Fitz & Fur is a jewelry collection created by Toronto based stylist, Roslyn Griffith Hall. Reclaimed is Fitz & Fur’s style. Throughout her travels, Roslyn attended vintage markets and estate sales and like many antiquing junkies she acquired a lot of things. There are so many objects used in the jewellery like watches, thimbles, skulls, heart-shaped lockets, lockets, keys, coins, letters, rings, pendants, spoons and guitar picks. Fitz & Fur uses those vintage finds for bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
I had some vacation time recently and went to Roz’s cool little studio in my neighbourhood to check out the collection in person.
Fitz & Fur uses religious imagery as inspiration. The cross is a comment element found in many pieces and makes rosaries using skull shaped bone beads from Thailand. She has recast the beads in silver because it’s becoming hard to find the bone ones in Thailand.
The charm bracelets and everything but the kitchen sink necklaces are my favourites from Fitz & Fur.Â There is so much detail in the necklaces that you never get bored looking at it.
A lot of the pieces now are one of a kind but Roz is casting items forÂ reuse. Â IÂ gravitateÂ to the reclaimed items the most in the collection. For those that like something a bit more minimal there the metal chain items of the collection that plays withÂ different sizes and lengths.
