more about the artist

Driven by her belief in a universal language of shapes and symbols, Toronto, Canada-based jewelry designer Anne Sportun looks to nature for inspiration. Anne Sportun finds perfection in asymmetrical organic forms and subtly translates these images into her work. By allowing pave-set diamonds to undulate on an irregular gold band, Sportun combines traditional goldsmithing techniques with the unconventional. Anne Sportun’s studio is located in a fast-paced urban environment; however, it is in the quiet of her lakeside cottage retreat where she rejuvenates her creativity by connecting to nature, along with her family and dog. Awarded in Canada for her excellence in precious-metal work and contemporary design, Sportun has only recently made her work available to the international market. Sportun is currently honored by having the image of her hands and rings on a Canadian 65-cent postage stamp.

more about the artist

Creating jewelry is very natural to me, yet it takes a very high concentration of a special kind, an inner listening and seeing. This takes me to a secret garden, a place in consciousness where things of great beauty and grace exist and are absolute realities. My pieces are just as much gifts to me as they are to you. May their uniqueness touch the uniqueness in you.

more about the artist

Alex Sepkus is out! Or, as he might say, Alex Sepkus is also not so out. In a world full of designers scrambling to turn fine jewellery into an offshoot of the fashion industry — and therefore, by nature, attuned to the fad (it‘s called the rag trade for a reason) — Alex remains so focused he never feels the need to chase anything. Why should he? His picture is big, like a magnificent mosaic; the components comprise detailing so small he and his workforce require microscopes to execute it, which is only the first contradiction from this designer.
