Luminato 2016

Luminato was a little different than in years past. It was a completely new experience as it was not set up in a variety of outposts across the city, but took place in the derelict former power station, the Hearn. Grabbed a couple friends and ventured across town late one night. Glad we went around 9:30 p.m. as it wasn't busy and we were free to explore without the distraction of too many other visitors. Also, the musical performance was on and the sound reverberated throughout the building like a soundtrack for our night. To be very honest, I am not normally a Rufus Wainwright fan, but we all agreed he and his band sounded great in this cavernous space. Enjoyed sipping on a drink and checking out the installations especially the world's largest disco ball, 'One Thousand Speculations' by Michel de Broin. The light bounced off the disco ball and danced around the space eerily. Wish we could have dined in the restaurant set up in the control room. It smelled divine. As we exited the building at the end of the night, Rufus was singing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow". We marvelled that Toronto can be pretty cool sometimes with some pretty great events. Sometimes we forget to give our town due credit!

Speaking of pretty great events, I also caught a talk with Steve Martin. He was in town to discuss his curatorial role in the upcoming Lawren Harris show, 'The Idea of North' at the Art Gallery of Ontario. He bantered with Andrew Hunter about his experiences in Toronto, how he came to love and collect the works of Harris, and told other humorous anecdotes. Both men were great conversationalists and extremely funny. I left filled with good vibes, feeling inspired and looking very forward to catching the show when it opens in a few days.

Time to get a little sleep. Have made a few resolutions to myself in the past few days. Going to keep most to myself but, one was to get better sleep. Another was to pursue some non-jewellery related creative endeavours. The world lost dapper fashion photographer Bill Cunningham yesterday. He was 87 years old. Read that he didn't begin shooting for the Times until he was over 40. Kind of inspiring to think about how much he accomplished even just from mid-life onwards. What a full life. Hope to be so lucky.

I know I have shared this image before, but it's one of my all-time favourites. It was one of the first images shot by Joseph Saraceno when we first worked together on photographing the MoonRox lookbooks. Joe has a way of arranging pieces in a way I had not necessarily thought of, but always appreciate and wish I had thought of! This array of earrings look so amazing. I really must blow this up and hang it on the wall!

Don't have your ears pierced? Did you know that any of our earrings with these French hook style ear wires can be made for you as clip ons? Just send a note with a request when you place your order.

It's a beautiful day here in Toronto! Had a lovely brunch with some creative ladies. Love chatting with other like-minded women who are each working on very different businesses.  So nice to her what each is achieving.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! I'm looking forward to a sweet sunny one ahead!
