There was always something about the richness of brass that caughtHailey Gerrits’ eye. When she began her jewelry practice in 2010, it wasn’t long before she could be found digging through bins of antique and vintage brasses in warehouses the size of airplane hangars, patiently searching for the perfect piece. It was the unknown origins and histories of the aged metals, and the uniqueness of hand cut gemstones, that captured her imagination — the otherwise unobtainable quality of some spirit attached to every necklace, bracelet and earring she produced.
Today Hailey creates jewelry that is decidedly unique. Construction with unique artisan-cut gems and aged reclaimed metals imbues each piece with an image of the past and all of its romance — fully embodying the notion of 'one-of-a-kind'.
Her collections are handmade in small batches in her studio in Vancouver, BC, Canada and all materials are ethically sourced from around the globe. This culminates in the creation of collections that respect the people and planet alike; a celebration of beauty that doesn't sacrifice sustainability or style.
