About Us

Laurie was born in the Euro-flavoured city of Montreal, Quebec, so it was inevitable that she learned how to throw on a scarf and say “Ooh lala, je ne sais quoi.  I imagine it was my first sight of sparkling, holiday lights on that snowy Christmas Eve when I was just 7 months old, that really captivated me and I’ve been crazy for beautiful ‘sparklies’ ever since.”

Early forays into fashion (okay…dress-up..) and later interests in architecture, film noir, literature, theatre and art history culminated in a college scholarship and a BFA degree at university. Laurie draws on her fine arts background and a lifelong fascination with beauty and design to inspire her colorful creations. While doing wardrobe on Broadway touring shows, she began to make jewellery. It was only when asked by the stars she worked with where they could get her pieces, that a bijoux business was born.

Laurie’s jewellery has been in almost a dozen locations around BC, but is now concentrated in very large collections in selected stores. Her playfully named bijoux collections embrace many eras and ecclectic styles using lustrous, fresh-water pearls, semi-precious gemstones, sparkling crystals, rare and vintage ‘treasures’ and exotic beads from around the world.
