Lori began creating handcrafted unique jewellery made from semi precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver wire after looking for an artistic medium for her creative ideas. Lori tried mixed media, ceramics and acrylic painting before discovering jewellery making. Her keen sense of colour and fashion made this a natural.
Lori's creative passion has enabled her to develop a solid reputation for innovation in design. She turns her creative ideas into wearable art. Each piece is inspired through the stones themselves. Lori has been heard to say 'While holding the semi-precious gems in my hands, they 'speak' to me and the design is set'.
Steve grew up in an artisan environment. His father, at one point in his life, was a professional starving artist. Like his father, Steve showed an interest in painting, woodworking and photography. Whether it was painting a mural on his bedroom wall, building an end table for their living room or finishing their basement.
Steve demonstrated his ability to work with his hands. His creativity and 'a good eye for beauty' can be seen in his many photographs hanging on the walls of their home. He also has a flare for turning wire and metal clay into sensational unique pieces of jewellery.
