Oxford earrings in powdercoated stainless steel by South Australian artist Marie-Pier Labelle

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Born in Montréal, Canada, Marie-Pier Labelle moved to Australia in 2004 after completing a Bachelors of Fine Art majoring in cinematography. She worked in the camera department on feature films for a decade before starting her own jewellery brand after finishing silversmithing classes at JamFactory in Adelaide.

Founded in 2011, Days of August's signature look comes from it's unconventional use of industrial grade stainless steel - a material not typically used to make jewellery - which meant reinventing and adapting traditional fabrication techniques to accomodate it's solidity and strength.

Stainless steel perfectly complements Marie-Pier's design style - minimal and intentionally simple - and with it she creates architectural and contemporary statement pieces. Believing in timelessness over trends, she combines clean lines and considered composition to create wearable jewellery essentials that transcend the seasons.

With a focus on sustainability, Marie-Pier put into place eco friendly manufacturing practices from the start, and is now partnering with Ecologi to offset her environmental footprint, making Days of August a 100% carbon neutral business.
