Introducing Flow Rings made from 100% Fairmined ECO Gold
In the past year, I took the big step to become one of only 6 goldsmiths in all of North America who is Fairtrade licensed, and one of 11 Canadian jewellers using gold which is Fairmined.
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 or ethically sourced, and all diamonds are Canadian-mined.

One Footer Rings
A one foot length of 18k gold or sterling silver 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.
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.
