Jeanie Schlegel Merrick's Profile
Hi! My name is Jeanie. I am a family/self taught artist and have been in business since 1992. When I started, I was making gothic and Victorian jewellery in the Toronto subculture scene, and over the years it evolved into alternative bridal, Renaissance, and insane fabulousness.
This is my full time job and life long passion. My family owned and operated a jeweler's and opticians store from 1847 - 1921 (photos of the shop can be seen on my facebook page). Eventually, the odds, ends and supplies were passed to me which I now share with you in each piece I create, along with whatever else I find that isn't nailed down, red hot or on fire.
My inspiration comes from all over the place - antique photographs, architecture, fabrics, nature, music, and art. I love custom work and thrill at the opportunity to work with a client to bring their own creative…
