Ann Shewan

Ann has been searching for her creative outlet since childhood. After dabbling in painting, sewing and knitting, she was finally introduced to jewellery making in 2012. It was a perfect fit and she hasn’t looked back! Starting with a basic beading class, she has since expanded her interests, and is delighted to be exploring the wonderful worlds of metal work, enamel and resin.

Ann is currently working on her Fundamental Jewellery Skills Certificate at George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario. Meeting other jewellery enthusiasts, learning new techniques and sharing ideas has become an integral part of her life! She is enjoying this new creative venture as she builds her skills and develops an ongoing workshop portfolio.
