We asked 5 questions to Jay!

Have you met Jay ?
Jay has a smile that melts Montreal's heart! He loves to strike a pose and get playful with make up, artistery and nails! Inchoo Bijoux was lucky to participate in a photoshoot with him shot by Julie W Photopgraphy in 2018! We dug up those wonderful shots with Julz lately and selected a bunch to make Jay our wonderful September Inchoo Babe!
Here are a few questions we asked him in a short interview!

1. What was your dream job as a kid? Is it different than what you do now ?
So I'm actually doing a project at the moment, I am creating my own company for nails, starting off easy with powder and resin, then I'll be adding more features. What i wanted to do as a kid( and working towards that right now) is being a Bus Driver, which is very different from working in mutual funds, which is what i do now.

2. Do you have a tag line to present you ?
My tag line is: I'm the best water sign you'll ever meet, anything you heard about Cancers, is undeniably true! My zodiac is Cancer, which is ruled bu the moon! (Don't tell anyone, but in my opinion, we are not that emotional).

3. On your Instagram, you talk a lot about body positivity, when did you start being more activist?
All my life, i was ashamed of being the "bigger kid". When i came out of the closet as gay, i saw that there was a whole world out there for bigger men, and people like that, i met amazing people (Maxime, more than anyone) that made me see that i am beautiful how i am, so for 2 years now, I've been saying that all the Thicc and juicies in the world will take over! Loving yourself, inside and out, is the best gift you can give yourself!

4. What is your favourite Inchoo Bijoux piece ?
I adore the minimal chain septum and also the studded cross stiletto nail ring! Those 2 pieces are absolutely gorgeous!

5. Who are your favourite Drag queens & Local Queens ?
I absolutely love RuPaul's Drag Race, huge fan, and I've seen everything, from regular seasons, to All Stars, to Celebrity Drag Race! My 3 Favourite queens have to be :
1 - Alaska
2- Shea Coulé
3- Bianca Del Rio
Special mention to : Jujubee and Raven because they are goddesses!

I'm very very proud to say that I'm loving Rita Baga, and she is killlllllling it in Canada's Drag Race! She deserves that crown, and i can't wait to celebrate her victory this year!

Bonus Question! : Name 5 items that people have to gather to summon your spirit.
I absolutely adore this question! My friends would have to summon me with : an iced cappuccino from Tim Hortons, a Polaroid camera, high fashion sunglasses, chicken wings and to top it off, a Friends DVD (season 6 preferably!).

Understanding Gold :
How Do Alloys work ?

Everyone knows what gold is, but most people do not know much more. You hear solid gold or gold plated, what does that information mean if you aren't a jeweller? You might have seen terms like 24K, 18K or even that it is pink, white or even yellow gold ... but what does that mean?

This short article will serve as a little starting guide to understanding gold and how it is used in jewelry making. As a social Media manager/ Event planner, I, Eve, will try to explain you what I've learned in the workshop with a simple vocabulary.

Gold has been used in societies for thousands of years. This material has always had an important place in our history for a variety of reasons. But how do you use this metal to make jewelry?

Holiday Shipping Guide 2020

November 01, 2020

Hi Witches, Ghouls, Dark Souls and Wanderers !
The Holiday season is just around the corner and we want to make sure you receive your jewels in time for the celebrations!

Please note that due to the Covid-19, we are trying our best to keep our 2-8 days turn around but it is possible that some will take a little longer to make and get ready for shipping. We are at reduced staff and we really want to take the time to create each piece with the biggest love and attention to detail.
We also recommend to order earlier this year, if you can, as most people are ordering online and carriers are also at reduced staff.

We have received so much love this years and have had the privilege to work on a ton of amazing custom projects. Just so there aren't any bad surprises, our cut off date for custom orders (jewelry that aren't in our existing collections) is on November 14th 2020. Custom orders received past this date will go to January 2021.
