Wasted Effort is bold, straightforward jewelry: clean lines, minimalist shapes and effortlessly wearable pieces make up this line of futuristic classics. Our latest collection, Genesis, is inspired by the myth of creation and the powerful representation of female and organic forms, illustrated in our classic minimalist graphic style.
Traditional metalsmithing techniques in sterling silver and brass are coupled with non-traditional materials, such as plexiglass, to create unique pieces designed to fit seamlessly into the wearer’s everyday rotation. This small-batch jewelry line from East Vancouver is designed and entirely hand-made by a mathematician; flowing through every collection is a geometric precision and simplicity that lends versatility to each piece.
All of our jewelry is lovingly cut, shaped, soldered and polished by hand, piece-by-piece.
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of raw crystals, each piece is as strong, unique and modern as the person wearing it. With an emphasis on quality, wearability and just that little bit of edge, Blue Trimble’s contemporary designs are a fresh and inclusive take on the art of adornment. The line offers one-of-a-kind items, popular favourites and custom pieces. Merging clean lines with bold crystals, natural elements and beautiful detailing, each piece is carefully handcrafted using quality components and locally sourced materials wherever possible. Blue Trimble Designs is the creative venture of Vancouver, BC based jewelry maker Ann Glauser.
