At Mint Boutique we think it’s really important to promote and endorse Canadian artists whenever we can. We’re always searching for new brands to bring into the store and share with all of you. We do especially well at supporting Canadian artists when it comes to our jewellery collection and are proud to say that all of our jewelry is 100% Canadian. When we want to bring a new jewellery brand in we do a lot of research before hand. We make sure the materials used are up to par, there’s a handmade quality to the work and we like to work with artists who have similar values as Mint Boutique. We came across Laurie Fleming a few years ago and absolutely fell in love. Her beautifully dainty pieces are so feminine, yet edgy, that we knew we needed to carry her work in the shop. Her pieces are made of hand carved mother of pearl and topaz stones. Laurie’s pieces are romantic and enigmatic. Laurie describes her work best, “inspired by unearthly atmospheres, the handcrafted pieces appear to have come from a world other than our own. Fluid metal forms refined with glowing stones emanate the feeling of intrinsic ascendancy, while still preserving their delicate nature.” We are happy to say that we have now carried Laurie’s work for just over a year and our clients love it as much as we do.
The Versare Earrings in the image to the top left are some of the first we ever got it and still remain our favourite. They are sterling silver and look like they hang off of your ear. You can also turn them to the side and wear them as an ear climber. Laurie created a a different version for this season which is seen to the top right, adorned in stone.
The Tiny Anais Earrings pictured to the top left are a Mint Boutique best seller. The hand carved mother of pearl give these dainty pieces an extra something special. The 4 studs pictured to the right will be available at Mint this season and are a mix and match set.
