Hello Jewel Envy Readers!
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about myself as a maker. I am Skye Stutt, the newest part time member here at Jewel Envy. My journey into jewellery making began when I was nine years old and started taking beading classes. From that point on I was hooked and wanted to learn as much about jewellery making as I possibly could. This eventually lead me to OCAD University where I studied jewellery design and metalsmithing in the Material Art and Design program, which I graduated from this May and now it has led me here. Most of my inspiration comes from nature and lately a lot of it has been coming from insects specifically. My graduating body of work Metamorphosis (which won the Lily Yung Memorial Award for strong experimental and conceptual components), was based on understanding society’s fear of insects and representing the sources of this fear through jewellery (I’ve included a few pictures of this work below). I enjoy creating one of a kind art pieces as well as lines of unique & wearable jewellery. I am so excited to be able to keep creating both styles of work here at Jewel Envy!

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
