About

Wear beautiful hand made jewellery everyday!

It all started by accident in 2002 with some glass beads… or was it fate?!

I enjoy the thrill of a new design revealing itself to me, the patience required to create the piece and the satisfaction of holding a well made beauty at the end of the process!

I am a formally trained goldsmith and I am experienced in bead weaving, on and off loom; as well as wire-work, stringing, pearl knotting and chain maille, and metalsmithing. I am mostly self taught, but I have had the privilege to be taught by masters. I have my Jewellery Arts Diploma (goldsmithing) from George Brown College.

I am known for designs of modern temperament and eye for color. I enjoy using high quality materials ranging from gold or silver to pearls to glass beads. I also like to up-cycle jewellery parts (saving it from being in an ugly piece!) or repurposing found items.

I draw influence from many sources, such as nature, my flourishing perennial garden, poetry, animals, life and love. I am a west coast girl living in the heart of Canadian wine country. I like to laugh and I really don’t see why you can’t wear beautiful jewellery at all times. I also believe the definition of beauty is up to the individual.

I have been lucky enough to have two careers that I love (hint: this is the second one!). My first career was in the animal welfare/humane society field. Please take some time to help a homeless or abused animal at your local shelter. They can use your help. Please remember to spay or neuter your pet.

Hi! I am Valerie, the person behind Firepan Jewellery Designs. I design and make beaded jewellery, chain maille, and metal smithed pieces. I hope you enjoy my work. Most of the bead woven pieces are one of a kind, occasionally I get so excited about a design I want to make in a variety of colors for you to chose from. All of them are original designs. I enjoy using high quality materials and will try to describe each piece fully in it's listing. I am open to custom orders, but keep in mind I'm only one woman, so your order may take time (like fine wine).

I want you to love your new jewellery! If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me and return your order within five days of receipt in its original condition (unworn, undamaged). I will do my best to ensure your item is securely wrapped for shipping, but I can not control, and am not responsible for, any damage that may occur due to mishandling by the postal service.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each jewellery piece has been hand made with the utmost care and attention. With ordinary wear each piece should last for many years. As with any jewellery, chemicals, perfumes, chlorinated water, or other chemicals can cause damage to your piece. Use only a soft, slightly damp cloth to clean you piece. Most importantly...WEAR IT AND ENJOY IT!

My pieces are made in a smoke free studio. From time to time they are test driven by my youngest cat.
