about

I have been designing and making jewellery since graduating from the George Brown College Jewellery Arts program.  Arcane Designs grew into a retail operation Arcane Metal and Stone which draws on the idea that most precious metals and gems have many special properties. My work is inspired by strong geometric forms, architecture, and my travels.  I often try to add an unexpected element.

I personally design and craft most pieces by hand, constantly exploring new themes and techniques. Using predominantly sterling silver, palladium and palladium white gold—and incorporating sometimes hard to find gemstone beads and coloured gems--I’m always striving to create designs that combine dramatic scale with fine detail. 

Those who own one of my works know that they are wearing a one-of-a-kind piece that will outlast trends and give a lifetime of pleasure. 

 

Statement pieces with subtlety.
