Our Jewelry

Our selection of jewelry includes a handful of carefully curated pieces and a number of exclusive styles designed here at our Vancouver studio. Three years in, we started learning how to create our own designs because we really wanted to be able to control the materials and quality of each piece you wear. Most of our designs are crafted with 14K gold plating or silver-toned plating, glass crystals, cubic zirconia, hypoallergenic, and nickel free materials.

The Beginning

 

Sometime in 2012, after trying to turn a few hobbies into a business (and failing), I found another hobby to keep myself busy. I had wanted to start an online store for a while, mostly because I wanted to see if I could do it at all. I had some work experience in e-commerce and loved jewelry from working at Aldo. So I decided to give it a go - an online jewelry store. In October, I launched a little side thing called Olive + Piper, with some savings, a handful of products and a degree in Sciences.  

 

In a year's time, I was so over my day job, desperate to get out. I couldn't find a new job so I decided to quit. And I did. (I kept it a secret from my family, because quitting your job without a back-up plan, and having just got a new home is completely irresponsible. Don't do it.)


With no luck finding work and literally having no income, I spent my days working on olive + piper instead. A lot of my motivation was fuelled by being sick of eating boiled cabbage for dinner and a fear of losing my home (and then having to tell my parents what I did).

Over time, things picked up, although it was unpredictable. There would be good days, followed by weeks where I thought to myself wtf and just cried. Fast forward, a few of years later, we managed to make it to where we are - all thanks to you and your support. You literally kept me alive.


I've always loved jewelry. I think it can do so much for you. The jewelry you wear with your outfit can drastically change how it looks, and change how you feel about yourself. It's the finishing touch and that extra boost of confidence. So thanks for being here, reading this and joining us on this journey. Now back to work to bring you your next favorite bauble. ;)

xoxo,
