Studio 1098, an artisan shop located in Toronto, has released a special series called the 'Canadian Collection' in honor of the 150th anniversary of the northern nation's confederation. The collection includes bracelets, necklaces, cuff links, tie clips, and earrings that all reference some aspect of Canadian geography or culture.
In 1867, Canada passed the Constitution Act, enshrining its governmental independence from the United Kingdom and setting in motion the modern idea of the North American nation. The Studio 1098's Canadian Collection celebrates that major milestone with handcrafted, often cheeky pieces of jewelry.
The central piece in the collection is The Confederation Bracelet, a charm bracelet that features 13 charms shaped like each of the provinces and territories. Studio 1098 also offers earrings and cuff links in these same shapes, as well as other jewelry shaped like Canadian nickels, maple leaves, and basketball and hockey equipment.
