My Business Is:
POC and Women Owned
Hi, I’m Jaycika Gill the owner and maker at Souffle Studio. I’m originally a graphic designer from New Delhi, India and then moved to Beautiful British Columbia, Canada; I love surrounding myself with beautiful unique things and I’m extremely passionate about hands-on making. So, Soufflé Studio is that passion, that dream turned into my happy reality. On my creative journey, I was introduced to polymer clay through a friend in 2018 and was blown away by it’s form and it’s ability to be a therapeutic art form. I believe that clay offers endless creative possibilities in transforming imagination into wearable tangibles and this spurs continuous motivation in the pursuit of my creative dream.
If you are buying my jewelry, you are supporting this creative dream. Every piece is slow made by me in my Lower mainland Vancouver studio, with the core intention to make you confident in looking and feeling your best. Each of our pieces are meticulously handcrafted— individually designed, pigmented, sculpted, and detailed by hand from start to finish while striving to create meaningful, accessible, unique and customizable handcrafted jewelry to serve as functional art for your ears. Unlike mass produced, fast fashion, our pieces embody attention to detail and high quality craftsmanship as the forefront of every Soufflé Studio design.
I’m beyond excited that you’ve taken the time to learn a little about me. I absolutely love what I do and hope that you find something you love, that enhances your individuality and that you can wear with a smile. I truly believe that EVERYBODY deserves to feel amazing and beautiful! I sincerely hope that you’ll appreciate the earrings as much as I enjoy crafting them.
Established in July 2020, Soufflé Studio is a small-batch jewelry brand inspired by strong and empowering women. Every piece is slowmade by Jaycika Gill in her Lower mainland Vancouver studio, with the core intention to make you confident in looking and feeling your best. Each of our pieces are meticulously handcrafted— individually designed, pigmented, sculpted, and detailed by hand from start to finish while striving to create meaningful, accessible, unique and customizable handcrafted jewelry to serve as functional art for your ears.
A Must-Have Product Is:
Our best-sellers, the Starry Night dangles are inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. Each detail is individually designed, pigmented, sculpted, and detailed by hand from start to finish making them truly unique pieces of art.
We also offer a custom order service where I would work with you and communicate back and forth to make a one of a kind design that either you envisioned or is a meaningful design that you’d like to convert into earrings!
To Me, Supporting Local Means:
Being a small business owner, artist and a avid hobbyist, I’ve always passionately supported small local businesses as they are the heart and soul of our local economy. Local products are often slow made, with an attention to detail and quality (like offering sustainable packaging, producing minimal waste, donating to causes and unique craftsmanship). They provide employment to locals and work with local resources and therefore are able to drive the local economy in so many ways.
As a brand, we are very passionate about sustainable fashion and believe in mindful making—that it’s not about a few people doing zero waste perfectly but rather many people making the right choices where they can. All packaging items including our cute jewelry storage pouches are either recyclable, recycled or reusable. And, they are sourced from ethical and sustainably focused companies. All our scrap and off-cuts are always re-used. Meanwhile, we continue to learn and evolve each day towards more sustainable practices.
For all those curious, our brand name Soufflé Studio was inspired by the name and property of a type of polymer clay called “soufflé” that we use to make our pieces. Furthermore, our making process involves baking them into cute little gems, just like you would make a traditional soufflé dessert!
Choosing to shop small makes the world a better place—thank you for supporting a small business. We are beyond excited that you’ve taken the time to learn a little about our brand.
