It began in a pile of gravel...
I will never forget the day a truck backed into the yard of our new home in Mayerthorpe, dropping off my dream! I immediately climbed to the top, sat myself down and began digging for treasures. Although each pebble held it’s own unique beauty, I soon discovered the true beauty that lay within. And so my life passion began!!
My journey into the jewelry industry began in 1986, acquiring my first job at Irving Kline Jeweler’s. They were long time jewelers’ in Edmonton and
the shop my father purchased his first Omega watch from.
The years that followed provided a diversity of knowledge. Working with
other Jewelers, acquiring my GIA certification, traveling abroad to various
jewelry shows, winning a design award and landing a business partnership with a third generation Jeweler in Calgary.
In 2006, our family moved back to our roots in Sturgeon County to create my dream boutique, Concept Jewelry Design.
*Fun fact - My graduation "life goal" was to start my own jewelry shop!
