Featured Artsist: Chili Thom

House of Alaia Tofino is proud to feature the amazing work by Whistler artist Chili Thom for the month of June.  Being born and raised in British Columbia, Chili has spent years exploring the wilderness and the beautiful natural landscapes of BC where he seeks most of his inspiration from.  Working mainly with acrylic paints, Chili's work has a distinct flare to it accomplished by using linear brush strokes, unique perspectives and saturated colours.  When viewing Chili's work, the beautiful colours, three dimensional shapes and natural elements evoke a feeling of actually being "there".
See more of Chili's work at or swing by the gallery at 461 Main Street, Tofino BC and check them out for yourself!

House of Alaia Tofino Project

Welcome! House of Alaia Jewelry and Christy Feaver Modern Metalwork are excited to share with you that we will be opening doors to a brand new flagship store and school of creative arts in Tofino, BC this June!  Christy Feaver, designer and co-owner of House of Alaia has spearheaded the project with the vision to create a space similar to the already established House of Alaia School of Creative Arts in Bali, Indonesia.  

The school will offer a wide variety of classes in jewelry making and art to people of all ages and skill levels backing the school's philosophy that "A lesson in art and culture is an eternal gift and shared happiness".  Catering to both visitors of Tofino and locals, the House of Alaia school will host artistic workshops and events that will contribute to the West coast culture and artistic character of the town of Tofino.   

The flagship store will be stocked with all the designs from Christy Feaver's personal contemporary jewelry collection Christy Feaver Modern Metalwork as well as House of Alaia Jewelry owned by Christy and co-owner and designer Nea Hildebolt.  Aiming to support the talents of local artisans, the House of Alaia will also be home to a gallery space that shelves the creations of local small business business's and designers.  Christy is currently seeking out artists that will contribute to the unique aesthetic of House of Alaia.  Interested applicants please email   

Whether a Tofino local or visiting for the weekend The House of Alaia will be a creative haven that will welcome people in to become inspired and reconnect them with the West coast. 

As we are excited to share this journey with you, please follow the House of Alaia Tofino blog for updates, pictures and events that will be taking place over the next few months.  For more information on House of Alaia and Christy Feaver Modern Metalwork jewelry visit our website at, and
