I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Westboro Village to be exact, and I have always loved pursuing my artistic side in my spare time. I work full time and my husband and I love to travel. My first experience with glass was during a trip to Murano, Italy. Watching these amazing artisans create pieces in glass and seeing the beautiful jewelry on display that incorporated their work struck a chord with me. Shortly after that trip, in 2012 I started my journey in jewelry design. I've always been known as a bit of a magpie. I love shiny, sparkly things and I love jewelry so it seemed like the perfect fit. Before long I was looking for some way to make my pieces more unique. While visiting a local bead supply store I happened upon a lampwork studio. After watching a demonstration, I signed up for a series of introductory classes with an incredible teacher and mentor, Grace Edwards. In 2018 I set up a home studio where my creative fancies take flight. I continue designing necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants and have the added dimension of incorporating my own unique lampwork elements into my creations. I also enjoy working with wire and many of my pieces include hand-wrapped wire designs, heads pins and chain links. I have designed bridal sets, incorporating special touches such as the initials of the bride, groom and attendants into the pieces. I have taken neglected, cast-off pieces of jewelry and made them into something new and exciting to wear. I hope that you enjoy viewing my creations.
