From Artist to Jewelry Designer

This shop came into being out of sheer frustration after scouring the internet and Etsy for many, many hours looking for beaded stretch bracelets for my Mother. Either they were just too expensive (and beautiful) or were affordable (for me) but, um, er, not as beautiful. So being in Toronto where bead supply shops abound, I took the plunge and bought everything I would need to get started. I made my Mom 15 bracelets (and counting) and one necklace and I haven't looked back since!

Being a professional artist for decades I know how to work with colour, texture, shapes and line. It affords me the ability to create beautiful colour combinations from a wide source of beads, findings, cord, chain, etc., to create highly unique and individual pieces of beautiful yet affordable jewelry that is easy to wear.

Forever dedicated to my Mother who gave her love without hesitation and who taught me, and continues to teach me, even in her illness, the art of a successful life and what love, compassion and gratitude are all about. From all that I have and all that I am, thank you, Mom. And a big thank you to all of you who buy and support your local professional artisans!

    Working as a professional artist for most of my life I have transferred those skills into jewelry-making and design. Using my abilities to merge colour and shape well I create pieces that are uniquely beautiful and comfortable to wear.
