Brittany Hopkins inherited many things from her grandmother Anice, including her infectious joie de vivre and her magpie-like love for anything shimmering and sparkly. At her wee Ossington shop, named after the aforementioned grandmother, she transforms vintage jewels (be they out-of-fashion family heirlooms or sweet antique finds) into swoon-worthy contemporary pieces. The custom creations often feature delicate chains and stunning details like sesame-seed-sized pearls. Hopkins often goes on exotic jewel hunts, bringing back treasures from places like Morocco and Spain, and transforms those into collections she sells in the store.
