OhKuol Bags

Hi all! In the midst of working on our website and other projects, we have also been keeping busy with Etsy. This week, we opened our SECOND Etsy shop featuring OhKuol Bags, which are all handmade by our dear ma, Judy, in our home studio!

We decided to open this little shop to showcase her work. It also gives her a reason to continue sewing. Sewing used to be a part time job for her while raising us kids. Although she has retired, she still enjoys sewing and creating very much. Vi and I help her pick out fabrics. We're big fans of Amy Butler 100% cotton fabrics. They are quality fabrics with vibrant and colorful prints and patterns. Like some say, you can never have too many bags, just like how you can never have too many shoes... ;)

If you haven't stopped by the store yet, try to swing by and check out our closing/moving sale! Selected local artisan jewelry are discounted from 20% and up, including Silver Trumpet, Irit Sorokin Designs, Fani Song Recycled Glass Jewelry, The Raven Iron, and OhKuol Luscious Gemstone Jewelry - which is also available for purchase online in our jewelry Etsy shop. Local Vancouverites, please use coupon code 'VANCITY' to redeem your discount!

That's all the news for now, have a lovely weekend everyone! Toodaloos...

Online Website

Hello readers,

We're working hard on finishing our new website! Our website is expected to be completed by mid-end of July as there were some technical challenges that came up while integrating our new shopping cart... but I assure you it's worth the wait :)

Stay tuned!

A symphony of jewels

"a symphony of jewels for all tastes"

The Silver Trumpet vintage inspired jewelry collection by local designer Andrea Halvorsen has been a great hit at OhKuol's for the past few years. Her most popular pieces include colorful cameos in ornate settings and many whimsical rings, bracelets, and earrings. If you're also a lover of Silver Trumpet jewelry, stop by OhKuol at 2439 Granville street for 20% off the collection during our closing/moving sale.

Whimsical Charm Necklaces!

For the past week, we have been daydreaming about summer and making little charm necklaces with semi-precious gemstones. They are refreshing and whimsical, we think they're a ton of fun!

Labradorite Starfish Necklace
Blue Topaz Leaf Necklace

This one is an all time favorite for us, we enjoy making this one because sky blue topaz goes quite nicely with bright sterling silver. Summer is almost here, do you wear more gold or silver this time of year?
Many of us might say silver because silver has a cooler tone. But that doesn't mean we should limit ourselves to silver during summer! Here's a summer themed charm necklace with a little seahorse, a clam, and a white freshwater pearl (June birthstone). 

Shop at our Etsy shop for more options! Enjoy the sun and we wish all our readers a lovely weekend. 

p.s. Remember to stop by our store to check out our closing/moving sale. See earlier post for more details.
