined with a very large brass box chain in these two fun pieces.

Spa escape


Turning this into an annual tradition for SF's birthday! Drove up to Collingwood for the day to relax and zen out at le Scandinavia Spa. This time we really made the best of it.  My friend Mrs. L-O joined us on this sunny September day. Did about 7 cycles of hot, cold, rest in the Scandinavian baths before heading for massages. Some friends had gotten me a gift certificate for my birthday several months back, so I was excited to try my first massage ever!  I think I have to get used to random man with his hands all on me, but eventually I relaxed and enjoyed it. We returned to the pools for several more cycles of hot, cold, relax and repeat and by this time we were super relaxed and moving at a noticeably slower pace. Chilling by a nice fire as the sun set and glowed through the flowers was an ideal setting.  Had perfect weather and really only extracted ourselves from this bliss because we were hungry! We ended our day with a rib feast before returning to the city.

Lost my spa vibes almost immediately as I had some work to catch up on late at night before calling it. Already daydreaming of going back!

Rotation Necklace

This necklace is now one of my all-time faves!  It's a simple design with some weight to it, some length to it, and some sparkle to it!  It's a little rugged with these solid brass circular forms, and a little feminine with shiny large crystal drops.  I find I wear my Rotation Necklace several times a week!  See more details at www.moonrox.ca.

The Ex, 2015

Every year for the past several, an evolving group of friends, but always some staples, have gone to the Blue Rodeo show at the Amphitheatre.  It's our traditional ultra-Canadian wind down of Summer.  After the show, we head to the Ex as a large gang to hit as many rides and eat as much junk as possible before they shut down for the night.  These are some snapshots from this past Saturday night!  I always love all the lights, colours and delicious gaudiness of the midway at night!  Hope to head back and visit my favourite alpaca friends in the farm building before the Exhibition wanders away for another year after Labour Day!

Gilded Bracelet in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine


Last month the Gilded Bracelet was featured in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine.  Bold and shiny gold coloured, this bracelet goes with everything and will suit your pre and post baby wardrobes!  It's tough enough to survive a tug from those little baby hands!

Hong Kong, part II

It's been a busy Summer and now as I browse these pictures, my memories of these experiences have already dimmed!  Glad I took so many photos!  Sorry for the delay in posting these.  Here are the photos from the second part of my Hong Kong travels.

Landing in HK after our Maldives break!
Pastel colours of Wan Chai.
Lovely little speciality shops. Stationery...
china...
Entry way into the old days!
Interesting architecture.
A visit to Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens on a steamy hot and humid day.
Not the best idea.
Eyeballing the high end shops in Central.  This was the Fendi window.
Picking up souvenirs for the people back home!
You can find anything on the streets of HK.
Tutus, leis, and a giant yellow t-shirt with with Winnie the Pooh's face!?
The Peninsula Hotel, the oldest hotel in Hong Kong.  A reminder of the 1920's...
with a modern bar with padded walls at the top of it!
Favourite meal.  A simple and delicious bowl of lai fun with char siu (noodle soup with barbecue pork) at Tsui Hang Village.  Yum yum yum... could eat this now.
Love seeing the remnants of days gone by peeking thru all the modernity of the city.
Pretty floral soup pot turned plant container.
Alleyway juice spot. I favour these spots over the fancy trendy juice bars!

A taxi ride via winding roads.
Waterfront at Stanley.
Building and pier both painstakingly moved from Central to Stanley.
Above is Murray House and below is Blake Pier.
Stanley Market.
Lovey dovey speech bubbles, a version of love locks at the viewing deck of the shopping centre at Stanley.
Hot pot with my cousin and her family.  So good and so fun!
Korean grub at U-Hang on High Street.  Loved the decor.
At the horse races making picks based on jerseys!
A gai si, or wet market.
Tea shopping and tasting with Mom.
Dense green foliage amidst tall apartment buildings.
A three week trip was over before I knew it.  I didn't have any jet lag upon my return to Toronto, but it took me weeks to recover from the over eating and intense family time!  Now as I write this a couple months after the trip, I have witnessed a few more friends lose some very close loved ones. Reminds me how lucky I am to have two healthy parents that love to sidekick with me!  I am so  grateful to have been able to spend some quality time with fam especially in such exotic places!
