Caveat on using the term “recycled gold”:

While I am very careful to source my precious metals only from SCS® certified suppliers, who are also members of the Responsible Jewellery Council, I want to point out that ‘recycling’ gold is not what is commonly understood by the term.

True recycling avoids things ending up in landfills. Gold, of course, wouldn’t.

Instead, gold is simply melted, refined and repurposed.

Although SCS certified refineries must maintain auditable records of their suppliers, there are loopholes globally which make it very easy for gold from irregulated and/or illegal sources to enter their supply chain.

This makes even certified recycled gold untraceable, or guaranteed free of human suffering.

Press, Publications, & Awards

My studies in jewellery design and metalsmithing at NSCAD University (BFA 2005) under governor-general-award-winning professors have given me the tools for design excellence.

In my 20 years of handcrafting jewellery, I have gained/won many accolades: awards, publications in books and magazines, and recognition by my peers – such as the designation of Master Artisan by Craft Nova Scotia.

Most recently, I was honoured to be chosen to represent Canada on a European trade mission with minister Rodriguez, where I signed important documents with a German firm in the presence of his excellency Stephane Dion, Canadian ambassador to Germany and special envoy to the European Union.

Several officials from Canada’s department of Arts, Culture and Heritage – including the director and Senior Business Development Officer of international trade – as well as the representatives from the Trade Commissioner at Embassy of Canada to Germany were in attendance to support the 21 Canadian companies represented.
