About the Artisan
Marilyn’s creative journey has taken her from designing outfits for paper dolls as a young girl to drawing, a fleeting affair with paint, carving candles and designing cards with dried plant material gathered from her property. After moving to Grey County in 2002 she spent untold hours designing the rural gardens of her dreams and still has them open to the public as a member of the Rural Gardens of Grey and Bruce along with her little gallery of adornments shaped by her hands. Her love of fashioning silver and copper jewellery with her hands came late in her life and has become a passion for the last 8 years, exploring and applying the many techniques to create her pieces, including fusing powdered glass to metal my hand with a torch. The addition of gemstones, from Apatite to Tanzanite, adds sparkle or enhances the design of the metal used.
