The concept behind this kinetic ring, named Magnificence Stellaire, was inspired by the immensity of the starry sky in the farthest reaches of the northern hemisphere, a sky that unifies us. The central stone, a black opal, portrays the aurora borealis with colorful and turbulent wisps of air in the vibrant darkness of the night. The stone rotates 360 degrees in four directions (South, North, West, East), thanks to a carefully designed and complex mechanism. This system consists of various elements, including eight white freshwater pearls, which symbolize the lunar phases. On the sides of the ring, several golden drops shimmer tracing the magnificence of the Milky Way. It also features moonstones that epitomize the black holes of our universe. It represents not only the magnitude of the sky but also the importance of each different element in our system. A vast sky that unites us all despite the great distances that separate us.

* Selected Design. The Canadian Crafts Federation organized and executed the Canadian programming at the Canada Guest Pavilion during the Cheongju International Craft Biennale 2009 in South Korea and for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games exhibition at the MOV, Museum of Vancouver. Being recognized by one’s peers is extremely rewarding and provides the energy to keep pushing ideas forward. It was a great honor to have the ring selected for two such important events and to represent Canada internationally.

Always inspired by the importance of each element of our surrounding and their interaction between each other, Mystical Flowering was designed to represents the rare Night-Blooming Cereus.  A magical plant that once a year, it revives as it from trance, for only the duration of the evening. Attracted by its sublime aroma, the Sphinx moths pollinate them, giving them life. The two fingers ring portrays the shape of that butterfly and this unique flower that communicate the continuous cycle of life.

The Tactus Ring juxtaposes the cold silver to the warm brass and copper. This hinged ring draws a bridge between the traditions of the metallic suits of armor worn in the middle ages to the historic representation of jewelry throughout time. It restores the importance of precision, expression and precious embellishment , while questioning how the sensation of touch has been amplified over the centuries, especially through the influence of digital culture. This ring received the Second Prize  –  Larger Than Life Exhibition in Print 2011 – Metal Art Guild of Canada. http://www.metalartsguild.ca/
