OUR 2024 FULL CIRCLE ARTIST

Paula Barrantes

We're so pleased to announce our artist for this years Full Circle Artist Program: Paula Barrantes!

Whether depicting a misty tropical forest or the cuttings from her garden, Paula’s art is about the joy of being surrounded by nature. Her latest work is inspired by her grandma's tradition of sharing plants in old containers. Sending someone off with succulents in a can of sour cream was her way of expressing a love for nature.

Through this program, our goal is to keep our jewelry out of the landfill and to inspire art, creativity and dialogue around sustainability.

To do this, we are collaborating Paula to incorporate our jewels into a unique piece of art. This work of art will be auctioned online this fall with full proceeds being donated to back to the artist!

We’re so excited to see our jewelry live on in the form of Paula's artwork. Keep up with her Full Circle journey through Instagram.

What is the Full Circle Artist Program?

As part of our goal to create a more sustainable business, we’re exploring ways to design a full lifecycle for our products. Through our Full Circle Artist Program, we create dialogue about creativity, art, conscious consumerism, sustainability and more. Our goal is ultimately to keep our jewelry out of the landfill and to inspire art, creativity and dialogue around sustainability.

We’re ready to welcome a new artist who will turn our old jewelry into unique works of art. We are inviting local artists within Metro Vancouver to apply for our next session of the Full Circle Program. We particularly encourage applications from BIPOC artists and those from marginalized groups that are traditionally underrepresented to apply. The artwork will be showcased and auctioned in the Fall with all proceeds going back to the artist.

OUR 2023 ARTIST

"Golden Hour" by Tara Lee Bennett

In 2023, we showcased and auctioned the work of artist Tara Lee Bennett.  She combined her medium of intricate paper work with our upcycled old jewelry components, unsellable jewelry and broken bits to create a beautiful piece that was showcased in our Vancouver boutique. The piece was auctioned off and full proceeds donated back to the artist.

Her current series Lush is infused with images of growth and renewal reflecting both the personal and professional journeys of her life. 


Holistic Sustainability

We believe there are no quick fixes to a more sustainable future. We’re here to ask the questions, put in the time, and do the right thing to spark delight in ways that are positively impacting our product, people, and the planet.

As part of our goal to create a more sustainable business, we’re exploring ways to design a full lifecycle for our products. Through our Full Circle Artist Program, we create dialogue about creativity, art, conscious consumerism, sustainability and more.  Our goal is ultimately to keep our jewelry out of the landfill and to inspire art, creativity and dialogue around sustainability.

To do this, we are collaborating with Canadian artists who will incorporate our jewels into a unique piece of art. We will be sharing with you their process over all our social media channels. The artwork will be showcased and auctioned in the Fall with all proceeds going back to the artist.
