Collection: Porthole Collection

Life of the true north, captured in silver and gold. 

Compassion for our wilderness is at the core of my designs, a feeling of understanding and wanting to protect what we love. It is an easier conversation to have, separating humans and environment. Urban vs wild. But I think the more interesting one is of human connection to coastal wilderness. Here in BC we are wedged between the mountains and the sea. We are not so far removed. There is no distinct line. Our history is entwined with this coastline and our livelihoods depend on our natural resources. We are part of the story. This collection celebrates that story. 

Each piece is one of a kind and cut by hand. I use a little saw to hand cut out each layer and element.

Every piece is made up of 3 silver disks that I punch out. From these I cut the mountains, trees and waves with my little saw and solder the layers together using traditional goldsmith techniques. This is gives the piece a really fantastic weight and depth.

The hammered markings around the edge of the piece are a compass rose in Morse Code. N, S, E and W. A little reminder to guide you home, to guide your heart.

All jump rings and chain components are soldered to ensure integrity of the piece. 

Each piece is finished with a black patina that I remove by hand, creating a shaded effect that adds a really interesting contrast and brings out the details.
