Sept 17th, 2015                                                          "An Evening of Intrigue & Fantasy"                  The Waterfall Building

Held at The Waterfall Building in Vancouver, this was a red carpet event, beginning with a welcome cocktail or mocktail and a beautifully inviting space.  From Emcee, Symone Says, we got an ongoing, "You're special" smile all evening.  No-one wanted to the evening to end!  Songs for Carolyn and for us, from Marilou Catanjal, made us sing along and celebrate the glitter and glamour of the pieces, and how they shone on the models and on the many fans, who happily showed off what they already owned and loved, and, throughout the evening, bought new additions for their collections.
Lots of opportunity to chat, dance and parade around in our new rings and necklaces! 
Thanks for inspired and thoughtful planning, Victoria and team, and for your out of this world creations, Carolyn!  Imagine, a beyond perfect evening and then a goody bag as another thank you.
Simply the best, all! For more information visit Carolyn Bruce Designs.

Victoria Clements and team of ambassadors, stylists, mixologists, musicians, florists, models, sponsors, volunteers and more, created a fabulous showcase for the extraordinary jewelry and designs by Carolyn Bruce.
