Though I have jewelry making in my blood - great-grandfather owned a
store in Montreal (Griffiths & Son’s Jewelry) - I have only recently
turned my creativity towards jewelry. I love the freedom of
expression that jewelry making allows me and the benefits I receive
from sitting down to make a piece - relaxing and a time to meditate.
I work with a variety of mixed media, though my passion is knotwork.
My inspiration comes from everything around me. I tend to work “on
the go” without any sense of direction except my intuition guiding

I have a lapidary shop that I cut my own semiprecious type gemstone
cabochons from a variety of minerals.
Just recently I have started to learn how to silver solder bezel
type settings so that I might be able to begin creating jewelry like
so many of the designers who purchase stones from me.
Pretty active online. I have a blog, gemstone store, Squidoo lenses,
a a lapidary / gemstone community forum where I share and learn from
many others who share my same interests. some social networking
which I am not very good at. I also participate on a few online
business related and site develop ment forums that help me build my
own sites and online presence.
Lots more to tell, but maybe this covers interests as related to
