RAW AND REFINED NATURAL JEWELRY
One of a kind handmade jewelry, using ethically sourced shed deer antler, cattle bone and semi-precious stones. Featuring 14 Karat gold-filled and sterling silver findings and details.
I take a great deal of inspiration from my surroundings; Nova Scotia has such stunning natural beauty, bursting with vibrant coastline and lush forests. I also love the look of natural raw materials and rich metals mixed together - that balance is really what I strive for in my designs. I want to make women feel beautiful and one of a kind, whether it’s minimal with a simple piece of jewelry or over the top with multiple layered pieces.
Born and raised near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia I started designing and crafting jewelry as a child. I’m self-taught although was lucky to have talented mentors along the way. Born a ‘maker’ I’ve never been satisfied with anything ‘mainstream’, therefore designing my own jewelry collection was a natural choice.
I am involved in my creative process from start to finish. I start by finding or sourcing my materials from nearby forested areas and Canadian suppliers. Depending on the season, Spring/Summer, Fall/Winter, I usually have a few ideas in mind of what kind of materials I’ll want. Sometimes the shed deer antler or bone has a natural shape that lends itself to a certain design so I'll start there with my process. I'll then cut the antler or bone down to a manageable size before I begin refining its shape with a band-saw and sander. I do all my finish work in my home studio by hand with love and care.
