THE NOTEWORTHYS

Jewelust

How did you get started?

I have always been artistically inclined even as a child, and growing up with a mechanic for a father, I grew to be comfortable with tools. I worked in a jewellery store in high school and college, but I didn’t realize that I was on the wrong side of the anvil until I tried a jewellery class. It was love at first solder and I’ve never looked back!

Describe your design/creation process. 

I start with an idea and a lot of sketches. I am inspired by the way metal moves and the evolution of a design. Beginning with my “seed” sketch I begin to sculpt wax or form metal with hammers and forming tools. My designs are usually 3-dimensional, and as they take shape I see the possibilities present themselves. My design is not complete until I explore all of these options to find a composition that pleases me. Sometimes I make dozens of samples, changing small details to see how they affect the final form. This is called “process-driven design” and it requires a true passion!

I source recycled materials whenever possible, from my business cards and packaging to my silver and gold. I also have a couple of collections, the proceeds of which support charities that are important to me.

Who is your hero?  

I wouldn’t say that I have heroes, but there are a few people that I admire. One would be Britt Hopkins of Anice Jewellery in Toronto. She has 2 amazing stores, and a great energy, which she channels into an inspirational brand. The other is Paige Boersma of Bicyclette Boutique. Even though the store closed, I love how she turned her style into a beautiful store and brand. I had the pleasure of going to school/training programs with both of these women and it is inspiring to see how they turned their fabulous styles and energies into successful brands.
