Where does a Vancouver Jewelry Designer find inspiration?
I love being a Vancouver Jewelry designer but I also love hiking and getting outdoors. I find most of my inspirations on my many walks around Vancouver and Whistler. Because of this I take the time to look at all the pretty leaves and twigs that most people might walk over and step on. As a result makes it hard for my family sometimes to go out for a quick walk as I will often lag behind as I stuff my pockets full of specimens.
Where do I create my designs?
Well I am a Vancouver jewelry designer so I create most of my design out of my home studio in Vancouver, BC. I am lucky that I have a career that allows me to focus on my work during the day and then be able to pick up my kids from school in the afternoon. Having a family work life balance was very important to me. We also have a home in Whistler BC and when we are relaxing and enjoying our time up there I often find myself full of new inspiration and will sketch out or find my new design creations.
What do you use to make your jewelry creations?
Over the years I have experimented with different forms of jewelry making. Most methods i tried were very restrictive, so I was very excited when I discovered precious metal clay. Precious metal clay allows me to mold and sculpt any shape and creates a 99.99% pure fine silver finished product or sterling silver depending on the type of clay I choose. Because I love the outdoors and PMC is made with recycled silver, it makes for the perfect pairing. As a result I get to help the environment that I so love while being a Vancouver jewelry designer.
Where can you purchase my designs?
As a Vancouver Jewelry Designer it’s nice to keep my designs in local boutiques that support local talent. My designs can be found in Vancouver at Two of Hearts Boutique. Two of Hearts Boutique . I also try to do a few local markets, this year I am participating in the PortoBello West Fall market. You can also purchase my designs online here on my website.
I love designing jewelry and being a Vancouver Jewelry Designer. Being surrounded by the mountains, ocean and gorgeous scenery certainly helps in my creative process. Being able to have a job that I truly enjoy and find passion in makes me feel very lucky. I hope you enjoy my creations and if you have any questions feel free to send me a message.
