I live near Vancouver and would be happy to give you info about
interesting/good jewelry galleries, stores etc.
In August there is an interesting travelling show at the 'Object
Design Gallery' (,a jewellery gallery on Granville Island,) of 9
Canadian Jewellers, called 'In Service'. Canada doesn't seem to have
many travelling shows and I've been looking forward to this one
myself- I sell at Object and heard about it ages ago. It's opening is
on August fourth and runs until September 2nd.
Also on Granville Island are Aururum Argentium, The Crafthouse,
Circle Craft, Hammered and Pickled and Forge and Form. It is a
small 'island-ette' more than anything, and so, they are all very
very close to each other.
Also of note might be the work at the Vancouver Art Gallery Shop,
Dream (in Gastown), as well as others.
There are many many jewellers in Vancouver.
I am organising a 'feature artist' show at Dream, in Vancouver,
rather soon (with dates yet to be announced) and might be showing
while you are in the area. For a more 'personal/detailed' review of
suggested the venues you can email me personally at
@colleen_baran telling me what sort of work you are
