Welcome to our press kit!

Home & Away map jewellery celebrates community, way-finding and wanderlust.  The range of ready-to-wear pendants are miniature graphic abstractions of roadways and natural features that characterize specific Canadian locations.  At 75 designs and growing, the collection encompasses neighbourhoods, rural routes, cities, provinces, and parks.  Crafted in sterling silver or 10 karat gold, every piece thoughtfully includes a corresponding paper map for easy gifting.

Home & Away was launched in 2019 by designer/goldsmith Shoshana Farber to acknowledge the ways in which locality informs our experiences and narratives - and as such, these subtle artworks often evoke conversation and personal reflection.

Shoshana Farber has spent almost two decades as a goldsmith, creating small-batch production lines and one-of-a-kind works under the name Showsh Designs. Her studios are intentionally low-tech and located in Toronto (Home) & Minden (Away), and her award-winning jewellery is sold at shows and in galleries nationwide. A believer in slow-made goods and artisanal processes, every piece of jewellery is fabricated individually by Shoshana herself.



I have been wearing the Bloor West necklace since I purchased it at One of a Kind (before the pandemic) and I absolutely love it. It's subtle so easy to wear every day. It's unique and has led to some cool conversations. And the quality is superb - no issues at all. I like how it lies flat and is quite comfortable, even to sleep in. Plus it's such a simple way to have something on you to remind you of home and community.

As we recognize a specific route commuting to work, or that route to our first date, or the pathway to home, wearing these symbols of places inspires us to remember and move forward.

Such beautiful quality... this is my third piece I have bought from Home & Away and it won’t be my last. My go to for presents. Highly recommend.
