Fatema's Profile

About

Hi! My name is Fatema, I am the designer and self taught maker of Silver Lily Jewelry a line of modern, classic jewelry featuring precious metals and gemstones infused with an Indian touch I am an Indian/Canadian born and raised in the big, crazy awesome city of Toronto, with a minor obsession with fashion and an addiction to dessert's.

As a child I enjoyed collecting pretty or unique beads, shells and baubles and making them into wearable jewelry. Silver Lily began when as an adult family and friends began noticing and requesting pieces.
My design process is still very similar to when I was a child beginning with beautiful gemstones from my treasured collection but instead of thread and fishing wire I now use precious metals and wire wrapping techniques to achieve the idea in my head! I am also learning metal smithing and am excited to show my pieces hopefully soon!…

Being allergic to most metals I work with sterling silver, recycled fine silver and 14k gold fill which I enjoy combining with colorful earthy genuine conflict free gemstones and rose cut diamonds from around the world. I hope to continue incorporating recycled metal in my pieces including 14k and 18k gold.

I like making a mix of statement and minimal pieces that can be worn on their own or mixed and matched depending on the wearers mood and style.
When designing I am inspired most by nature, fashion, pop culture, art, travel and especially my own collection of ornate traditional Indian jewelry given to me by my mother and loved ones.

I like to think my handmade gemstone jewelry and swarovski jewelry pieces can become a part of treasured collections evoking stories of love, laughter, friendship and achievement.

I now live and make my jewelry in the smaller quieter city of Halifax on the scenic East Coast of Canada with my husband and our 3 boys(never a dull moment) Apart from being a full time mom, professional video game/playtime negotiator, jewelry designer/maker I also work with immigrant women and children in my local community as a part time educator.
