Brightly & Lilian Jewelry is a small business based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with a passion for creating wearable artforms that help heal and connect communities. Through our jewelry, we aim to channel our hopes, dreams, resilience, and heartfelt lessons into meaningful expressions that can be collectively appreciated.
Our founder, Lilian, was inspired by the pure gold heirloom necklace that her mother gave her, which conveyed love, pain, warmth, well wishes, and endless yearning. She realized that understanding the meaning behind our experiences can help us heal and grow, and that art can be a powerful tool for connecting with others. With the same courage and kindness that her mother showed her, Lilian started our shop to share her vision with the world.
At Brightly & Lilian Jewelry, we believe that our jewelry is more than just accessories; they are expressions of our emotions, experiences, and identity. Whether you're looking for engagement rings, necklaces, bracelets, or earrings, we have a wide range of designs to suit your style and personality. We also offer custom jewelry services to help you create a unique piece that reflects your story.

Who Are We
My name is Lilian - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Brightly & Lilian Jewelry is my expression project. Jewelry is the medium through which I use to document the important lessons in life, both good and bad. Jewelry is my art with meaning, and through jewelry and its symbolic representations, I find the space to heal. Starting a business was never in the plans; but here I am, living something new. Brightly & Lilian Jewelry is a story of hope and reciprocity, as we create a community that connects through the things we’ve experienced. Outside of this collective, I am an occupational therapist who enjoys helping my clients overcome barriers so they can continue doing the activities that bring joy and value to their lives. I’m also a story-teller, a poet, a learner and a connection weaver.
Also, please bear with me as I practice my photography skills and continue to learn and practice from my nook in my apartment.

“I've done a great deal of falling down. I can't afford the piece right now, but I thank you for the message. We don't just have to get back up when we're down. Thanks for reminding me it is okay to be down" - in reference to the piece "Morning Light - Falling down is a part of growing up"
A quote that resonates with me today: "Self care today is choosing to not associate with one who is committed to misunderstanding you."
As I approach the completion of my master's degree, I must remember that "education makes us better people, and NOT better than people."
