Designers Who Inspire Us: Jenny Bird, Pyrrha, & Electric Picks

Jenny Bird

Jenny Bird is an iconic Canadian designer from Ontario. She calls her jewelry design-led, and she has an intuitive sense of trends and an eye for beauty. Her pieces are made from brass with 14K gold, sterling rhodium, or rose gold plate.

Recognized as Canada’s Accessory Designer of the year at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards in 2017, it is no wonder so many celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Meghan Markle, and Coco Rocha are spotted wearing her designs. 

Jenny Bird is known as “the Queen of the Hoop,” but her collections feature much more than that. She’s also gained notoriety for her custom chains, innovative earring silhouettes, and anklets. No matter which piece you choose, her designs are striking yet wearable and are made to be worn for years to come.

Our Favourite Pieces from Jenny Bird

Small Toni Hinged Hoop

These hoops might be small, but they’re big in style. The Small Toni Hinged Hoop is simple and modern, but its unique shape keeps them from feeling boring. They really are the perfect everyday earring.

Priya Chain

If you’re looking for the perfect chain, look no further. The Priya Chain is the only herringbone snake chain you’ll ever need. Priya means "beloved" in Sanskrit, and you’re sure to love this chain.

Evil Eye Pendant Necklace

The Evil Eye Pendant Necklace provides powerful protection and great style. The evil eye pendant is gorgeous and comes with a second gold disc pendant so you can cover the evil eye if you wish.

Pyrrha

Danielle is one half of the duo behind Pyrrha. She’s a Canadian designer who stays true to her roots. Along with her husband, Danielle is committed to designing jewelry the way she wants--even if that means doing it the “wrong way.”

Danielle and Pyrrha have been handcrafting jewelry since 1995 using traditional jewelry making techniques. The real breakthrough came in 2000, however, at an estate sale. It was there she found a box of badly damaged wax seals that have now become her signature.

From that find at an estate sale, Daniella was inspired to elevate the beauty of imperfection. The desire to do no harm while making the world a better place continues to drive Pyrrha forward through sustainable materials and unique, meaningful jewelry pieces.

Our Favourite Pieces from Pyrrha

I Am Enough Necklace

The I Am Enough Necklace is as meaningful as it is beautiful. This daily reminder is intentionally written backwards, so you can look in the mirror and remind yourself that you are enough.

Family Above All Necklace

This talisman pendant reads “Familia Supra Omnia,” which is Latin for “Family Above All.” The Family Above All Necklace reminds us of what’s important in life, with the added symbolism of an oak tree and winged heart.

Medium Cable Silver Chain

The Medium Cable Silver Chain is beautiful on its own or paired with another Pyrrha talisman or charm. The curb chain design and oxidized silver give this chain a unique, vintage feel.

Electric Picks

MJ Carlson is the CEO of Electric Picks, allowing her to combine her passion for design and business. Growing up, MJ made and sold friendship bracelets to other kids in the neighbourhood. Today, she continues to grow Electric Picks while growing her family.

Electric Picks isn’t your average jewelry line; it’s jewelry that tells a story. MJ, along with her co-founder and bestie Chantel, scour vintage stores for pieces that need a little TLC. Along with refurbished vintage finds, Electric Picks has a number of original pieces as well.

“Not just another gold chain” is Electric Picks’ motto, and MJ holds true to that mission. Her jewelry features unique combinations of chains, charms, and natural elements. Together, the pieces can be endlessly mixed, allowing you to create your own story through jewelry.
