Meet Andrea Di Paolo; Founder and Creative Director of Quartz & Canary
Tell us a bit about yourself and the story behind your brand.
Quartz & Canary is a jewelry company that was officially created in 2016 by Andrea Di Paolo, after almost a decade of experience within the jewelry industry. There was point in Andrea’s life where her own journey of self development met her love for jewelry. After years of becoming a sought after professional in the corporate world, Andrea began to make the transition to her life’s mission. The energy that gemstones carry sparked the idea of Quartz & Canary in 2014. After 6 years of organic growth post the companies launch, Andrea has now created her dream collection and is noted as a Canadian Jewelry Designer. Her style takes the ordinary to the extraordinary with simple changes and facets to each piece. Her collection of pieces consisting of ready to wear wellness envisions crystals in an entirely new way. As the company grows her efforts and art will continue to exceed the limits of healing jewelry. With the support of her design team this canary has no cage!
Growing up in a home with unique circumstances, Andrea took the diversity she faced and opted to transform these experiences as she dedicated her life to supporting others. Her brother Marco, is one of the reasons why the word Canary was used in the company name. As a person whom has been labeled autistic; advocacy and understanding have been themes within her life. Her call to empower others with or without a voice is imminent in her pursuit to create a company of value. Her father, whom was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease a young age imparted great wisdom upon her about the mind and body connection. Understanding this connection is why she also began creating jewelry with an impact. The female influences in her life allowed her to maintain her efforts and persevere with patience.
