About Mikki

I began my jewelry-making journey in 2009 learning the basics of wire work and chain maille, but always striving to acquire new techniques through books and online videos.  After taking one silversmithing course a number of years ago, I knew I had finally found my creative direction and the endless possibilities of working with silver and torch.  At the same time, I learned the art of lapidary where my love of natural gemstones and rocks became an obsession and the primary focus of my jewelry designs.

 

I was recently told that my work “is very unique and could become an heirloom that a mother or daughter would want to pass on to future generations”.  That statement was an extraordinary compliment and reaffirmed by initial desire to create one of a kind jewelry that is eye-catching, long-lasting and appeals to women of all ages, as wearable art.

 

When I’m not working in my home studio in Harrowsmith, ON or showcasing my jewelry at juried artisan shows, I volunteer with the Kingston Lapidary & Mineral Club teaching the basics of lapidary along with silversmithing and chain maille courses at the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning in Kingston, ON.
