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.

Into Jewellery

Another talented jewellery artisan to introduce you to is Mervi Haapakoski of Into Jewellery. 
Mervi Haapakoski is an Finnish artist currently living in Toronto. She received her MA from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Finland. Since 1994 she has worked as a hot glass artist.  In 2008 she expanded her life long passion of knitting and crocheting into designing and producing her own line of jewellery.
There is a feel of airiness and light in her designs, such as in this Champagne Green Fresh Water Multi String Choker, made from champagne green fresh water pearls.  The choker has a sterling silver clasp, and is crocheted with nylon coated metal wire.

We are so pleased to have Mervi with us. More products can be found at Into Jewellery.
