As an artist, I’m always striving to create art that brings a sense of connection to the viewer. I make jewellery that I want to wear. Each wood piece is carefully handmade using carefully selected reclaimed offcuts or old skateboards. I collect, clean, design, cut and finish each design in limited batched using various tools. Wood is such a beautiful medium to work with, often the colour, grain and natural marks will help shape the piece.
Everything from old floorboards to broken skateboard decks are recycled in her North Vancouver workshop. Each of her pieces is handmade using recycled and reclaimed hardwood rescued from various North Vancouver woodworkers and factories. The wood is carefully shaped, sanded and finished without the use of lasers, stains or toxic chemicals, and finished with sterling silver accenting (unless otherwise stated). Now designs can be found in various stores and galleries across Canada and online.
