Lena is an emerging jewellery designer, goldsmith and current Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in downtown Toronto. She strives for a balance of technical excellence and compelling design, producing work that is clean, refined and sometimes eccentric. She believes strongly in upholding traditional methods of metal fabrication while carrying them forward into the future of adornment. The piece “Crackle Ring I” arose from recent material explorations, and the desire for a less controlled making experience. It is the first in a series of playful, bold works celebrating colour and unpredictability.
