Andrea Blais creates jewellery that embodies the essence of beauty and emotion. Her work is handcrafted in Canada using traditional goldsmithing techniques and modern technology. Executed with detailed precision Andrea’s designs are timeless, future heirlooms. Pursuing intimacy between work and wearer, Andrea coaxes beauty from fine materials through calm inspiration and careful technique.
Growing up on the prairies in Alberta, Canada, Andrea developed an appreciation for the diverse landscapes and abundant beauty of natural form. This inspiration was fostered when she began her arts degree. Working in 3 dimensions, her focus was on sculpture, glass and jewellery + metals. The added emotional element - the connection one can have with a special piece of jewellery - resonated with Andrea, shifting her focus to the smaller realm. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction from the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary, where she lives and works today.
Andrea combines art and adornment using precious metals and gemstones as her medium. In addition to her inspired collections, Andrea creates custom work, collaborating with clients to evoke and embody their individual aesthetic. Her original designs are available for purchase online and in boutiques and galleries across Canada.
