From thick body chains to festival-ready headpieces, hand chains, and more, BRIWOK offers rad handmade jewelry for the fiery, rebellious spirit within us all. Bella Maas Boutique is proud to offer this handmade jewelry line right here in Edmonton, which holds a powerful story and meaning behind its creation.
Taryn and Bri met on a sticky dance floor one night in a bar in Nevada. They became fast, and inevitably best friends as they battled the four years of college together. Bri was a girl who stood out as a beautifully vibrant person both inside and out with an unmatchable personality.
Her style was as unique as she was as she was always adorned with different leathers, feathers, teeth, and bones. Her signature piece was handcrafted bear tooth necklace taken from a bear her father was forced to shoot off of their back porch. Bri was raised in the wilderness and her distinctive style mirrored her upbringing.
In 2009 Bri was tragically killed while on her bike back home for summer vacation—this was absolutely devastating for Taryn. Rather than sit down and do nothing, Taryn channeled her pain into motivation to live both spiritually and passionately in memory of her vivacious friend.
Through this journey, Taryn eventually followed her dreams and created BRIWOK, a jewelry brand that incorporates raw, natural elements in very unique and imaginative designs. The various collections and pieces within them all tell a story of a lost soul sister who was truly wild at heart, like the Graceland collection which is jewelry that is intended to take you to your happy place with beautiful beads, pretty rose gold, gorgeous aventurine in every shape, style, and fit you could want.
Let your inner wild side show by adorning yourself with BRIWOK—beautiful jewelry with a message.
