The Wedding Collection

I have never been very traditional. I have always made bold moves in both my career choices and my personal life. I know that I have given my dear parents many sleepless nights worrying if I would ever become more normal. I don't see normal in my future. I see something a little bit different...........

I would like to introduce you to my new Wedding Collection. The Wedding Collection is a small collection of one of a kind necklaces and rings that are perfect for a bold bride who chooses something a little bit different.

"She Said Yes Necklace"

The She Said Yes Necklace is the perfect necklace for a bold bride who has no hesitation saying Yes to exactly what she desires.
"Take The Plunge Necklace"

The Take The Plunge Necklace is made for a plunging neckline or a plunging lifestyle. It is the perfect necklace for the bride who knows what she wants and jumps right in.

"Love Story Necklace"

The Love Story Necklace, like any great Love Story is complicated. It has twists and turns, highs and lows, and has been hammered and polished.
It is the perfect necklace for a bride who has been through a lot but who has always believed in finding her true love.

I will be showing my Wedding Collection at The Grassroots Wedding Fair this Saturday January 30th at Heritage Hall on Main Street in Vancouver.

Flowers in January

In the ally behind my apartment building the crocuses are starting to peek through the earth and I found this lovely pink flower, boldly blossoming in January.
I was also delighted when I went by the Vancouver Art Gallery the other day and saw this amazing installation by Michael Lin. I am absolutely in love with it.

Blue & Red

Yesterday I finished making myself a new "It's All About Me" ring to embrace the new year with. I chose a pale sky blue colour for the enamel, which makes me think of lying on the beach in the summertime, not thinking about anything except the warmth of the sun on my face and the perfect blue sky above me. I added a small red garnet, my January birthstone, for the added bling.

I want 2010 to be a year of bold steps, vibrant colours and for getting what you desire.

Designing 2010

I am deep in design mode. Designing what I want the year to look like for PKK Design and what new designs I will add to my collection. I am building inspiration from many different places in my world. One of them is Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 line. The colours are rich tones of turquoise, sea green, orange, golds, and royal purples. The textures are fantastic and reptile like. Many of the pieces look like they are made up of lovely bits of gemstones and metal. And those shoes!
