Hello my name is Valerie.
Making jewellery has been my hobby ever since I was a little girl. At 7 years of age I made my first soldered copper band in Metal Art School back home in Latvia. Ever since then, my love and passion for making jewellery began.

In 2007 I completed 3 years of Jewellery Arts Program with Honours at George Brown City College.
For some time I worked as a Goldsmith and a sales representative for other jewellery businesses.

Then I worked from home in my tiny studio where I let my creativity run wild.

Today, my studio is located in Downtown Toronto where clients can come by and work with me in person!
We discuss design ideas and custom projects as well as jewellery repairs.

If you would like to discuss an idea or project you have in mind, you are welcome to do so! Please note, for security reasons, it would be best to make an appointment with me by calling the number below:
647-848-0989

I will be happy to provide you with my address and arrange a meeting!

I look forward to seeing you!!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read a little bit about me. I look forward to working with you!
