SHEILA SMEDLEY AND SARABANDE TREASURES.
Canadian jewellery artist Sheila Smedley developed her passion for the creation of custom-made jewellery while travelling and living in Britain for a number of years. Sheila has been inspired particularly by the elegance and opulence of fashions dating from Elizabethan and Tudor periods and incorporates these and other similar historical styles into her work.
With a strong background in graphic design, Sheila soon discovered that jewellery design came naturally to her. "I love colour, especially those amazing colours found in nature. Gemstones and crystals are a wonderful medium to work with and can be a strong personal expression for the wearer, reflecting individuality and mood" Sheila believes that every woman can create her own personal 'treasure chest' filled with pieces to be enjoyed, envied and perhaps handed down for years to come.
Sarabande Treasures offers unique jewellery, linking historical adornment to the fashion trends of today.
