Originally, I went to the Ontario College of Art and Design to become a graphic designer but fell in love when I discovered the Jewellery Design program. It is so exciting to take beautiful, unique stones, a sheet of silver or piece of wire and, using fire and imagination, turn them into a beautiful, wearable piece of art! Even after over 20 years, it is never boring.
I love to experiment and believe that everyday jewellery should be just as unique and conversation starting as special occasion pieces. Now that I have relocated to beautiful Muskoka with my family, I am very excited to see where my inspiration will take my work in the future.
