Slow-made jewellery that's meant to last

I’ve been making jewellery since I was a teenager. I started out making wire and beaded jewellery, and sold at craft fairs and boutiques for years.

I have formal training as a jeweller, as I completed a two-year Jewellery Art & Design program at Vancouver Community College right when I finished high school.

I wound up taking another route with my career, and worked in academic administration and records management-related roles. All the while, I spent all my extra money on silversmithing tools and unusual gemstones.

I missed silversmithing, so I recently took jewellery courses at the Alberta University of the Arts to refresh my skills. I'm a perfectionist, so many pieces that I've made didn't make the cut to be here on Etsy! Now that I have enough practice and I’m happy with the quality of my work, I’m ready to offer it for sale.

Frequently asked questions

Will I need to pay customs fees?

If you are located in Canada, no.

If you are located in the USA, no.

I am located in Canada, but I use a shipping service that ships orders using USPS. Orders are driven across the US border and then mailed using USPS. I am able to mail items up to a value of $800 CDN value without incurring any customs fees.

***If you are located outside of Canada or the USA, you may have to pay customs fees.

Who are your shipping providers?

For within Canada, I primarily use Canada Post (via a mailing service called Chit Chats). Tracking is included.

For shipping to the USA, I mail using USPS (via a mailing service called Chit Chats). Tracking is included.

For shipping internationally (outside of Canada or USA), I use either Ascendia International Priority Tracked OR USPS First-Class Package International Service (via a shipping service called Chit Chats). Both of these options include tracking.

*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I may ship using a different option depending on the country and current services available, but I will always ensure that the option I choose is sent by airmail and includes tracking.
