About the Makers: Founded in 2011, Days of August's signature look comes from it's unconventional use of industrial grade stainless steel - a metal not typically used to make jewellery - which meant reinventing and adapting traditional fabrication techniques to accommodate its solidity and strength.
Stainless steel perfectly complements the maker, Marie-Pier, design style - minimal and intentionally simple - and with it she creates architectural and contemporary statement pieces. Believing in timelessness over trends, he combines clean lines and considered composition to create wearable jewellery essentials that transcend the seasons.
With a focus on sustainability, Marie-Pier put in place eco-friendly practices from the start, and is now partnering with Ecologi to offset her environmental footprint, making Days of August a 100% carbon neutral business.
