About

Welcome to Le Chien Noir Jewelry! I put my jewelry aside for decades, to make a living as a writer and editor. I had studied jewelry-making/goldsmithing in Paris and Quebec and, by a twist of fate, ended up writing instead.

A few years ago, I finally unpacked my box of tools and silver, set up a corner in my home office, picked up my torch and got back at it. And I haven't looked back! I can work on my jewelry all day and all night - the days are never long enough. That corner eventually took over my office and now has migrated to my farmhouse basement.

I love the process of working with silver and gemstones and the abundance of stunning stones out there never ceases to inspire me. I hope that my work conveys some of this and will inspire you as well! It also allows me to practice photography - another great passion of mine…

Taking closeups is quite different from taking portraits, so it's a work in progress!

The name of my shop comes from our old dog, Jessie, pictured here, who was a wonderful border collie-lab. He spent many hours sleeping under my desk in my office/studio, so I always think of him when I'm working....
