True Love and Lots of Hard Work...
I believe that great things take time- and that our life stories, as they unfold, are beautiful!
Though I've worked hard to hone my skills as a designer and metalsmith, I feel privileged to be able to create work that will be well- loved and well-worn. Work, that will bear witness to and help shape your story. Every piece of Locusart heirloom jewellery in my shop is designed and hand-made by me from start to finish... I'm a one lady show!
Most recently, I have divided my focus in the studio between small collection work and wedding/engagement jewellery. It is an absolute honor to create work for weddings, and I so enjoy meeting new couples and creating the rings that will serve as reminders to them of their love for each other!
My process for designing and creating jewellery is very involved and rarely quick. Because many of my designs are created from local organics that I have sourced and prepared myself, timing and seasonal cycles are integral aspects of my studio. Mindfulness of every step in production- from conception of an idea to the finished product is absolutely essential.
Casting and fabrication are my go-to methods for creating work, but I maintain creative control and authenticity by creating all of my own original models and molds. This, I believe is what sets Locusart Jewellery apart from so many others. Attention to detail and artistic integrity are cornerstones of my work, and quite literally shape each piece that I make. When sourcing materials, I work only with Canadian and American manufacturers/suppliers who are reputable industry stakeholders and who have commitments on a greater level to both economic sustainability and ethical practices.
My name is Emily, I own and operate Locusart Jewellery in my studio near Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have earned a BFA degree from NSCAD University in Halifax, with a major in Jewellery Design & Metalsmithing and minors in both Drawing and Art History.
There is nothing I love more than creating beautiful, modern heriloom jewellery for wonderful clients :)
Process and integrity of materials are cornerstones of my work. Because of this, all of the organic materials used for my designs are sourced locally (and sustainably)- on Canada's east coast in Nova Scotia. My cast work is all created using recycled silver and gold alloys. Locusart Jewellery is never dipped or plated- and is exactly as described.
All gemstones used in my studio are sourced through well-recognized and fair industry suppliers. All diamonds are acquired in accordance with the Kimberely Process Act.
