Elaine Wigle

We have some beautiful new work by Collingwood, Ontario jeweller, Elaine Wigle. Elaine designs all her own work using unique stones and pearls, accented with handmade components in sterling silver and gold. Each piece is a wearable work of art. The first piece is a large white and grey pearl pendant on an 18" knotted grey pearl necklace. The second piece is an ammonite fossil pendant on brown pearls. Each necklace can be worn as shown or the pendant can be removed so that the pearls can be worn seperately and the pendant can be combined with a sterling chain. The earrings are sterling silver and sterling silver with white pearls.

Thomas Aitken & Kate Hyde

Berry season is finally here and nothing would make your berries happier than being in a Thomas Aitken berry bowl. After you have washed your berries and let them dry think about serving them in a bowl turned by Thomas and beautifully decorated by his wife Kate Hyde. Kate has done a series of bowls, pitchers and vases with a clothesline motif as seen above and we have some new tulip vases and pitchers that have just arrived in the store also by Kate. You can keep the joy of summer around all year long by having a piece of pottery painted by Kate Hyde in your collection.

Gary Kennell

These beautiful 'live' edge cutting boards are made by Gary Kennell of Brockville, Ontario. Gary has been making quality wooden cutting boards for a number of years but we especially like these boards with the rough 'live' edge. They are not only functional but also a great conversation piece. All wooden cutting boards are better for your knives than plastic or glass and will last a life time if treated properly.
