Welcome to AnimalStone,
We are a family owned, Womxn run business, based out of Toronto, Canada.
AnimalStone was born of a shared love and respect for Animals, our wildlife and a deep commitment to our planet.
The company was founded on the principle that a symbiotic relationship is needed between us and nature, humans and animals in order to conserve our shared place here. We believe in the joy that animals bring to our lives and are an essential component to our ecological systems. Together, we must celebrate and respect their majesty.
We are the AnimalStone family, Connecting Animals to People through 3D Solid Sterling Silver & Solid 14K Gold Animal Charms. We are a team of dedicated animal and nature lovers, committed to the future our planet, and all living beings depending on our right action for survival.
One of the most valuable experiences in this world is our own intimate connection with animals that tell a story. Experience AnimalStone and share your story with us.
From our family to yours,
AnimalStone & Co.
AnimalStone is a purveyor of luxury animal-inspired jewellery.
Our company was founded on the principal that animals have shared this planet with us since time immemorial. Some of the earliest works of human art and storytelling were through petroglyphs and pictographs.
These animal depictions were found on the walls of caves, live rock surfaces and stand alone rocks which captured the texture and movement of these magnificent beings as being worthy of respect and representation by our early human ancestors.
With the help of Toronto-based designer Delane Cooper, we have made it our mission to create timeless wearable art that pays homage to our animal family by giving texture and life to each and every piece.
It is our sincere hope that our jewellery serves as a constant reminder of the profound majesty of our animal kingdom, of our place within it and most importantly, that the natural world is fine art in and of itself.
About the Designer
Delane Cooper is a Dreamatizer, goldsmith and artist who expresses her creativity by making beautiful pieces that are accompanied with a story for the wearer.
As a young child, storytime was the perfect opportunity for Delane to engage her imagination whether at the library to conjure up make-believe friends or creating a story to travel to far away lands while tucked away in her wood-scented wardrobe in her bedroom. Today, she blends meditation and dreaming to tell visual, wearable stories.
Designing and creating for AnimalsStone allows Delane and her alter ego, Mr. Farnum, to connect with each animal through their curiosity in telling each animal's unique story so the jewellery feels authentic to the wearer. It’s this interaction with the animals that allow them to appreciate their part in the circle of life and are grateful to see the animals for what they are beauty captured through jewellery.
