We will meet for a two-hour experience at my private studio in the Plateau Mont Royal, the artistic heart of Montreal. You will have a unique experience in a creative atmosphere, where you will select the project that you will be working on. The price of the workshop is based on the surface and weight of material used per project, and on the complexity of the project. The two options provided are: (1) One pair of earrings. (see: https://www.alaskasilver.ca/pages/earring-selection-for-workshops ) OR (2) Two open rings. (see: https://www.alaskasilver.ca/pages/open-ring-selection-for-workshops ) Once the guests have chosen their project, the materials will be provided. A short safety briefing regarding the use of the tools and equipment will be given. The instructor will demonstrate the use of the equipment using practice metal. The guests will follow in order to familiarize themselves with the tools. The guests will then proceed with the silver and gold Keum-Boo sheet pieces, to cut, form, assemble, and finish their pieces. Packaging for your creation will be provided. At the end of this experience, you will take home, a souvenir made by your favourite artist: Yourself!
I studied as a bench jeweller for several years. I have earned a BSc and MSc in Gemmology & Applied Mineralogy from Kingston University, UK. In addition, I have a degree as a Graduate Gemologist (GG) from GIA. Currently, I spend my time creating custom pieces my home studio. My inspiration comes from the autumn and winter colours. The material mostly used in my jewellery is Keum-Boo silver (a mixture of fine silver and 24-karat gold from Canadian suppliers), and all the creations are made in-house without solder, in order to maintain metal purity.
