Jac-Out-Of-The-Box Jewelry

Jac-Out-Of-The-Box Jewelry is inspired by color, coastal living, and a love of fashion. Distinctive pieces are created to suit various styles. 

The designer has always loved creating. While taking her MBA, she discovered a local bead shop nearby and so began the love of jewelry making. It was the perfect match...a love of creating something, combined with her love of fashion. She uses various materials to create various styles and textures.

She had the opportunity to take some classes in metal-smithing jewelry which added a new dimension to the art of Jewelry making for her. 

After years of enjoying jewelry making as a hobby, she decided to start Jac-Out-Of-The-Box Jewelry in the Fall of 2012.

Jac-Out-Of-The Box Jewelry has been showcased in various award and film festival style lounges. As well as being featured as Find of the Month by Canadian Gift Guide.

Daval Beauty

DAVAL Beauty was created by a lipstick-loving chemical engineer. Following completion of her graduate studies and after working in various R&D sectors, she decided to experiment with formulating her own lipstick for personal use. This was due to the limited availability of affordable, highly pigmented, comfortable, long-wear lipsticks on the market. This hobby soon transformed into a small business following requests from friends and family for the product. 

All DAVAL lipsticks are handcrafted in small batches in Halifax, Nova Scotia with the synergy of science and beauty. They are continually working to optimize and refine their formula for your comfort and wear. With roots from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, they take a lot of pride in providing you with our best product and customer service. 

As vegetarians for over 20 years, it is very important to them that both their products and source ingredients are cruelty free and not tested on animals.

All of their lipstick shades are modeled after very special individuals in their lives (their muses). Like RoRo, aka Rochelle, she's their vibrant and spunky beauty. 

Dress those lips in DAVAL babe and support local. Their goal is to make you feel beautiful, confident, and empowered in a boldly pigmented, comfortable matte lipstick. They believe you can do anything you set your mind to! You got this.
