Perfect patterned metal pendants and earring

  More samples of upcoming pieces when my collections start releasing.  These are patterned metal, made from bronze, copper and steel.  I wanted to show how fantastic the patterned pieces look together, when the shape is the same flowing curl.  I have shown off the earrings before - on their own and with a different pendant. The flowing shape reminds me of a wave or of a whale's back.  The first collections will all feature this shape, which I am calling Ocean Currents.   First release coming soon.  Want in?  Insiders shop first on any new collection release.

Bronze Earrings and rainy day

I am working hard in the studio during August so I can launch my first collection in September.  These bronze earrings are waiting for their finishing.   Because I am in the studio, I don't mind that it is raining today.  Plus we could use it to dampen the potential for forest fires, which thankfully we do not see many here on Vancouver Island.   Want to get in on the collection release party?  All insiders get to shop new collections first, before they open to the public.  Just sign up with your email.

Versatile copper enamel pendant

I am loving how the light changes the colour of this copper and enamel pendant.  Here it looks blue. And then see the blue green. And then with some beach treasures from Prince Edward Island, green, like the sea glass.   Which makes some sense, since enamel is glass fused to metal.  It is one of my favourite ways to add colour to metal.  Want to know when my enamelled jewelry collection pieces are released?  Join other Insiders and be first to know.

Confessions of a slipper clad jewelry artist

  I confess!  I wear slippers in my studio.  Mostly because they are comfortable and keep my feet cozy.  And really, even though I am working hard on getting my collections out to you, very few of my tools are hazardous to my toes.   These are my favourite slippers, from Padraig Cottage.  And for my second confession - I have a pair I wear at my day job too!   Want to know when my collections are ready?  Type in your email and magically become an Elegantly Audacious Insider!  You will then be first to know...
