Our newest line of hand knit and hand crocheted cozies

Shopping for fall? Or gearing up for winter?

Which ever the season, our newest line of hand knit and hand crocheted "cozies", Beyond Infiknitty by OhKuol, will keep you warm and effortlessly stylish during the chilly days to come.

Each piece is hand knit and hand crocheted in our own home studio. We source out quality local materials; locally hand dyed cotton threads and hand painted luxury merino wool (extremely soft and lush for a comfortable fit!)

Have you also noticed a beautiful selection of colours? This season, we are focusing on choosing vibrant colors and jewel tones. A pop of color may compliment your style and wardrobe. But choosing the wrong shade of orange, for instance, could cross the very fine line of looking hot versus tasteless. Our choice of color for each individual piece is strategically and carefully chosen for wearability.

Thank You, Merci Beaucoup

Today is the first day of August and also the first day after officially closing our little boutique, our sweet little boutique that we had for 3 special years! This past week has been chaotic and hectic to say the least. I would have to say that disassembling and hauling our glass cases was the biggest challenge. Many thanks to the Student Works Disposal team for lending us their muscles!

for your delicious cupcakes made with love!
In addition to everyone who has helped us with the move, I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our local designers, it has certainly been a pleasure to work with so many talented artists in Vancouver. Thank you all for the opportunity, I wish everyone the best of luck with all your future endeavors, and I hope we will have the chance to work together again!

Of course, I have to thank our customers, especially our regular customers, for their continuous support! It has been very fun being a jewelry stylist. I will miss the neighborhood! Speaking of our neighborhood, many thanks to the South Granville Business Association and all our friends on South Granville as well, you have all been spectacular. 

We are looking forward to taking a short break. But, we will surely keep everyone posted on our future projects, so stay tuned!

Labradorite from The Northern Lights

That's the Aurora Borealis, or known as The Northern Lights. Our customers up in Whitehorse and Alaska talk about it, but I am sure it is a different experience when you are actually watching these glowing lights glimmer and dance in the night sky. I live in the hustling and bustling city of Vancouver, one of the best cities in the world. Yet, sometimes I wonder how it would be like to live in a small village or in the country side, where street lights are minimal and the skies are pitch black at night. One day, I would love to make a trip up to Whitehorse and see how brilliant this natural phenomenon is!

Lately, we have been working with a gemstone called 'Labradorite', which has natural flashes of blues and greens. Legends and old stories have said that labradorite is a stone that has fallen from the Aurora Borealis because the colors between the two are very similar... It is truly a fascinating stone!

Here are a pair of labradorite cluster earrings we handmade recently. To compliment the colors of labradorite, we chose to use blue quartz, peacock freshwater pearls, and grey freshwater pearls... very exotic colors!

Do we have any readers who have seen The Northern Lights? We love stories :)

2 Weeks Left & August Peridot

Today is July 15th and we're already half way through the month! Really?!

Lately we have been busy with our liquidation sale at the retail store. The rushes and madness remind me of Christmas time, heck some of our customers are already shopping for Christmas! I'm more of a last minute person. I know the advantages of shopping early, but it just doesn't happen that way... for me. But if it does for you, then pop into our store during our last 2 weeks! Whether you're looking for bridal jewelry, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, thank you gifts, or fresh staples to stock up your wardrobe, you're likely to score a super deal!

Speaking of gifts, if you know of August babies, here are a couple of new green peridot earrings and necklaces that might suit their fancy:

Green peridot is the August birthstone and it has such a vibrant, earthy green that we love. It is absolutely refreshing to work with this glimmering gem!

See more in our shop:, or e-mail us at if you have any questions :)
