Hi! I'm Jana! The maker and designer behind Silas&Ivy Jewelry Collective.
I started this little biz in 2014. It was on whim while I was finishing post secondary, a little escape and boost for my mental health after hours of studying. I started with stud earrings because that's what I wore and it just went from there!
I've found my true style over the years and one that's finally stuck. I LOVE working with gemstones in their inperfect nature and I think it's a little reminder to myself that life isn't always what you planned.
I would describe my style as bohemian luxe. Not high end luxury, just 'fancy boho'. I hope my pieces can be carried from daytime to the evening.
Who, what, where?
I make and design all the pieces in my home studio in
Calgary, AB. I source my materials from around the globe focusing on high quality, semi precious gemstones, metals, leathers and other found materials. I dye and hand-pour my resin earrings using an assortment of pigments, textures and sparkle.
I look to support other small businesses when I can through purchasing my supplies through a handful of family owned businesses in Canada, India, China, Isreal, the United States and Australia.
I do small batch and one of a kind pieces. I love creating new things and constantly challenging myself to come up with new designs. I think its kinda cool to have a piece that is unique and limited.
Thank you for following along on my journey of creating boho luxe pieces for you. I hope you enjoy the creations I make.
