Jenny Pulling - GUelph ON
"The early stages of StrayStones began during the semi-nomadic years I spent in Latin America, where I was inspired by the many talented and resourceful artisans I encountered. Through these artisans I began to explore creating jewellery from waxed linen, wire, gemstones, and found objects like shells and seeds. Born from these creations was StrayStones; named for my early pieces that incorporated the 'stray' stones I had collected on my travels. I returned to Canada in 2011, driven to expand on my skill base. I came upon an informal metalsmithing workshop in Toronto and signed up immediately. The workshop introduced me to a number of basic tools and techniques, and gave me just the right amount of instruction and confidence to continue exploring the exciting world of metalsmithing."
