Autumn Days

It is going to be a very busy weekend for the goldsmiths of Jewel Envy. What a way to start the fall!

Here's what you can look forward to this weekend:

The Roncesvalles Polish Festival
Come celebrate our Polish community with some perogies and free wax carving. We will teach you how to carve jeweller's wax to make jewellery. At the end of the hour, you can choose to take your wax home, have us cast it in bronze for you, or take a 4-hour workshop to learn how to cast in sterling silver and polish. (Perogies not included.)

The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition
Not one or two, but three of our goldsmiths are exhibition their work at TOAE this year! Alexis Kostuk, Hyewon Jang, and Ellolite (Chia-Chien Tsai). They will be there all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so get out to Nathan Phillip Square and say hi! There will be a ton of great art!

The Post Market
Here's what Toronto Life has to say, "This Sunday, The Post Market is popping up for its autumn shopping fair in The Great Hall on Queen West, giving visitors the opportunity to browse a variety of vintage, handmade and contemporary wares from Toronto-based retailers and artists." The only thing left to tell you is that Sasha Oda of Archerade will be there, with lots of new jewellery for you! What better way to spend a Sunday and walking and shopping along Queen West?!

As for me, I'll be at a rock music festival, so while I'm missing out on all of these great jewellery events, I will cheer myself up with a bit of Weezer and Alexisonfire.

Whatever you do this weekend (and I recommend all of the above events!), I hope you have a great one!
