Scenic routes cause us to slow down and take in the beauty, quality and uniqueness of the journey. I strive to incorporate these same elements in all Scenic Route Jewellery. For me, creating is just as much about the journey as it is the finished product. From designing to production, polishing and shipping, I will take the necessary steps to create a beautiful one of a kind piece. Rest assured the journey, from the moment we first speak to the package arriving at your door, will be a scenic one.
In 2016 I graduated from a 10-month intensive jewellery program at Kootenay Studio Arts (KSA) in Nelson, British Columbia. My journey to Nelson started many years ago as a teenager creating hemp necklaces, wire-wrapped rings and pendants out of recycled materials. Years later I began following inspiring metalsmiths on social media and realized I had barely scratched the surface of jewellery design. Another two years later, I was newly married and finally on my way to Nelson to attend KSA in the heart of the mountains.Being immersed in my new craft with a group of like-minded creators and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Kootenay's was incredibly inspiring. Although short, I am grateful for the time I spent there, and if our journeys don’t cross paths again, I know Scenic Route Jewellery grew to what it is today because of my time in Nelson, BC.
Scenic Route Jewellery is comprised of limited production and one of a kind pieces that showcase the beauty of nature and inspire an adventurous life. All the jewellery is handcrafted by me using traditional goldsmith techniques and a variety of materials including: sterling silver, brass, gold and semi-precious stones.
