Orange Avocado Jewelry Christmas ShowWednesday, November 27, 201910am to 7 pm, Banff RoomDerrick Golf & Winter Club, 3500-119th StreetAs I prepare for my upcoming show, I always set a goal for myself. I create a limited edition collection that will only be available during the show. My sketch book is full of endless designs that often come to life on these days. Some make it to the show and some are reserved for later. In the end it is always about creating something that is new, fresh, and original. See what I have in store for you!Event Details on my website HEREand on my Orange Avocado Jewelry Events page HERE. Please feel free to sign up on my Facebook Events page.

Over 200 people attended the show...how is it so I say each time to my daughter. So much love to my friends and family who helped me with my show: Calla, Kirsten, Erin, Rayna, Roma, Alex, Jackie,Debbie, my mom Kim and Aidan. I cannot do it without your help each year! Each of you make changes in your busy schedules to help me...incredible! A final thanks to the staff at the Derrick Club, they are the most accommodating and friendly people to work with.

Drop every fearBreast Cancer WarriorA place without judgementA place to drop every fearWords by Jayleen, former resident ofSorrentino's Compassion HouseI was honoured to be a part of Sorrentino's Compassion House Fashion with Compassion 2018 this year, creating a limited edition Bronze Layered Heart Bracelet. It was thrilling to see all of the 125 bracelets that I made were sold out last night. I have been creating a limited edition piece for the last 6 years for the organization. And each year I am inspired and touched by the personal stories that each resident brings to this event. A heartfelt note of gratitude to Mellissa Kraft, executive director, and Joanne Berger; for their support of my craft and fearless support of the cause. The Sorrentino's Compassion House is affordable housing for out of town residents who are undergoing cancer treatment at the Edmonton Cross Cancer Institute. With donor support each resident can stay for $25 a night; where the actual cost of a stay is $125 a night.

Thank you so much to all of my customers and friends that came out to my May Spring Show at the The Derrick Golf & Winter Club. Over 175 people attended the show and the lucky winner of the $100 Gift Card is LeeAnn T!! Thank you to everyone on social media that shared the details of my show because word of mouth is the strongest affirmation of the work that I do.
In this picture is Debbie, Roma, Kirsten, Calla, Erin, Simone, Maddie, Catherine, Eric, & Colleen, and not in the picture is my mother Kim, and Jackie. These are my friends and family that came out to help me and help you find the perfect piece of jewelry. It is a representation of who my customers are; they are mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunties, friends and family. Friends and family are everything! I loved seeing them work so well together and seeing every customer feel a little bit of joy when they found the perfect pieces. It was a fun and gratifying day. I am forever grateful that you allow me to share my love of making jewels one by one for you.
Love from me to you.

Thank you to over 220 people that attended my Orange Avocado Jewelry 2017 Christmas show. I continue to be overwhelmed with the amazing support of my little jewelry company. Thank you to these ladies and one brave guy in the picture who worked so hard to help you, all day and into the evening: Simone, Eric, Erin, Debbie, Rayna, Najat, Jackie, Kirsten, Calla and Roma. I could not have not have attended to my customers without their help.
Your support makes the 5 month preparation for my show all worth it. I am driven by a desire to create something unique for each customer; it is a work that is driven by my heart and passion to create. I have always been a maker since I can remember from the age of 4 years old.
I am also happy to say that Tanya O. was the winner of the $100 gift certificate!
