Background-- After a successful career as a medical biochemist Doreen shifted gears and returned to university, this time at the University of Victoria where she obtained her degree in History in Art.  She then followed up with 2 years of silversmithing courses at Camosun College.  Now more than fifteen years have passed, all filled with her love and wonder of designing and working with precious metals and semi-precious beads and stones. 




For over 10 years I have been designing jewellery for commercial galleries and private clients. Unique designs continue to unfold evoked by the world around us - a cloud formation, a waterfall, a piece of drift wood, the shape of a rock - images from legends, stories or a piece of music. What ever the source the result is a one-of-a-kind fascinating sculptural story framed in silver. I love designing each unique piece and delight in having one of my pieces make someone very happy
