Let’s Do Brunch – Birds and the Beet

Let’s Do Brunch – Birds and the Beet

October 10, 2017

The holidays are fast approaching and the Devi Arts Collective is getting a brand new look! This has been a long time coming and I’m really excited about it. I sat down for brunch with a member of my team last week to make a plan for the website redesign, which we’re hoping to launch at the beginning of November.
 
The new website will feature beautiful photographs of the entire Devi collection, an easy-to-navigate online store, and a clean blogging template where we’ll continue to share our stories and tips.

But let’s talk a little bit more about brunch! I love a good vegetarian dish, and since my team members all work remotely I’ve been getting together with them every few months to touch base over some food.


This month my editor joined me at Birds and the Beet – a hip café in Vancouver’s Gastown, with delicious wholesome homemade fair. We both enjoyed a bowl of Rolled Oat & Chia Bircher Muesli and a hot drink. I had an almond milk latte and she had a loose leaf tea.
 
I recently purchased a new camera to capture some of my new pieces and to offer you quality looking behind-the-scenes snaps on our Instagram account. We put that camera to use before we ate. Yes, we were those people carefully posing our food and finding the right angle, and although Christine nearly backed into another table of guests, I think it was worth it in the end. Also, the anticipation which built up before we finally ate didn’t let us down. The muesli was as good as it looks.

 
Our mantra for the new design is simple, elegant, and beautiful. We want a platform that will showcase what we’ve been building in a way that is easy to navigate and even easier to share.
 
We can’t wait to share it with you.
 
In the meantime, make sure you check out our Instagram account for updates on our nature-inspired jewelry and some behind-the-scenes snaps from our markets. You can find us @DeviCollective

When I started working with silver and gold as a metalsmith, the Orbit Ring was one of my very first designs. It’s continued to be a favourite of mine over the years, but I've recently given it a reinvention...

Originally, the plan for this blog was to give you a behind-the-scenes look at my Flower Power collection, which I'm still going to do. But I also want to share my thoughts on something that happened last week in America.  You probably already know what I’m talking about.

The Inspiration I Found in the Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona, in Colombia

April 23, 2019

For my very first backpacking trip, I connected with a good friend (and seasoned traveller) to explore Colombia. I was in University at the time, getting my degree in Biology.  I hadn’t even started to consider a career as a jewelry designer, although looking back… I think this experience may have ignited a flame.
