Each piece is individually handcrafted. When I begin to translate my inspiration into metal, I work very intuitively, allowing space for serendipity.

Sustainability

Environmental sustainability and ethical sourcing are priorities. My suppliers are committed to ethical sourcing, and strong environmental and labor practices. Most of the precious metals I use are recycled, and all diamonds are Canadian-mined.

MOONPEARL SERIES

For the necklaces in the MoonPearl series, I took the idea of the ‘hand of the maker’, and combined it with the notion of a pearl’s home – the shell. On first glance, the individual sterling elements seem to be shells.  The close observer will discover, however, that these individually hand-fabricated elements are in fact each molded with my own hands, which is evident in them carrying fingerprints: proof of the hand of the maker.

One Footer Rings

A one foot length of sterling silver or 18k gold wire is first forged in various directions, much like life pushes and pulls us. The wire is then wound repeatedly into a continuous loop, wrapping around the finger many times without beginning or end. This design started as a drawing in brush and ink; the undulating line of the brushwork can still be detected in the translation into metal. Because each one is wrought by hand, the flow of wire finds its own way each time I create a new ring. Thus, every Onefooter ring is unique and different; no two are the same.

Artist Edition

Maple Leaf Dangle Earrings

The Maple Leaf Series, inspired by my Canadian citizenship, begins with taking imprints of real maple leaves around my house in Halifax. This imprint of fresh leaves is made in wax, then cast, and finally rolled up to build individually unique textures. There are only a few of these earrings, and when they are gone, there will be no more. More MapleLeaf Dangle Earrings >

Renew Your Old Rings

Do you have gold jewellery kicking around which, for one reason or another, you no longer wear?
Gold can most definitely be recycled, and made into something brand new.
 
I may also be able to use some, or all of your stones, in the creation of a new piece.
