Bringing Foxy to a New Level

I have been a fan of Foxy Originals for some time. I wasn't sure about doing it as a blog post, because it seems that their merchandise is readily available and out in the public eye. However, I have decided to write about them because every time I'm wearing one of their pieces and I tell someone it is a Foxy Original, they look at me with a blank stare and I feel like I have been talking gibberish. To be honest, I am quite shocked that not more people know of this wonderful Canadian design team and company. I think it is a great success story.
You can visit their website for the story on how the company came to be and to take a look at their collections. Right now the best thing going for them is their Barbie Collection, since they are celebrating that anniversary and all this year. All their jewelry is made from lead free pewter and dipped in gold, silver or bronze. For certain pieces other materials are added for variety and a different look. Some of my favourite pieces are: Palm Earrings (see image), Soul Necklace, Rose Ring, Juniper Necklace (see image) and the Utopia Necklace. I could keep going but I'm going to stop there. Foxy Originals recently made their site a shopping site so you can point and click right there to get all the pieces you want. My biggest complaint used to be not being able to find the pieces I liked in stores but now I don't have to worry. This also means as soon as their new pieces come out, we will be able to have them within a few days, or weeks.
Help spread the word. I'm wondering if renting a plane and sky writing "Foxy Originals" in the air would do the trick?

Yes! I'm so glad you wrote about Foxy Originals!

I didn't even really know I was a fan until I lost an earring recently. It was gorgeous and I wore them all the time. After I had lost it I started looking through jewellery cases hoping that somehow, magically, years later, I would be able to replace my lost earring. Imagine my surprise when I saw them at the Bay! I bought a new pair immediately and with my new-found recognition of Foxy I took a look at their website.

The only reason I'm not buying about 12 different things is that I'm saving my money for my vacation. They have great jewellery. There are so many pieces I love.

And now, when I go out with my Foxy earrings and people ask where I got them... you know that I'll be telling them Foxy!

Ooops. Meant to mention that my earrings are called Lilith. I have them in the gold colour and really, really love them. :)
