Sandra Noble Goss has been a full-time professional jewellery and metal artist since beginning jewellery studies at Hornsey College of Art in London, England in 1970, and graduating from George Brown College’s jewellery program in 1973. Since then she has been a partner of Goss Design Studio with her husband and fellow metalsmith, Andrew Goss. In their 37 years in business they have shared several studios and have been in their present attic studio in their home in downtown Owen Sound since 1993.
Sandra's work has been exhibited widely in jewellery and craft exhibitions, juried and one-person shows. She has received many awards over her career, including the Steel Trophy in 2000. Her jewellery is hand made using traditional techniques and her metals of choice are sterling silver, brass, copper and bronze. A special passion for married metal and etching techniques enables her to use both drawn and photographic images in her work. In addition she designs metal sculptures, wall pieces and books, often combining etched metal images with intaglio prints. Sandra has taught many workshops including the Haliburton School of the Arts, and taught part-time for 20 years in the Jewellery + Metals program at Georgian College.
