Gift and Book Stores
We welcome all of our customers to come in for a visit. If you make a trip to Vancouver Island, please drive out to Sooke and introduce yourself.
While we continue to retail our jewelry to nearly 225 jewelry stores around British Columbia, in addition to selling our current inventory and custom jewelry pieces on the internet, we have also opened this gift store.

Master Carver Brett Borie
Brett has worked for over 20 years to perfect the fine art of hand carving precious metals: Gold, Silver and Platinum.
Brett is self-taught, and his years of patient study and practice have culminated in a unique line of exquisite jewelry.
In 1999 Brett and Kathy opened their home-based business on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Each piece of jewelry is designed and handcrafted by Brett, with design assistance from Kathy.
Delicately proportioned and precisely carved. Brett’s work is characterized by a fine sense of restraint and balance which is identifiably his own.
Brett’s work predominantly features Canadian Wildlife but he can literally carve any design your heart desires. Give him a sketch and he’ll take it from there.
