Holiday Open House

FB_IMG_1447962737963I hope you are stopping by the Heather Haynes Gallery in Kingston this weekend ( November 21 and 22) for their Holiday Open House.

Along with the most incredible art by Heather Heather Haynes and hip Jewellery by Whitney Haynes, I have created a bunch of little fingerprint pendants that will be on sale to benefit the Tchukudu women and children of the Congo. You can read about and follow here: Worlds Collide


Each little pendant is made from an actual fingerprint of one of the women in the Training School and 100% of the proceeds go to helping the Tchukudu women and children through Worlds Worlds Collide.

What a great weekend to see the new tree in Market Square and  do a little Christmas shopping!


And last but not least, The Tchukudu Women’s Training Center calendars are on sale for $20 at the gallery as well as through me in the upcoming weeks (p.s. I think I’m Miss January! lol!!).



In the mood

GroupThe holiday season is looming and the busiest time for a working metalsmith. These past few weeks have been filled with sawing, soldering, forging and guilding.

I was contemplating today, how lucky I am to be able to play out different moods with my work. Sometimes I like bright and modern, other times cool and minimalistic. This past week brought out the moody, mysterious work once again and how satisfying it was to revisit these elements that are rough and textured, yet refined with a delicious touch of decadent gold to bring out the light  from the shadows. How lucky am I?

All of this work and then some, is heading to Artina’s in Victoria and also Metalworks Metalworks Goldsmithing here in Kingston.
