Creative Repairs!

Posted by Negar Khatami on

I have been wanting to introduce Luyi Wang to you for a while. Luyi is a jewellery artist who joined me about a year ago at my new studio location and I am so happy that I met her. She is one of the super talented artists from Vancouver who has an amazing creative mind. Her vision is out of this world and to be honest I rarely brag about artists' vision but on this one I can't stop! Luyi is an emerging jewelry artist living in Vancouver. She was born in Shanghai, China in 1986, and moved to Vancouver in...

Future Designers!

Posted by Negar Khatami on

I had the opportunity to meet a young lady on my last event 'Exquisite Lines' who was so fascinated and curious as to how I make jewellery. So, I decided to do a quick walk around my studio to tell her a little bit about how I work. I could see the sparks in her eyes and with her dad's suggestion, we quickly decided to meet the following Saturday to create a piece for her mom's birthday coming up on June 2nd, today! We met right after her tap dance class and started our project. To my surprise, she had...

I am thrilled how the new pieces look and very excited to share them with you. Since they are not finished, I decided to...

We arrived in the morning for set up and little did we know that this lovely lady, Sinfor Wong, had everything under control, and greeted us with her beautiful smile and lead us in. She is one of the top event planners in Vancouver and we got the opportunity to chat with her during her busy day. I am hoping that she...

Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Shopping!

Posted by Negar Khatami on

As it's getting closer to Mother's Day, I am seeing a lot of rush in, last minute shopping in my gallery. I giggle a little bit as I see clients coming in in a panic mode, because I know I will have a unique gift for them and there is no need to panic. So, I thought I should put a little list of what I think makes a great Mother's Day gift & creates the search a little bit easier for you.  First off,  the obvious one, I'd start with a few jewellery from my gallery.  Pearl Blossom Ring...
