I recently participated in the annual Britannia Christmas Craft Fair in Vancouver. This is a small display of some of my jewelry.

This necklace and earring set is fashioned from hammered sterling silver which I have allowed to tarnish somewhat. Its funky. I think I would wear it with a nice sweater to allow the focal to stand out.

This necklace recently sold at Little Mountain Gallery in Vancouver. The Strauss crystal spike is strung on a sterling silver chain. I hand formed the bezel from 20g sterling silver with sterling spacers.

Rose quartz is such a lovely semi-precious stone. Metaphysically, it is said to calm the soul. The cross is strung on a sterling silver chain. The earrings are sterling silver with sterling spacers.

A gaggle of chainmaille bracelets. These chains are made from anodized aluminum in several different colours. Aluminum is such a light weight metal that you barely notice you are wearing it. I love that I can get so many different colours of this metal. They look great in combined colours as well.

These are 2 beautiful bracelets made from Strauss crystal connected by silver plated rings. They are classy enough for evening wear but would look great with jeans too!

This is a lovely necklace strung with clear purple glass beads and amethyst spacers. It would look great with evening wear or a casual outfit.

This displays a necklace and a bracelet I made using some blue lampwork beads that I made. The necklace is a chain I made using bright aluminum and some heart shaped findings. I also strung some small glass beads to add a bit of colour. The bracelet has two of my glass beads strung with some silver plated spacers and smaller glass beads.

3 bronze chainmaille bracelets. I love working with bronze. It is a strong metal and produces a very strong chain so that soldering is not necessary. Bronze goes very well with stainless steel as demonstrated in the centre chain. The larger linked chains are wonderful as a man's chain.

Not the best pic. These are two of my handmade lampwork beads strung on black satin cord. They look great over a big, bulky sweater!

This is my handsome General Chin. He is a purebred Japanese Chin. You'll never meet a more laid back, happy-go-lucky little pooch. I absolutely adore him.

This is my lovely Roxy. She is a Pomeranian/Pug cross and has been a wonderful addition to our family for 3 years now.
