Tilly D'Oro

I'm truly excited to present to you Tilly D'Oro, a line of handmade earrings and accessories created by local Montreal designer Nogah Rostein.

We stumbled upon Nogahs designs at the Puces POP, during POP Montreal (where we also had a table) and I fell in love with the vintagy yet modernized look that she creates with her work. Each piece is a unique combination of old and new materials, and her colour combinations are unexpected yet somehow perfect. The busy designer has told me she loves scouting flea markets and estate sales for special finds; vintage beads, stones, silly charms, anything colorful, fun and infused with history.

With these hidden treasures she creates one-of a kind gems, and I really do mean one of a kind, you can just feel the thoughtfulness that went into each piece, like your best friend made it as a present just for you!

Although so far HQ has had strictly earrings from this line, Nogah has added amazing brooches to the mix, made of layers of recycled sweaters decorated with tiny mirors shaped like unicorns and disco dancers. Perfect for adding some brightness to these dreary winter blues. Sometimes you need a little something to jazz up your grey winter coat, oh and also you can secretly reflect light into peoples eyes when you're riding the bus. Fun!

I agree, Nogah's jewelry is amazing. I recently bought a pair of great earrings at Preloved in Montreal, I love them! They are such a unique pair of earrings for a reasonable price!!!
Glad to hear your carrying the line as well!

Nogah's earings and brooches are amazing little pieces of art!
I own a few of each and am constantly showered with compliments and admiration. She is a very creative and inspiring arist and it shows in everything she creates!!

Definitely, her stuff is the kind of thing that EVERY time you wear them you get at least one compliment. Who doesn't love that?!

We will definitely continue to carry this bee-utiful line, we think it's a perfect fit for HQ!
