Shelli and I have been part of the One of a Kind family for 36 years. In 1978 we were newly married and flush with the excitement of endless possibilities. I was taking a year off after graduating from York University in the Faculty of Education, and was making flutes as a way to finance a year of world travel. Shelli had returned from years of remarkable adventure to every continent and was again making and selling her beautiful sterling silver jewellery, a career she began in 1974! Word got out about a new and exciting craft show with a vision of becoming the finest venue in the country for both emerging and experienced craftspeople to display their work.
Since its humble beginnings in the Queen Elizabeth and Automotive Buildings, we and a small group of artists are proud to have been there from the start, helping to make the One of a Kind a truly spectacular showcase of Canadian creativity.
It has been a great deal of fun and extremely gratifying to have supported ourselves as artists all of these years, even as we feel the aches and pains that come with being young at heart grandparents.
In 1978 there was no such thing as the internet, let alone online shopping, so it is with pleasure and excitement that we embark on the One of a Kind Online adventure. Online you will find our latest work in sterling silver and gold, alongside many of our classic award winning designs. There are Celtic inspired rings and earrings, showcasing Shelli’s finely cut and detailed saw piercing. Nature finds expression in the multitude of flowing lines, flowers and creatures that adorn much of our work. Beautifully set fine gemstones add colour and depth to our rings, bracelets, brooches and earrings.
Shelli and I have passion for the work that we do in our wonderful studio in Hamilton. The attention to inspired design, craftsmanship, comfort and fine finishing are the hallmark of each piece that we create.
We also welcome custom commissions, whether it is setting your favourite gemstone into any piece that you see on our display or working together to make your vision of something special become a reality.
To both the thousands of loyal friends and customers we have seen over the years, and to those of you who are new to us, we welcome you to Delicate Touch and One of a Kind Online.
All our best, Mark and Shelli
