One of my very favourite things about owning Keltie Leanne Designs is the chance to connect and work with other entrepreneurs and independent designers.
So naturally, when Jessica from New Westminster-based Power Of My People asked if our jewels could be included in their Spring 2018 Lookbook, I was thrilled!
Of course, it didn't hurt that Jessica and her partner Kyle's 100% linen creations are completely swoon-worthy.
We're over the moon with the images taken by talented photographer, Marlon Vizcayno, and love how perfectly models Natalie Cho and Sarah Ferguson capture the dreamy vibe from this shoot. (We thought it a very happy coincidence that Sarah had also recently been the face of our FW'17 collection!)
You can shop Power Of My People's beautiful collection and view the full lookbook here.

I have some HUGE news that I can't wait to share with you today.
My partner and I have been dreaming and scheming about some major life changes these last few months, and are on the precipice of a big move - both figuratively and literally speaking.
In less than three short weeks, Chris, our little Mexi-mutt, Shira, and I will be relocating to Munich, Germany for exciting new opportunities, adventure and inspiration!
As some of you may know, Chris is German and we have always hoped that one day we'd have the chance to explore his home country together and to immerse ourselves in European culture, lifestyle and travel.
Timing and opportunity recently aligned, so we've decided to take a leap of faith and go spend the next two or so years living on the doorstep of Europe's amazing sights, experiences and flavours.
What does this new journey mean for Keltie Leanne Designs? Munich is regarded by many as the jewellery capital of Germany and the industry blends a rich history of craftsmanship with independent and contemporary design. Considered one of the world's most beautiful and liveable cities, and located in close proximity to the Alps, Munich promises to hold no shortage of daily inspiration for my creations.
I also can't wait to show you behind-the-scenes of my adventures and new life in Europe. You can expect to see exciting collaborations, travel photos and an ongoing evolution of my collection as I explore intriguing places and create fresh experiences abroad.
For our Canadian and U.S. customers, your orders will continue to ship from our team in Vancouver to ensure you quickly receive your purchases.
We also will continue to grow our presence in your favourite local shops - if there's a boutique where you'd like to find our designs, I'd love to hear from you so that I can connect with them!
To celebrate my upcoming move - and to make space for the new things to come - we'll be hosting a mega 3-day sample sale at this weekend's Vancouver Gem & Mineral Show.
One-of-a-kind, previous collection designs and sample sale pieces will all be available as part of this exclusive sale. I can promise you that if you're in Vancouver, this is an event you definitely do not want to miss!
I can't wait to share more details about our big move soon.
Because love is love.
Wishing you and the ones you love a Happy Valentine's Day!
As we've seen so powerfully in recent months, women who advocate for the well-being of themselves and the world around them have the ability to create waves of positive change.
From February 1st - 15th, 20% of Keltie Leanne online and pop-up event sales will be donated to Dress for Success Vancouver, so this organization can continue their mission of providing the tools, resources, and attire to help women grow their economic independence.
My hope in contributing to a cause like Dress for Success is that the women in our community can continue to gain strength and confidence, education, and overall well-being that will not only benefit their own lives but have a ripple effect that knows no bounds.
If you are in Vancouver, you can also shop our pieces in person at YES! Vancouver's 10 for 10 Anniversary Celebration on February 8th. Not only will 20% of your purchase be donated to Dress For Sucess, but 100% of ticket sales for this fun soirée will support this awesome cause! Tickets are available here.
We have a busy month ahead, with ample opportunity for you to shop our newest collection of jewels!
