Collection: Jean Hughes - Jewelry

Needlework and jewelry making have been my passion for many years. It really started with my Grandmother when I was ten years old. She was a special lady and I wanted to be just like her when I grew up. She taught me many types of needlework.
Stitching was my first passion and through the Embroiderers’ Association of Canada I have attended and then taught many needlework workshops.
When I was introduced to beadwork, however, something changed. There is something about beads that cannot be ignored. It’s how they look. It is how they feel and how they make you feel when you’ve created something.
I have studied techniques with some amazing designers in Canada and the US.
With bead embroidery, I can combine my love for beads and for stitching. Pearls are very special in my work. I can do traditional pearl knotting and also add modern crystals. Of course, gemstones open another door.
My jewellery manufactured for retail has been influenced by the needs of my customers. My stitching background allows me to create a line that is “metal free” to meet the needs of those allergic to metal. Many bracelets and necklaces are designed with ease of closure for arthritic and elder customers. Many have magnetic closures.
I believe that we should wear our jewels. On a night out, a day out, grocery shopping and of course, at home. We just feel better.
