As anyone living in Quebec, I have a particularly sentimental attachment to summer. Like a little kitten, I want to go crazy, run and jump all around. Or, at least, go out, meet people, and dress up! To dress up – a simple pleasure, available to us here 5 months in a year when we don’t need to hide everything under 25 layers of Canada Goose.
Here is my list of jewelry events in July, where you can find some pieces created locally in Montreal or simply to have fun, surrounded by beautiful things.
