Winnipeg Maker Showcase: dconstruct
With so much extra time spent in front of the camera for conference calls and Zoom family reunions, now is a great time to add some standout jewelry to your collection.
This week’s Winnipeg Maker Showcase features dconstruct, an innovative maker turning recycled materials into architectural accessories.
Lisa Reico, owner of dconstruct, chatted with Tourism Winnipeg’s Sarah Robinson about how they turn would-be waste into wearable art.
"We work with a local company here in Winnipeg that we buy their off-cuts and scraps that would have been tossed away, and we re-purpose it and we turn it into jewellery,” says Reico.
In this episode, Lisa shares some of the most popular pieces: their statement ecoresin.
Though the store in The Forks Market may be temporarily closed, dconstruct has launched a virtual store showcasing its carefully curated collection, including everything from handmade plant pots from Portugal to designer cocktail coasters.
With a continuation of their 'Desperate Times/Desperate Measures' 30 per cent off sale, now is the perfect time to spruce up your wardrobe, while also supporting local.
