Founded by Toronto designer Iris Lee, Blackiris Design offers a range of unique jewellery that reflects one's individuality. A lover of fairy tales, victorian-era films, Indian Maharaja jewels and all things theatrical, Iris' designs is a tapestry of visual influences.
Her work is Inspired by her love for Sci-Fi movies, space, fantasy, mother nature and sub-cultures. Some pieces are transformed from vintage materials, while others are wearable treasures made from leather, metal, wire, raw crystals and semi-precious stones. Her work is often a juxtaposition of natural and manmade materials. Each piece is one-of-a-kind or made limited in quantity, hand-crafted by Iris in her studio.
Iris's work was featured in the book Showcase 500 Art Necklaces by Lark Crafts, and magazine such as Auxiliary, Fashion Series, Veux and Estela. Her jewellery was also seen on TV show The Other Kingdom.
