Sailorgirl Jewelry — Jewellery-Other
From the lecture halls of the University of Toronto to studying Spanish in a gypsy cave in Spain, Catherine is forever engaged in learning about the world. Thirteen years ago this burning desire to learn new skills became, literally, a burning passion as she began the study of flamework. Primarily self-taught, Catherine has taken workshops with many internationally recognized glass artists to further her glass education.
As she learned the art of flamework she also studied jewelry design privately and at Harbourfront Centre, enabling her to turn her beads into wearable art.
“Stories are narratives of our lives, shared pieces of our histories and our experiences. I’m inspired to use my glasswork to tell stories of faraway places, of the world around me. I want people to wear not a necklace, but a tale of my making”.
