Augmented Gem began with jewelry design way back in 2010. Over the years, creative interests have grown about in this snug Stoney Creek, Ontario home studio. Hair accessories, purse charms, and keychains now play a big part too.
Gem was born out of an admiration for earthy elements paired with the thrill of being a creative soul. There's a connectivity I feel when making that compares to nothing else. Designing spectacular + unthought of accessories is my hearts work. Hand painting their packaging is simply an extension of that, a gift of heart.
Real pride lies in the magnificently altered end result, along with the self expression that Gem's accessories aim to encourage. I love working with recycled components, repurposed tidbits, and leather remnants. Adapting it all to be enjoyed, once again, by other treasure hunters on their very own lifetime of adventures.
Regardless of your accessory preference, when or how we came to cross paths, thank you for your interest. I appreciate your support, and am thankful for the opportunity to possibly play a small part of your own special journey.
