This photo jewelry is designed and made in Vancouver, BC. The artist combines her experience in photography, her work in a silversmith’s studio and a lifetime of making art for herself.
Jade uses her own photography and incorporates it into jewellery that she makes by hand. Her signature pendants and earrings are transparent, which brings the focus to the image. This simplicity throughout the Black Drop line is what makes the pieces so effective.
Inspired by her surroundings and travel, Jade works frequently with tree imagery, but she also loves urban architecture and citylines.
In order to honour the subject matter that she celebrates, her goal is to have as small a footprint as possible. Jade supports local businesses for labour and supplies, redirects acrylic from the landfill by using off-cuts from their acrylic supplier’s larger jobs whenever possible and also minimizes and reuses packaging at every opportunity.
