Jackie prides herself on supporting the local YYC small business movement and thrives on connecting with others who care as deeply about the creative community.
Design and adventure have consistently been the pulse of Jackie's being and, so, it was only natural that her growing business, Lace Brick Design, birthed out of a solo, soul-searching trip to Vancouver Island, BC during the Spring of 2013. Walking past a bead store near Kits Beach, Vancouver, Jackie was drawn inside. Knowing that she would be spending hours on a beach, kicking up sand and counting waves, Jackie decided that she would dabble in the art of earring design (why not, right?). Jackie purchased all of the required supplies from the little bead store and voila, a week later she had handmade earrings coming out the wazoo! Adding these to the already accumulating pile of pretty little DIY creations in a corner of her home, Jackie knew her next step: Lace Brick Design.
Lace Brick Design is a lifestyle brand for the adventure-seeking female. In this light, they design jewelry, apparel & camping supply to empower passionate adventurers, travellers, lovers of the woods, full moon chasers, and backroad takers! Based near the heart of the Rockies in Calgary Alberta, Lace Brick Design is dedicated to building strong community vibes & styling passionate, fearless females! They are grateful for a tribe of 15k+ followers on Instagram and over 9800 Facebook peeps! Alongside their online shop, you can also find Lace Brick Design in 45+ stores across Canada, including Hallmark! Lace Brick Design is disrupting the outdoor-lifestyle market and empowering women to explore in style! (they even have their own hashtag #ponytailsandmountaintrails …how cool is that?!)
Alongside Lace Brick Design, Jackie holds numerous workshops on branding and social media. She loves to provide an avenue for local creatives to access entrepreneurial guidance and education. Topics range from social media expertise, brand styling, wholesale advice, photostyling tips, product photograph inspiration, market prep, networking ideas, simple website (self-) design tips and more! As the creative visionary behind Lace Brick Design, Jackie also offers her services as a brand styling expert in the following areas:
» copy writing + editing
» brand styling & marketing
» photo-styling/social media workshops
» guest speaker engagements
» rebrand education (workshops + 1:1 sessions)
» guest blogging
» social media management/takeover
» creative idea formation/implementation
What began as jewelry design has grown to become so much more: an adventure lifestyle company; an outlet for all forms of creative expression; a source of feminine empowerment; and expansion of an entrepreneurial spirit. With a passion for sharing her acquired social media skill set, Jackie is excited to join The Open Trunk Styled Shoot Workshop presenters to teach us how to make styled shoots really work for our following and for our brands!
