Mark Lash designs include engagement rings, statement-making runway collections as well as affordable lifestyle pieces for both men and women.When you are invited to sip champagne and try on beautiful jewelry by a designer who has dressed Drake, Freida Pinto and Michael Buble (to name a few) - you don't say no! So, this is why last week I played dress up while sipping bubbly at the holiday launch for Mark Lash Fine Jewelry.
Mark Lash, a Toronto jeweler - has been creating fine jewelry using a variety of metals and gemstones (and gorgeous diamonds - hello!) for over 25 years. With his design and production studio housed in his store location in Richmond Hill, he also has a second location here in Toronto at 480 Eglinton Ave W., which is where I went last week. This store is beautiful and it's no wonder it won an ARIDO Award this year for it's exceptional interior design.
Mark Lash has a keen eye, incredible talent, and a determination that has driven his passion to be the successful business it is today. One of the interesting pieces of information I found out last week was that Mark Lash is renowned for his ability to create one of a kind custom pieces. You can work with him and his team directly to create a custom, one of a kind piece for yourself or a loved one within your budget. They will create sketches as well as wax molds to show you the design process and give you a better idea of what the final piece will look like.
With the holidays upon us, this is an amazing gift idea!
The Design by MARK LASH:Combating women’s brain disorders is a cause close to my heart. I have first-hand experience of the devastating impact on family and friends who have been afflicted and affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These high functioning, independent and loving individuals became a mere shadow of themselves.My inspiration for the Hope-Knot design came from the complexity and interconnectivity of the brain itself. I wanted to show the deterioration of the brain but I also wanted to keep the strength and beauty of the person intact.The Hope-Knot is a contemporary interpretation of the human brain. The open space represents how disease destroys a healthy brain while the intertwining aspect of the design represents how messages become scrambled as the disease progresses.The Hope-Knot can be worn by men and women to remind us all of the women in our lives – our mother, daughter, sister, partner or best friend – and how much we depend on their memories and insights.
