Hello and welcome to my online Double Dragon Jewelry Shop!!
I am so glad you took a moment to stop by to find out more about me, and about Double Dragon Jewelry, one of my passions in life.
As you are here on my website, you must love beautiful Sterling Silver Jewelry. And as you can see, so do I~so allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Cindy and for 20 years of my life, I operated my own retail business selling Antiques and Collectables.
Along side with the Antiques and Collectable furniture, my inventory included large showcases of beautiful Vintage Jewelry from the 1920-50’s.
I met customers from around the world, and when the tourists arrived each summer they would literately wipe out my showcases full of Jewelry. That was in 1985-1993. At that time I had two shops, both in the middle of beautiful downtown Victoria, B.C. each just a few blocks away.
These customers would leave my shop and head to my other. I would call my brother Allen who was my partner at the time to say our customers were on their way. What a rush and exciting time that was. In 1996 I moved out to Langford, just 20 minutes from downtown, where I was asked to manage the Jacklin Road Trading Post, which was known at the time as Victoria’s biggest Antique Mall.
My shop was on the top level with a variety of smaller shops in the lower level. It was a great 20 years all in all, but after one very major surgery I decided it was time to retire.
It wasn’t too long after, when my good friend Brenda asked me to join her in selling Sterling Silver Jewelry. I needed to do something to keep me busy and this offer came around at the perfect time. I had great knowledge in the business world, along with many connections, and with Brenda, well between the two of us, we knew lot’s of people.
It was my brother Allen (my past business partner) who introduced us to Sterling Silver Jewelry from Bali. He had just started his own importing company and asked us if we would like to see the Jewelry he had brought back with him on his last trip?
Well, we were sold!! Balinese Sterling Silver Jewelry was so well made. Each piece had spectacular gemstones and the silver-work was very intricately designed.
That was when we decided to focus on Jewelry from different Countries.
It took us a few years, but once we found what we liked, and felt were very reliable sources, we formed close friendships with each one of our Importers and Designers. All together 9 Countries where chosen. You can view them and the chosen Jewels here: Bali, Canada, Chile, India, Israel, Mexico, Nepal, Poland and Thailand.
At least a couple of times a year we hand pick what we feel are some of the more unique and beautiful pieces. Jewelry we knew our customers would love.
Selling Sterling Silver Jewelry became our passion and all our friends loved the Jewelry that we brought home for them.
Double Dragon Jewelry Ltd was founded in 2008.
Together we showcased our Jewels through Home Parties and Fund Raising Shows, selling countless pieces of Jewelry to many happy customers.
We decided to take the next step and go global in September 2010.
December 2011, Brenda and I decided to part ways. We are still BFF’s, but she pursued other interest and I continued on this fun and exciting journey by myself.
That was when my wonderful husband Myles, who supports me in everything I do, gave up part of his workshop and turned it into a beautiful Cottage Studio. This allowed me to continue showcasing my Jewels to my friends and customers. When I walk through those doors, it is like a dream,~after all a room full of Jewelry~what girl wouldn’t love that!!
And when the sun spills through those windows and skylight the Jewelry sparkles beautifully as if bringing each piece to life. And that is truly glorious………………………….
Earlier I mentioned a major surgery~well in my life I have had many. I was born with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. All of my life The Arthritis Society has been there for me during my most painful years helping me with physio and pain management. Now that I am older, I wanted to “give back” so I contacted The Arthritis Society of Canada, and a plan came together.

This Jewelry business keeps me alive and focused everyday. It truly is my passion and I am very proud of each piece of Sterling Silver Jewelry I showcase here on my website. I absolutely love working both at home and online and interacting with customers all over the world.
Through the past years I have spread my knowledge of Sterling Silver Jewelry through many Social Networks.
I hope you join me on the following Social Media platforms as you will see everyday listings, pictures, and updates to Double Dragon Jewelry Ltd that you may not find on this website.
And if you do stop by, make sure you say Hello!!
Each day when I awake, I begin my day with a grateful heart.
I hope life brings you much Happiness, good Health, and lot’s of Laughter.
