I'm a cello player, writer of music, jeweler, climber, traveler, dancer, photographer, stenciler/vandal, ex-bunhead, pseudo-philatelist and wannabe samurai... among a few other things.

I've been a rockhound/magpie for as long as I can remember, and started making jewelry when I was just a wee one. Music and dance took over my life for quite a long time, until I rediscovered my early passion while passing the time between tours... Jewelry making has since become a primary focus, and the source of many good times and burnt fingers.

My jewelry work revolves, for the most part, around sterling silver, gemstones, resin, concrete, rusted metals and found objects.

I believe in punk rock, mountains, oceans, Emma Goldman, Vladimir Tatlin, Hugo Pratt, Edward Abbey, Joe Strummer, Jim Jarmusch, John Lurie, Lewis H. Lapham, Hamid Drake, The Ex, Tom Cora, Kurt Vonnegut, things bowed and strung, metal, fire, the word 'metalsmithery', doing what you gotta do, and laughing so hard you get high...among a few other things.


I'm a member of the Metal Arts Guild of Canada:

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Refund and exchange requests are dealt with on a case by case basis, and in a timely fashion. I want you to be absolutely thrilled with your purchase and believe in the quality of my work. Please contact me within 7 days of receiving the item.

Custom orders are not refundable.
I currently accept payment through Paypal, a secure online payment system that accepts all major credit cards (even if you don't have a Paypal account).

Please make sure that your shipping address as entered in Etsy matches your address in PayPal.

Please pay immediately when using PayPal by clicking the 'Buy Now' button during checkout. Items cannot be created or shipped until payment is received.
Items ship within 3 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) from receipt of payment. Items purchased via Paypal eCheck are sent only after eCheck has cleared. Items that are made to order ship within 5 to 7 business days after receipt of payment. Custom orders may take a bit longer.

Shipping rates are based on the latest Canada Post quotes and the cost of packaging. This rate also includes Canada Post insurance.

Shipping within Canada is variable. The maximum it'll cost is $12 (yes, yes, I know it's kinda ridiculous but what can you do...welcome to the nonsense world of Canada Post). Anyhow. I list all pieces at $8 shipping within Canada. Should the actual cost of shipping be less than $8, (which, chances are, it will) I'll refund the balance directly to your Paypal account immediately after the package has shipped. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like me to figure out the exact amount (based on your postal code) prior to purchasing.

Please make sure that your shipping address as entered in Etsy matches your address in PayPal.
