SUSTAINABLE STYLE

We are MiKa Boutique, based on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada

Our passion for creating beautiful, sustainable jewellery began a few years ago in Zihuatanejo Mexico, collecting empty (never live) shells on a very special, very private beach which can only be accessed by kayak. This beach is sheltered by a narrow entrance of perilous rock cliffs and can therefore only be accessed at a certain tide, so we would plan our outings very carefully to take advantage of the tides and weather.

As such, we consider each shell a precious gift from the ocean. In our “Zihua Shell” series of jewellery, we combine each shell thoughtfully with the semi precious stones that will match it’s personality and look. Given the unique nature of each shell, we can never make two pieces the same and rarely duplicate a similar design twice. We can, however, adjust the size of most Zihua Shells series bracelets by re-stringing according to customer request.

FUNCTIONAL & BEAUTIFUL

We are also proud to offer completely unique, hand crafted MiKa original walking sticks. Our crafter’s passion for creating sustainable, functional beauty in the form of walking sticks is borne out of necessity – as a runner and hiker he uses the stick in everyday life much as it was originally used for several centuries – as a support on uneven terrain.

Walking on the beautiful beaches and in the forests of the West Coast, hiding between the rocks and under crevices, one can find the most beautiful pieces of nature in the form of driftwood and roots. We will never cut live wood for our walking sticks, but instead will bring a piece of dead wood back to life – with painstaking attention to workmanship and detail, each piece is meticulously sanded and polished. We then add beautiful embellishments best suited to the character of the stick, such as brass handles, intricate leather binding, crystals, and sterling silver. The result is a work of beautiful, functional art in the form of a walking stick.

We always welcome requests for custom walking sticks.

WESTCOAST INSPIRED, WESTCOAST CRAFTED

Our jewellery and walking stick range represents the eclectic terrain, tones and textures of the West Coast environment by incorporating shells, semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls, crystals, sterling silver, and reclaimed wood. We are proud to offer handcrafted and sustainable jewellery with meaning. Crafted on the West Coast of British Columbia by local artisans.
