A BIT ABOUT ME
I'm a Canadian designer handcrafting Lucite jewelry and accessories from my studio in Toronto. I’m drawn to Lucite for its ethereal nature: it turns your body into a suncatcher, and its crystalline effect changes with the light from day to night. My playful loops, knots, and twists make a modern statement with a whisper. Each of my pieces is one of a kind—a hand-bent, wearable work of art.
My goal is to create contemporary jewelry that brings BEAUTY, JOY, & PLAYFULNESS to the world!
WHAT MAKES COREY MORANIS GEMS SPECIAL?
“I was super obsessed with this material — I thought, ‘How do I get this on my body?’”
I was mesmerized by magical objects as a child—mood rings, healing crystals, glass slippers— but it wasn’t until I was studying textile design at OCAD University in Toronto that I started experimenting with crafting my own huge blocks of Lucite from scratch and translating this childhood energy into an adult sensibility of balance, style, and intention. I evolved this curious fascination into a coveted jewelry brand worn by Rihanna, Solange, and Kelsey Lu, and featured in fashion magazines including Vogue, ELLE, and Interview, and I was honoured to receive the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in the Accessories category at the 2019 Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards (CAFA).
