Full Brand Story

Rare Olive is owned and operated by Canadian maker, Nicole Gagnon, who creates wooden jewelry and accessories out of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Creator Nicole’s passion for wood stemmed from an admiration of her grandfather’s carpentry skills as well as from working with her husband, another talented wood worker. These combined experiences have led her toward the knowledge she now has of different woods and grains. Since the woodworking and fashion industries are not commonly seen together—Rare Olive creations are truly rare and unique.
