about

Hi I'm Ariel - owner and designer of DON'T WORRY DESIGNS 🖤

I have been creating for as long as I can remember. I studied drawing and painting at OCAD University, and this experience eventually led me to jewelry design. I love exploring colour, texture, pattern, and geometric shapes to create things that are fun, bright and bold. As an artist, I get my inspiration from sculpture, interior and graphic design, architecture, and textiles. 

All of my designs are handmade by me in my home studio in Stratford, Ontario. 

 

 

I started DWD in Jan 2021 while living downtown Toronto with my fiancé Alex and my fur son Milhouse. Making jewelry was a way to keep myself busy and better manage my increasing anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Throughout Jan and Feb 2021, 5% of every sale was donated to the Centre of Mental Health and Addiction (CAMH) to support their COVID-19 Mental Health Resiliency & Coping Fund.

 

In March and April, we donated to The Redwood, an incredible women's shelter in downtown Toronto. They provide support and shelter for women and children fleeing abuse so they can begin to heal and rebuild their lives.

Throughout May and June, donations were collected for the Etobicoke Humane Society.

In July and August, we helped raise funds for the Indian Residential School Survivors Society and The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund in September and October.

To wrap up 2021, we donated to support Holiday Helpers, an organization that provides Christmas packages to families with young children living in low-income situations.

In 2022, we will be focusing our donations on the Centre of Mental Health and Addiction (CAMH) and the important work they're doing here in Ontario. 

Thank you for your support and cheers to another year! 🖤

 xo,
Ariel
