Karen Hunter Jewellery

All of the jewellery is handmade by Karen at her home studio and workshop, and each piece is hand cut and formed. She also makes her own Niobium and Silver links. After all of the work is done to each piece of Niobium, it is anodized to create the colour.
The Niobium colours include: green, turquoise, blue, purple, fuchsia, pink, peachy pink, yellow, navy, dark purple and brown. Karen uses Niobium ear wires on dangling earrings and Titanium posts and butterflies, because of their hypoallergenic quality. The patterns on the metals are created with hammer marks and Roller Printing (putting the metal through a rolling mill against; paper, linen or other metal that has a texture, which transfers to the finished piece).

Visions of Vanstein

I started experimenting with metals about seven years ago. I melted down some aluminum and was fascinated with what the end result was. From there i made abstract wall pieces that were incredibly unique to all that viewed them. My interests started to wander and from there I went to another forms of upcycling. I started using wood and other “wood” products to create more unique abstract pieces.

Duncan MacDonald Plaques
Duncan MacDonald Plaques
Duncan’s work is homage to these deeply set roots in Britain’s Celtic past. Duncan continues to tell his history in his own distinctive voice. He carves his original work after researching the relevant history to the piece. This background to the work is included with each plaque. The original sculpture is then cast in cement fondue – a traditional process originating from 18th century France. Duncan continues to develop his Celtic stonework both at home on the Blue Mountain near Collingwood, Ontario, and on Islay.
