The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) collection consists of various jewelry pieces. The design was inspired by the generosity of the Firestone Family whose collection of Canadian Art will be housed at the OAG.
In particular, the inspiration of the jewelry collection came from the staircase of the Firestone home that has been preserved and will be installed as a working staircase in the new building of OAG.
In the TYI for OAG Collection you will find the inspiration that our designer, Tazim, saw in the stairwell and the geometric pattern of the surrounding walls. The cube pieces are a nod to the architecture of the new OAG building, an appropriate symbol of our donation from sales of the TYI for OAG collection to the new building capital fund .
It is very important for TYI to support the arts in our community and with your purchase you become part of this support. You can support the Ottawa Art Gallery by purchasing these handcrafted sterling silver items.
This unique custom-crafted neckpiece designed specifically for the OAG is for those with discerning taste. The piece has large silver beads and corundum semi-precious stones. Deliberately, the sterling silver Cube is placed on the side to bring attention to it.
This is a substantial piece and the designer was aware not to make this a heavy piece. Therefore the large silver beads are actually wax beads covered with sterling silver foil. Durable and stunning, you will enjoy this piece every time you wear it.
