This Tuesday, Oct 27, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm, my favourite shop in Ottawa, Wunderkammer, is hosting a crazy fun event to launch a new jewelry line by one of the owners: Tamara Steinborn. The collection is a bit fancier than the already beautiful jewelry collections you usually find at Wunderkammer. The piece are bronze, some hammered and some cast from wax models; all of it is gorgeous and I want it all I WANT IT ALL. I can’t say enough about this store and the couple, Nathan and Tamara, who run it. It’s always full of cool, different jewelry (Tamara has the best taste ever) and other fun things like home decor, scarves and bags, and basically just awesome gifts for yourself and the people you like. These guys work tirelessly to make sure there’s always something new and exciting in store, and their prices are incredible. I literally have a “Wunderkammer budget” and I only allow myself to go there once a month because I know I’ll leave with a new bauble or three.
I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at some of the pieces in the Tamara Steinborn collection, and even take one home with me – this gorgeous arrowhead piece that is weighty and imperfect like a real weapon and badass as hell, if you ask me.
To celebrate the super moon, Fall, Halloween, and the new collection, Wunderkammer is having a party on October 27 and offering free, first-come first-served tarot card readings, henna, hand massages, treats, and of course, full access to all their new jewelry. I will be there with bells–and my new necklace–on. Who’s coming with me?
