kisii was created in 2012 as a way to explore and practice mindfulness through making.
The shop is rooted in my love of traditional folk crafts with a focus on fundraising. The shop began with the intention of fundraising for two hospitals that have done amazing work for me personally - Mount Sinai Hospital & Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. I wanted to give back and decided to start making bracelets and donating proceeds towards cancer research. While I continue to fundraise for this cause, I have also enjoyed collaborating with environmental organizations, conservationists, and other local and global charities.
While browsing the shop, you'll find all sorts of items such as handmade jewellery, pocket journals, wildflower seed kits and tools for meditation (simple designs that make me happy). I'm currently learning to weave and hope to add some textiles into the shop soon too. When I'm not keeping busy in my home studio, I'm also a teacher and writer and love being surrounded by nature. As you might notice, many of the items in the shop are inspired by words and nature.
It has been an unpredictable adventure and I've learned so many things along the way. It makes me happy to create something that may bring happiness to someone else and I'm eternally grateful for the encouragement I've received.

I have had the pleasure of working with great people on some really fun designs, and projects for extra special occasions. My favourite custom work has been designing the official bracelet for the Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada. Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have. I would love to work with you.
Studios & Retreats
I love working with studios to design custom pieces made just for your special people. One of my favourite collaborations was with Union Yoga Studio to create bracelets for all of the candidates in the Yoga Teacher Training program that they offered. The colourful, recycled glass beaded bracelets and fair-trade charms paid homage to the beautiful work that this studio is doing in their community. It was a real treat to work with them and become a part of the Union Yoga Family. That's what collaboration is all about - connecting minds + hearts + communities.
Please contact me if you're interested in working together :)
Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. Partial proceeds from every sale are donated towards research initiatives for the Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada. Since 2012, over $3,500 has been donated towards the cause. Thanks for helping me pay it forward!

CARE To maintain a long life for your jewellery, it is not advised to wear them in the water. The ceramic bowls have been finished with a waterproof glaze, but they will last longest if gently washed by hand with a mild soap.
