Throughout this month, we will be shining a spotlight on some of the wonderfully talented, local makers we have right here in North Dundas. Shopping locally has never been more important, and with products like these on our doorstep, why would we go anywhere else!
To kick things off, we would like to introduce you to our first ‘Maker of the Week’, Dawna Marquette Jewelry. Dawna says: ‘I never set out to make Jewelry, it happened accidentally. I was making a piece of glass artwork and wanted to use some unusual stones. A friend suggested I go to the local bead shop and when I did, I was hooked! I started out using beads but fell in love with metal and wire work. As soon as I felt confident enough, I started using sterling silver and semi precious stones. I am a hairstylist by trade, so am passionate about design and colour. Each piece I create is made with that in mind. I am always learning, and enjoy spending long hours in the studio. Each piece is created with love, attention to detail, and hope that the person wearing it will feel amazing wearing something unique that only they will have”.
