North Sun Studio is the workshop of Canadian Artist, Janine Bergamot. A member of Cre8ery Gallery, as well as the Manitoba Craft Council, her jewellery has been shared in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, and Germany.
Janine specializes in handmade artisan wirework jewellery. Using a variety of metals (copper, brass, bronze, titanium, sterling silver, gold-fill), many of the cold forge wire wrapping techniques used in her jewellery are adapted from the fibre arts (weaving, embroidery, French knit, Viking Knit). She has also expanded to include some traditional chainmaille weaves.
Her pieces feature mainly natural embellishments such as pearls, shell, stones, bone, and semi-precious gems. First choice is always for items that are natural and have not been dyed or significantly processed (standard practises for gem stabilization are ok). Jewellery may also be adorned with sterling silver, copper, 14k gold, and glass.
With a love for learning and a keen curiosity, she enjoys researching about her materials and passing on what makes them special as well as how best to care for them.
Necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, and brooches.
Wearable art; instant joy!
