One Island woman's journey....

I started my artistic journey at age six.
My wise mother was all about choices. I had the choice, she said, when I came home from school, I could either draw a picture or write a poem or a story.
Whether or not this was because she saw talent in me, or it was because she wished she had had this type of upbringing, I don't know.
Either way, it set me down a wonderful road, where I was allowed to nurture my budding artistic abilities.
It gave me the fearlessness to try many types of crazy art projects over the years.

25 years ago I discovered beads and fell deeply in love.
My Mom gave me her jewelry box to play with when I was a kid, much like parents give their children their phones these days....so this was my early inspiration.
Twenty-five years ago, there was mostly just glass beads on the market.
Then a few semi-precious stones started to come out in rounds and chips.
Slowly, more amazing stones started to appear, and, as I already adored rocks, my path seemed, to take this natural route.

Here's a bit more information on where I get my top quality supplies.
I try and choose the best of everything!

-I source semi-precious and precious gemstones from all over the world.
I have a few trusted suppliers and one place in Jaipur India that will cut custom stones for me, RNA Gems.
I love working with these amazing top quality stones!
I usually pair them with Sterling Silver or 14k Gold filled findings, hooks, and wire.

-My silver and gold I purchase here in Canada at Bamiyan in Toronto.

-I also work with brass stampings with various finishes. I currently use 8 finishes.
Copper Ox
Brass Ox
Rusty Iron
Silverware
Raw Brass
Matte Black
Vintage French
Classic Gold

***Plus 4 new nickel free designer pewter finishes, supplied by B'sue and made by the 1928 Jewlery company.
Gingerbread
Old Silver
Rusted Iron
22kt gold finish

-I purchase this plated brass from the best plater in the business.
They are made in The U.S. and purchased through B'Sue.
They have an amazing array of supplies that I use.
They carry the best of the best.

-I also source products from Beads on Broad, Bamboo and Bling and Skanda.
They are three amazing shops here in the city.

As you can guess, I am very particular about my supplies, and I want to design and create special and completely original pieces of quality jewelry for you.


A heartfelt thank you to my suppliers whose products inspire me.

I work from my Studio at home, with my dog, Sunny as my assistant.
He always has an opinion about everything, if I can get them him off his phone...

I live on an island paradise on Canada's west coast.
I am surrounded by the ocean, beaches, and forests.
This environment is reflected in my color palette.
I choose lots of blues and greens and greys, and I cannot resist purchasing blue-green gemstones to create pieces with.

I look forward to many years of creating ahead.
I love to make all types of jewelry. Necklaces, Earrings, Bracelets, Rings, Brooches, and sets.

I am currently working on a line of pearl and gemstone bangles.
I think they're amazing and offer a fresh exciting new style. You can collect them and wear an armful, or buy them in singles to add color to your current stack of bangles.
If this is something that speaks to you, email or convo me with your interest and color requests.
I'm always very pleased to do custom work for you.
All my pieces are originals.

If you have a special occasion coming up like a grad, wedding, or special event, or if you adore a certain type of gemstone, that you don't see here, I can work with you to create something special.
Also, if you have a stone, bead or pendant kicking around that you wish you could wear, I can make you something you'll really enjoy.
Just hit the Ask a Question button or email, and we can get a dialog started!

Thank you for visiting my studio!

    1928 Jewelry company has made a proprietary line of pewter. It's called 1928 for B'Sue. It comes in Old Silver, Gingerbread and Rusty Iron finishes. It is gorgeous! I like to buy most of my metals from B'Sue. They have the best platers in the biz. There's nothing else like B'Sue!
