This is perhaps the very first “Lena Loves…” feature where I don’t actually have to write a word – pictures of Foxy Originals alone are enough to make a girl swoon. However, for the 0.01% of readers who aren’t familiar with the brand, allow me to introduce you…
Seriously, who doesn’t love Foxy Originals? They make fiercely fashionable jewelry at an affordable price and have long been a cult favourite for sassy sirens everywhere. I was first introduced to the jewelry by my bestie Victoria, who had discovered them at the One of a Kind Art Show in Toronto. If you can believe it, this was long before Internet shopping was the norm, so I actually had to wait until the next show to check them out.
Boy, was I ever hooked. If you’ve got flair for fashion, you’ll love their uniquely styled pieces that feature colourful enamel designs, innovative shapes and clean lines. They are also one of the pioneers of the reversible necklace – with complementary artwork and shades, you’ll always get two fresh and funky looks for the price of one.
Who is Foxy?
Designers Jen Kluger and Suzie Orol met while studying at the University of Western Ontario, and quickly discovered their shared passion for bracelets and baubles. They decided to focus their combined talents on a single vision and founded Foxy Originals.
Foxy jewelry is designed and made in Toronto, Canada where it is assembled by a small production team of skilled craftspeople whose true pride and workmanship is evident in the high quality of each Foxy creation. All Foxy jewelry is made from lead free pewter and is hand dipped in 14 karat Gold, Silver or Bronze. Each piece of handmade jewelry is then stamped with the Foxy signature to authenticate the designs.
My stash of Foxy includes necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets – and I can’t deny that the “Soho” cufflinks just caught my eye. Maybe a birthday present for the husband?
Speaking of hubby, he’s not very happy that my Foxy Originals loot is strewn carelessly throughout our home. A bracelet on top of Ryder’s dresser. A pair of earrings beside the bathroom sink. And his personal favourite – discovering a necklace wedged in between a book as a makeshift bookmark. I was able to find a few pieces to take a snapshot sitting in a Foxy travel case – perfect for taking jewelry-to-go. (Click to enlarge photo.)
As you can see, I’m a necklace gal; I love how the bright colours add a splash of vibrancy, and of course, appreciate the intricate workings of the metal pieces. I also have my fair share of Foxy ear candy, and I’m a bit bummed that I couldn’t find my Lilith earrings to include in the photo – I’m not embarrassed to admit that I saw a pic of Paris Hilton sporting the earrings and ran out to buy them the same day :)
Just as important as their trend setting pieces is Foxy’s commitment to social awareness – they have worked in collaboration with many community organizations to design and create unique jewelry pieces to raise funds for important causes, including the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario, Bloorview Kids Rehab and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
