The Story Behind The Story of Love
The Story of Love is owned and managed by Teresa Cook, a designer and artist who crafts and curates many of the unique items sold within the boutique. Teresa loves using garnet, turquoise, amethyst, and other stone varieties, as well as freshwater pearls, and breathtaking Swarovski crystals in her creations.
Raised in England, Teresa was greatly influenced by her mum’s couturier talents in the fashion industry, and her nan’s jewellery box treasures. Teresa fondly recalls playing dress-up with jewels and dreaming of one day having a shop to display her own gems. A fan of Coco Chanel’s chic and timeless charm, Teresa credits the revolutionary designer as a source of inspiration - especially when it comes to pearl designs!
Teresa’s jewellery has appeared on TV and been worn on red carpets by celebrities, hosts, and Olympians. Teresa’s designs have also been showcased in leading retailer Holt Renfrew and can be found in boutiques across Canada and the USA.
With The Story of Love, Teresa’s focus has always been to provide a unique boutique experience that delivers the best customer service to her new and long time clients. With intuition into the style of her clients, and a deep understanding for pattern, colour, and design, Teresa crafts timeless custom pieces that make the wearers feel extraordinarily beautiful.
