Natural Icon

   Nature abounds with every day treasures! At Natural Icon Designs I make well made, handmade jewellery with a focus on semi precious gemstones, bone, amber, wood and freshwater pearls. I enjoy and take pride in creating every piece myself. Unless otherwise noted all pieces are one of a kind.

If you are interested in making your own treasures, I offer jewellery making classes taught in Calgary, including bead stringing, wire wrapping, making earrings, bracelets and necklaces. My fully equipped studio has a relaxed atmosphere with a low student to teacher ratio and classes are affordable with no pressure to over spend.

  You will not only have fabulous accessories, but also enhanced confidence, self esteem, and the fun and joy of creativity!

   Unlike classes at bead shops, you may bring beads you already have to a class. Supplies for one project are included in the price of the class so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of each bead that you are buying so the focus is totally on learning and designing.



 Why can't every trip I take be a road trip?

   I spend a lot of time being a vagabond of the mind, wandering from thought to thought, roaming through stories and ideas. A vagabond is a traveler who drifts from place to place with no fixed address. In some less favorable definitions a vagabond is a rogue or vagrant, not to be trusted with their lack of plan or direction. This collection is inspired by the desire for freedom, travel and adventure that can innocently take hold of you while you are taking care of the day to day.  I've designed this collection with rich, warm metals and contrasting gemstones including Turquoise, Red Jasper, Carnelian and Aquamarine. Wearing one of these pieces may remind you to take the time to have an adventure, wander about, spend some time with nature and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.
