Stoneheart Jewellery was created by Kim Houghton & Chris Collier. Born and raised in Vancouver, Kim always had a passion for design and jewellery making. Chris on the other hand had a mind for business, so in 2012 they decided to partner up and create Stoneheart Jewellery. Fresh out of University in 2013 they began building the business. After spending about a year sourcing the right materials and creating a unique and well-made product, they decided to launch. They launched Stoneheart at a local tradeshow called the Vancouver Gift Expo, which quickly got them into their first few stores. After which, they began to sell their product at local markets around town. They continued expanding wholesaling and created an online store. Stoneheart instantly became a hit and you can still find Kim selling their products at local markets during the winter and summer months.
The idea behind Stoneheart was to create a unique and high quality piece of jewellery that could be worn any time day or night, casually or dressed up. Therefore all of Stoneheart jewellery is designed with a simplistic elegance in mind. Each piece is made using a mix of natural hand picked stones, sterling silver, genuine leather and some 14k gold.
They use a blend of hand carving methods & 3d printing technology to create their original custom Stoneheart pieces. Everything is then made using the centuries old technique of lost wax casting and then hand finished by Kim and Chris in their studio in Vancouver, British Columbia.
