From Sculpting to Jewellery-Making

I've been pursuing creative endeavors in one form or another since an early age. Interests in drawing, painting and sculpting have helped me to develop a passion for working in 3 dimensions and a desire to explore materials that lend themselves to creating volume like clays and metals. In 2003, I developed a series of small figurines which proved to be popular with collectors. After having some of my pieces appear in Larbooks' 400 Polymer Clay Designs (2004) and winning first place in sculpting at the LaCloche juried art show (Whitefish Falls, Ontario) in 2006, I realized I would one day make my work full-time. My love of working in a small scale lead me to experiment with precious metal clay, and eventually sterling silver. In 2011, after taking many evening classes in this area and attending the Ecole de Joaillerie de Montréal, I left a career in IT and became a full-time student of the Jewellery Arts program at George Brown College. Having recently graduated, I am currently an artist-in-residence at the college and developing my personal work.

My technical focus utilizes a process driven design element consisting of fused wire and gemstones. I also enjoy making one of a kind pieces in the form of wearable containers. The process allows me to explore the idea of creating vessels for both tangible and intangible items. Finally, I spend time developing and creating production jewellery, digitally or hand-fabricated like my flower necklaces, rings and earrings and my 3d printed vase necklaces.

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    My love of working in 3 dimensions and on a small scale lead me to working in metal. I gravitate towards making organic and nature inspired pieces out of silver, gold and gemstones but also enjoy designing and modeling items for 3D printing.

Production partners

  • Local Casting House

    Toronto, ON

    I have a great casting house I use. It is a small family business owned by a nice couple who works very hard and do great work. Once I'm happy with a master model, I bring it in to them and he cuts a mold of it, then does the casting.

  • 3D Printer

    NY, United States

    They have great materials and customer service. They do a lot of problem solving before the files even go to the printer.
