About

Reconnect with Nature

Being outside in environments like forests has always instilled in me a sense of wonder and curiosity. Taking the time to observe its patterns, textures and shapes gives me a sense of rootedness that can be challenging to find in a busy city life. Being an artistic child and having an inclination for sculpting, it’s no surprise that my favourite subjects were always animals and fauna.

After a corporate career in IT, I started craving that quiet simplicity again. Going back to working with my hands has made me realize that individual natural objects can be like talismans and act as reminders for us to slow down. The connection we establish with them leaves a lasting impression that transfers to the relationships we have with people around us. They help us recognize what is important and gives us the confidence to put our best foot forward.

The wonders of nature is the inspiration for my pieces. The desire to keep nature’s mementos close at hand and capture that feeling is what drives me to instill that essence in to my pieces.

  • 3D printer

    NY, United States

    I design my files and create them on the computer. Because I don't have a 3D printer, I outsource this part of the process by sending the printer my files. They print my items and then send them back to me. If it's a pendant or earrings, I will then add findings.

  • Plating Services

    Toronto, ON

    People sometimes people ask me if they can have a piece gold plated instead of sterling silver. When this happens, I bring my piece to a local jeweller who in addition to making beautiful products, offers plating services.

  • Casting House

    Toronto, ON

    I use a local casting house to do most of my molds and my castings. In fact, it's so local I can walk there! Their customer service is great and even if things get very busy for them during peak seasons, they're always friendly and welcoming.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 31, 2019
Welcome to my shop! All of my jewellery is made from either sterling silver, fine silver, gold and my 3D printed pieces are created from alternative materials such as nylon. The materials are all specified in the listings. I've designed every piece in my store and usually mention the process in my listings but if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
