Hi! I'm Sailorgirl. I am a Toronto based glass bead artist and jewelry designer.
From the lecture halls of the University of Toronto (psychology) to studying Spanish in a gypsy cave in Granada, Spain, I am forever engaged in learning about the world. Ten years ago this burning desire to learn new skills became, literally, a burning passion as I began the never ending study of flamework. Primarily self-taught, I have taken workshops with many internationally recognized glass artists to further my glass education.
As I learnt the ancient art of glass bead making I also studied jewelry design privately and at Harbourfront Centre, enabling me to turn my beads into wearable art.
For several months a year, I flee the cold and grey north and float around in the warm and colourful south on my little sailboat. I use this time to fill myself with sunshine and flowers. I soak up the sound of the waves and the bright light of the tropics. I listen to the stories of my fellow sailors, have grand adventures and commune with nature.
Stories are narratives of our lives, shared pieces of our histories and our experiences. I’m inspired to use my glasswork to tell stories of faraway places, of the world around me. I want people to wear not a necklace, but a tale of my making.
Using fire and magic I turn glass rods into one of a kind glass beads. With these unique beads, I then design and construct jewelry based on the stories I see in the world around me.
Sailorgirl Jewelry is made with my handmade lampwork glass beads and sterling silver.
