THE TOO-BUSY-TO-BLOW-DRY TOQUE
Prila founders Priya Judge and Laurie Kader dish on fine-jewelry design and discovering gems in their own backyard.
How did you two come together to start your Montreal-based custom-jewelry line?
"We met and instantly bonded on our discussions of design and our passion to create."
What made you choose made-to-order over mass production?
" Mass production is not unique. Our fine jewelry pieces speak for themselves, and we can create just about anything!"
How would you describe your design aesthetic?
"Our designs are artistic and glamourous. We focus mainly on this aspect when creating our pieces. We want our jewels to stand out and be exquisite."
What inspires you?
"Travels to Asia. There is something very special about centuries-old cultures, a lot of colours and shapes and old world charm…there is a lot of warmth and feeling."
