The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

100 mile finds found Skarce Handmade Designer Jewelry

Well within 100 miles of Toronto, located in Burlington is Skarce Hand Made Designer Jewelry. Rob Lardie is the talent behind the name. Website designer by day, jewelry designer by night, and probably weekends too!
Rob works with copper, brass and silver mixing them with beautiful semi-precious stones, leathers and fibres. The results are amazing!

This Botswana Agate Sterling Silver Ring is 13x15mm and set in sterling silver. It is $55.

Hand Hammered Copper Necklace
This necklace features a hand made wire chain and hand hammered and polished copper discs. It's $25.

Studded Copper Cuff: It is textured and Patinaed with 3 copper studs. $30.
Oh, I know what you're thinkin' These are beautiful and such a great price that I could get something for myself AND something for that special someone for Valentine's Day! I'm a mind reader, that's for sure!

Both the Purple Thumb in the Beaches and Periwinkle in Bloor West Village carry Rob's stuff or contact him thru his store at
