I would like to introduce myself – I am Parul, goldsmith and jewellery designer at Paruli Designs and currently working at the fabulous jewellery studio, Jewel Envy!
Please check out some of my work and stop by at the studio to try out one of my pieces on!
Chia-Chien Tsai is better known to everyone in the studio as Ellen. She was Jewel Envy’s very first intern when she was still a student at Ontario College of Art and Design. I remember her barely speaking a word and working hard to finish all the grunt work we would give her. While she was still a student we were amazed by her wax carving skills which we would take advantage of by giving her the duty of creating wax trees for casting. After graduating from OCAD Ellen joined the studio and has been with us ever since.
|Ellen’s latest creations: Sterling silver, opals, pearls, red laquer.|
Ellen continues to use her wax carving super powers to create organic and beautiful shapes in wax that she casts in various metals and her latest work has a unique combination of gems and laquer. Ellen’s fabrication super power is soldering hollow pieces – an difficult task and one you only get one chance to so do while soldering! She is a much more vocal member of the studio now and her sense of humour never fails to make me laugh.
