For some people, money talks. But for Vancouver’s Amanda He, it wasn’t enough. After leaving a career as an investment banker for her true passion, design, she launched Rocaille (rocaille-design.com), a collection of sparkly necklaces and bracelets that are perfect as holiday dress accoutrements or, of course, gifts. He named her line after the opulent, romantic rococo style that originated in 18th century Europe and the logo, two seahorses comes from the designer’s favourite piece of jewellery, a 1950s seahorse brooch she found in Portland. Rocaille’s one-of-a-kind pieces are part art deco, part modern drama, part playful and fun—and perfect for a winter fête.
