Lindsay and I have started a silver goods line called "Broken English"
Including a few pieces in bronze and a few in the future in gold, it's a little side project of ours to keep our minds stimulated. To the right there's a link to the new site, however at the moment there's no photos of the pieces as it's such a busy time of year for the both of us.
Those in Vancouver will be able to meet with us in person this Friday and Saturday (December 5th and 6th) at the Western Front's annual "Toque Christmas Sale".

It'll be the first time any piece from this line will be available to buy.
With the majority of pieces geared to the ladies, there's a limited number of designs at this time as we're still feeling out the response of the public. Presently an assortment of necklaces and braceletes, they will be accompanied by a couple of men's necklaces with a plan to expand to an exclusive men's line for early next year.
Come pick up some nice holiday gifts from the group of other talented vendors, and pop by and say hello. We'd love to see you.

handmade through and through...something old something new

A client met with me at the airport earlier this year wanting to present their daughter with a gift for her wedding day. She handed me a small parcel of her grandmother's diamonds, wanting her daughter to walk down the aisle with the memory of her in spirit. After the short visit they were in the air off again on their way home from a business trip.
A little while later, we transformed this collection of stones into a new timeles heirloom which is to be passed down to the next generation being started with the new couple.

These diamond encrusted earrings (shown in three views) are entirely hand fabricated at the bench. Using 19k white gold and platinum plate and wire, everything down to the spring lever backs is handmade. With this added attention to detail, it really makes a difference to a piece you are already spending hard earned money on that you wish to keep and pass down in the family. I think they're nice!
