My jewellery is carried by several prestigious Nova Scotia galleries. I am honoured to have my work represented in these beautiful galleries alongside such talented artisans.
The Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design has a gorgeous Cape Breton artisan Gallery & Shop in Downtown Sydney, full of amazing, unique gift opportunities (for you or someone special!)
CBCCD is open year-round, Mon-Sat.

My work is also featured on the CBCCD's Artisan Trail Map, with a circulation of over 100,000.
Arts North is the only Cape Breton Artisans-only gallery on the Cabot Trail at the top of the island. This trail is consistently named one of the most beautiful in the world. Arts North is open from June to October each year.

This past year has seen a revamp to the 2nd Floor Smart Shop Place. Instead of traditional retail, it's now a haven for local artisans to have their own dedicated sales space. With one central cash, shopping is easy for artisans and shoppers alike.
Artisans in the Attic is open 52 weeks a year.

The physical galleries I produce for are usually graced with most of my production pieces. However, a few exclusive pieces are periodically available at my Etsy shop.
Hint: due to the production season, Winter is the best time to find new pieces online!
As a juried member of the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design, I exhibit my work each year at their exclusive arts and craft show. Traditionally, that has been named Christmas at Victoria Park, but both the venue and the format have changed into the Christmas Loft. CBCCD has decided to make use of the beautiful space they have available in their new building.
Go Behind the Scenes to get a look at photos of jewellery in development, sneak previews of experimental designs, have a peek into my studio, take photo tours of my beachcombing trips, and get updates about shows I'll be participating in each year.
