About

Strong, meaningful handmade jewellery

I have always loved making and wearing beautiful jewellery. After I had my two sons, I put away many of my beautiful pieces in fear that they would get broken by their small, curious hands. When I discovered the world of "mama metal" I felt like I had come home - meaningful, beautiful, tug-resistant pieces that small fingers love to fidget with but can't easily break.

I am drawn to simple, open shapes and their many combinations. My mama metal pieces are all lovingly created by myself - from fusing and shaping, to hardening and polishing. My gemstone and amber pieces are all created by me as well, and are designed to be as strong and durable as possible. I am branching out into other styles of jewellery, and love to experiment with rings, earrings, and bracelets as well.

I find inspiration first and foremost from my experience as a mother and partner - my sons and husband inspire and encourage me. My struggles and successes through pregnancy, nursing, babywearing, and parenting all underline much of what I do. Before having children my husband and I travelled extensively through Australia, New Zealand, India and Southeast Asia, and I find that I am starting to draw on those experiences more and more. The seeds of my boho/wanderlust-inspired pieces have been germinating inside me since those travels.

I am grateful to be able to share my creations with others around the world.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

• all necklaces come in a sweet bag ready for gifting
• if you'd like this shipped directly to a gift recipient, use their shipping address at checkout
• I do not include an invoice with orders, but if shipping outside of Canada I do need to put a customs declaration on the package
• I can include a small handwritten note at no extra charge; include that information in the "Notes to seller" text box at check out

Shipping

• default shipping option for all countries is untracked
• shipping upgrades are available at checkout within North America; this will allow you to track your shipment and usually it will arrive a few days faster.
• tracked shipping outside of North America is available but can be expensive; contact me for a quote
• ready to ship items will be mailed in 2-5 business days, while made to order items will be mailed in 1-3 weeks.
• locals use the code FREELOCALPICKUP to save on shipping costs and pick up from my house in Kitchener
• unfortunately due to trade agreements, I cannot ship items to Israel; orders requested shipped to Israel will be refunded and cancelled

How do I choose a chain?

• the mama metal formula is: total necklace length = chain + pendant width
• using a soft tape measure or string, measure around your neck to determine how long you'd like your necklace
• subtract the pendant width and you have your ideal chain length
• if you'd like to wear your pendant simply hanging off a chain, just figure out what length of chain you prefer - the "average" length for a necklace is 18" but it can vary so widely due to body shape/type and personal preference
• I offer both a "medium weight" chain or a "heavy weight" chain, which is a great choice for strong tuggers ;)
• I offer a double/convertible chain that allows you to wear it at three different lengths
• message me if you'd like some assistance figuring this all out
