Glen Watts – Recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal

December 20, 2012 | Filed under: Uncategorized

Happy news in the Spectator today. Glen Watts received one of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medals for his work with the Neighbor to Neigbor Centre which works with families in need. He has been a past board president. Glen is the owner of H. Williams Jewellery on James St. N. (as well as an Upper James Store). I was his guest along with visual artist Caillin Kowalcyzk, last Friday at the James St. N. Art Crawl. It was a lively and fun experience. I was amazed at the number of people who came to this event. The staff at H. Williams Jewellery was great to work with…they are very knowledgeable so if you are looking for a piece of fine jewellery for yourself or as a gift, this is the place to go. I have purchased all my fine jewellery here for years and still consider Glen’s store to have the best selection and the best prices.

James St. N. Art Crawl – Tomorrow Night

December 13, 2012 | Filed under: Uncategorized

I will be participating in the James St. N. Art Crawl tomorrow evening starting at 6 p.m. You will find me at 136 James St. N., at H. Williams Jewellery (you know, birds of a feather flock together) along with very talented visual artist Caillin Kowalczyk. I wiil have some new pieces to show you and of course there will be lots to see in the showcases around me if you are interested in fine jewellery. I personally think that Glen Watts, owner of H. Williams Jewellery, has the best prices in town and of course a wonderful selection.
This is a first for me, so I am a bit anxious but the staff at H.Williams are very friendly and I am sure that all will be well.

I have attended Art Crawl on many an occasion but this time I am really in the thick of things.
See you there.

Emerald Green – Pantone Colour of the Year – 2013

December 9, 2012 | Filed under: Uncategorized

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature—the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.”

Emerald green, being associated with gemstone for which it is named, is a sophisticated and luxurious choice, according to Eiseman. “It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity—no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”

A Hard Life…..

December 7, 2012 | Filed under: Uncategorized

This cotton pearl earring has had a hard life and suffered an accident….being run over by a tire. But it shall be renewed.

My Christmas Open House is now over and I am just finishing up some jobs that will bring this event to an end but then getting ready for my appearance at the James St. N. Art Crawl on Dec. 14th. I will be located at H. Williams Jewellery, 136 James St. N. along with Caillin Kowalczyk, a fine artist. I hope to see you there.
And a thank you to everyone who came out to my Open House. It is always fun and of course inspiring to see how many of my pieces are sold.
And don’t forget that Barnim Pottery is open this week end with a 20% off sale. Richard Fisher Pottery is also open. Both potteries have wonderful offerings that make great gifts. Dundas is definitely a town to visit.
Carnegie Gallery is hosting its Christmas Small Works Exhibit. Many talented people have work there for you to peruse and perhaps choose for yourself or as a gift. You will see my jewellery along with that of others…..a great selection.

And don’t forget, that I am open by appointment. So if there is a piece that you would like to see, or just have a look at what I have, do give me a call or email.
