A Passion For Joy

It’s the Little Things

Our new friends at Joydrop believe the little things in life are actually the big things. Starting in Calgary, they have since expanded to various stores, with their newest location being right here in Bower Place, having opened November, 2020. From statement-making earrings and nostalgic necklaces to eclectic rings and awe-inspiring accessories, they empower and spoil women through fashionable and accessible gifts.

With over 75 designers, Joydrop’s sophisticated products come from faraway places like Egypt and India, as well as our own backyard. They are proud to support Canadian artists, who are crafting Canadian jewelry, and they’ve become a market for thoughtful exchange, connection, and creativity.

One of their Canadian designers, Pyrrha, have achieved their sustainability values of becoming carbon-neutral. Another designer, Hailey Gerrits, approaches the same sustainable jewelry making process from a different point of view. She uses almost 100% repurposed and recycled vintage metal findings (check out her handmade Dusk Necklace; the rope necklace pictured left).

From materials they use to the causes they support and stories they tell, their designers create pretty things with a purpose. We, too, at Bower Place we are firm believers in being one step ahead of the game in creating a healthy, sustainable community—a match made in heaven!

Joydrop believes that no one knows you better than you. And your style is just one reflection of the woman you are and the path you are forging. With your unique style in mind, they mix and match different designers with different materials and aesthetics, resulting in looks that are totally you. Because YOU are a wonderful canvas to work with.

With jewellery, I personally like to keep it simple, delicate, and fun. I was delighted to see the different shopping categories on their website and was compelled to check out “Classic Queen” (although “Glam Goddess” had some amazing choices, too). I’m also loving opal lately! Here are some other must-haves (any other Virgo babies out there?!):

Marketing Coordinator

Maia is a classic Central Albertan gal who KNOWS her way around Bower Place . . . she grew up exploring it! If she’s not scouting the best of The Great Indoors, she’s probably strapping on her hiking pack to escape to the mountains or grabbing her cowboy boots (she’ll never say “no” to a rodeo). She has a love of free-spirited 70s vibes including eclectic accessories, bright colours, and fun patterns.
