Allison Asis has created a socially responsible jewelry brand for the modern woman with a creative spirit, entitled, Cadette Jewelry. The line was made to connect with females who consciously seek eye-catching, meaningful designs that they can proudly wear as a means of self-expression.
Cadette Jewelry features contemporary pieces that are largely influenced by Allison's passion for modern art & design, nature, and the empowering women around her.
Each creation is diligently handmade by Allison in her Toronto-based home and studio using traditional metalsmith techniques. From drafting initial sketches, to using a fabrication or wax casting approach – Allison’s meticulous process allows her to create handmade, quality pieces that truly redefine modern luxury.
Allison values the importance of full transparency between maker & wearer. She shares ongoing clips of her work process, sources of inspiration, and more, through her YouTube videos, Cadette Journal and Instagram channel. It's her mission to inspire followers & clients to make conscious purchase decisions and constantly question how and where items are made.
Allison takes pride in the handmade process involved in each piece she creates. It's a critical approach that eliminates heavy waste & pollution that can otherwise result from machine-made jewelry. Moreover, Cadette Jewelry's handmade-focused business model reduces the carbon imprint that large international import & export leaves on the planet.
Ultimately, crafting each piece by hand provides the entire line with an artisanal essence and soul that can’t be replicated in mass-produced items.
