Jewellery making is a delicate balance between art and engineering. Using traditional goldsmithing and contemporary CAD, Shirley creates jewellery that will often tell a story. Stories of love, unrequited love and renewal are rendered in precious metals, natural gemstones, pearls and found objects.
Inspired by beautiful organic forms, Shirley merges the visceral colours found in natures gemstones and pearls, with precious metals. Objects made by hand, for the heart.
Every gemstone and pearl used is hand selected for its beauty and character. All precious metals are recycled; and gemstones and pearls are responsibly sourced. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted in her Toronto studio.
