…and it represents my jewellery and GJ’s art! Just across the street is the lovely Dragon Alley which has 12 live/work town homes, most of which currently have shops or services in their ground floors. Arrogant Pirate is the newest of these. Opened by our friend Maelynn, the boutique has unique, one-of-a-kind art, jewellery, antiques and oddities. Steven Mehle, whose shop and studio is in Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, has his jewellery represented as well as mine. In a later post, I will showcase more of the shops and services in this unique tiny alley in Victoria BC.

Our journey with Arrogant Pirate began when GJ was asked to create the boutique sign.

I've had this beautiful silver three-strand clasp for a while. The original necklace I built for it didn't work, so I'm trying it on this one. I just hope it's strong enough to hold all these pearls!
