Janet Whittington creates elegant, artisanal jewellery featuring intricate multi-cultural motifs, using fine silver, sterling silver, bronze and semi-precious gemstones.
Janet has studied jewellery-making techniques at George Brown College, Haliburton School of the Arts, The Oakville Art Society, and Thames Institute of the Arts. She has been fortunate to work under the tutelage of Celie Fago, Susan Watson-Ellis, Todd Jeffrey Ellis, Dianne Karg Baron, Lis-el Crowley and Gail Stouffer.
She applies textures to soft and pliable forms of silver or bronze, forms components, and fires them in a small jeweller’s kiln, leaving behind pure sintered silver or bronze. The result is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind jewellery.
Playing with colour and balance delights her. Janet’s creations are inspired by her travels and her appreciation of the natural world. She considers each earring, pendant, and bracelet, an individual work of art and strives to produce designs that are timeless and elegant.
