Craft Council of BC, 1386 Cartwright Street
Granville Island, Vancouver
one night only event!

We believe that one can never have enough fun nights out or enough earrings! That is why the Craft Council of British Columbia invites you to The Earring Show. This one night only fundraiser features earrings made by talented artists in every shape, size, material and concept. The perfect night to treat yourself to your first piece of art jewellery or add to your collection. Don’t want to miss out on the best selection? Make sure you and your friends come early!

This fabulous evening will raise funds for some much needed renovations to our beloved Crafthouse. She hasn’t been significantly renovated since 1986 and really needs you to help by purchasing a ticket to the Show and a pair (or a few pairs) of gorgeous earrings.Think of The Earring Show as being like a candy shop but for your earlobes!

Featuring unique contemporary designs from: Bridget Catchpole, Vilya Ou, Jan Smith, Luyi Wang, Juliet 925, Sinem Akin (Wanna Collection), ZULA Jewellery + Design, Guiletta Designs, Sarah Elliot, Rhona Law, Louise Perrone, Mikel Grant Jewellery, Patsy Kay Kolesar Design, Terry Wu Jewelry, heyday design, Even Designs, Billy Would Designs, Kate Barazzuol Jewelry and more!
