Hi and Thank you for your interest !
I'm a professional gemstone jewelry designer and creator since 2002. Before falling in love with amazing gemstones, I was a Metallurgical Lab Technician at Boeing MadDonnell-Douglas Wing production plant in Toronto. At that time a lot production was moving to China, and so I was laid off. It happened to be the time when the biggest Art and Craft Show in North America was taking place - One of a Kind Christmas Art & Craft Show, with over 700 artists under one roof. I visited the show and after seeing jewelry with gemstones I was hooked. Started creating my own jewelry and the following year I got accepted into that show. I started to participate in all craft shows around Ontario and since 2006 till 2011 I was participating exclusively in all major Art Festivals in the Eastern US. I did all the best shows, the biggest and the most prestigious. Like Manayunk Art Festival in Philadelphia, Crafts on Columbus in New York(three weekends in the Spring and three weekends in the Fall), Crafts at Rhinebeck(NY state), Syracuse Art Festival, Naples Invitational(Naples, FL), Gasparila Art Festival in Tampa(FL)...and many many more. I also won a numerous awards in jewelry category over the years. On ArtFire I display mostly simplistic jewelry, charm jewelry, and some more sophisticated jewelry. More »
