So, have you signed up for my very sporadic newsletter yet? I really enjoy connecting this way, and I'm making plans to do so more frequently in the new year - to subscribe, head over to my blog at www.theladysmith.ca for creative life musings, cool jewellery processes, first dibs on new designs, the odd truly delicious recipe, occasional giveaways, pirate-level swearing, and cat photos. It's like my IG, but maybe better. Promise. <3

The 2020 #stupidanimalhybrids holiday cards were so popular I decided to create a greeting card series as well, which you can find here:

I am behind in the Giving Hearts project, but stay tuned, more are on their way!

...

I sincerely hope that you and yours are healthy and comfortable as we continue to navigate this wild world. Thank you x a million for continuing to visit Etsy, and for supporting handmade. Bluntly put, your choice to buy handmade helps us survive; there are hardly words to convey how much your support means to me.

My designs are my own, and I choose to create one of a kind work. Any textured or patterned elements of my work are hammered, etched or cold-cast from my own handmade moulds, by me, by hand, and as such are not easily reproduced. I do not stamp my work with commercially available stamps, nor do I use commercially made design elements other than sheet metal, wire, bezel wire, sterling silver precious metal clay, chain and clasps/findings. These decisions allow me to make designs that are unique and uniquely powerful, and as such, my designs may not be copied or reproduced in any manner without my explicit consent.

Thanks for visiting, and as always, thanks for shopping and supporting handmade!

About TheLadySmithCanada

On Etsy since 2009

* M I G H T & M E T T L E *

A life-long designer, I've discovered that working with metal is my ultimate...
I fell back into the arms of metalwork in 2006 after a long hiatus, and while daydreaming about wearing an utterly kickass crown to my otherwise simple, backyard wedding. I could not find the head-piece I wanted - I would have to make it! Thus, I was introduced to Art Clay silver and it was love at first firing - with my fine arts education grounded in printmaking, ceramics and sculpture, it was a perfect match. Art Clay and print-making techniques allowed me to reproduce my own designs the way I wanted, and offered up faithful and fine reproductions of natural materials and vintage textures. I was smitten. I still am.

I have since branched out and moved away from working with Art Clay, and I now forge and fabricate with sterling silver, semi-precious stones and mixed metals including copper, brass and gold into my jewelry palette. Much of my work is etched with my own hand-drawn designs; I make everything one-of-a-kind.

My inspiration are those brave spirits who have proved their might and their mettle in this life, and it is my honour to create adornments for them.
