So long Vancouver.

East Side Culture Crawl

November 17th to 20th, 2016.

Join me for the last event in my Vancouver studio!

204 - 1000 Parker St.

Last event in my studio? Yes indeed. We have made a big move . . .

I've been though lots of changes in the past 5 years. I met my husband, and I’ve moved 4 times.

The latest move is going to be the last one for a very long time. We bought a house. A first for both of us. I had a condo in Vancouver before, but this is … different. Really different. We chose to move to a small, (what some would consider remote) community on the east coast of an island on the west coast of Canada. Courtenay, for those of you who know the area.

I grew up at the very bottom is this Island, so for me it’s like a very small full circle. I was born in Vancouver, grew up in Victoria, moved to Vancouver, as an adult, and now, at (dare I say) middle age, moved back to the Island. 

I'll continue to create vintage & salvaged reworked jewelry, just at a slower pace. Sales will be though my website, and the very occasional market. So keep up with me here on this site, or on my Instagram or Facebook.

So long Vancouver, it's been fun!

Lou Lou Magazine, upcoming shows, and holiday shipping

Posted on October 28, 2015 by Christi York | 0 comments

I was recently very chuffed to find out I'm featured as a part of the November gift guide in our very own national Lou Lou magazine! And so happy to be in such great company along with a few other local Vancouver designers (some of whom I know personally - fun!)

The issue goes live November 1st, but here's a sneak peak a couple of days early

 

The One of a Kind cuff featured has already been snapped up, but I still have a wonderful selection of other amazing cuffs available. Please check the "bracelets" section website for some of them.

Or visit me in person at one of my upcoming markets this holiday season. First up (and for first dibs) is Vancouver's super fun arts event of the season: The East Side Culture Crawl. Studio 204 at 1000 Parker Street will throw it's doors open once again. Looking forward to a rocking good time & hope to see you there.

If you can't make it to the Culture Crawl, check out my events page here for the two other holiday events I'm participating in this year.

Please note the deadlines for shipping if you are purchasing for Christmas gifts:

Christmas shipping to the USA: Please purchase and pay before December 9th.

Christmas shipping within Canada: Please purchase and pay before December 11th.

Vancouver area pick up available until Dec 16th.

Culture Crawl - my first time!

Posted on November 16, 2012 by Christi York | 0 comments

I moved my studio into the 1000 Parker Street building earlier this year, so this will be my first year participating in the huge arts event known as the East Side Culture Crawl. If you've never been, it's time you did! Artists throw open the doors of their studios and embrace the public to take a peek inside their daily creative worlds. 

1000 Parker is merely one of the buildings involved in the Crawl - but it's the biggest. It's an old maze of a building, with something new to discover around every corner and on every floor.

Friday November 16th is opening night. There might be wine and some small snacks. Come on by and check out my new space!
