Hey there!I'm a pretty new silver smith! I have just started up a little work bench of my own and I bought the EZ torch. It has been working really well the last few months, but this week the flame has started to surge and sputter.

Do you consider yourself a professional, student or emerging artist. Are you a gallery, school, organization or guild?

Tell us about your education.
My name is Emily Seaboyer, I am a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art& Design (NSCAD) University- I hold a bachelor's degree in Jewellery Design & Metalsmithing with Minors in both Drawing and Art History. I work from my home studio in rural Nova Scotia, which is happily shared with my husband and two lovely cats- Scam & Nimbus.
My work is very often inspired by organic textures and tactile surfaces- and is always very process oriented. I am facinated by the fact that the things we choose to decorate ourselves with bare witness to our life's experiences. It is an honnor to create jewellery that will be considered important to another person, and is a source of great joy for me to share.
Share some of your career highlights or goals.
As an emerging artist in 2005, I exhibited my work alongside some of the most talented professionals in the country as a part of the "Northern Lights Exhibition" at Toronto's Design Exchange. Since that time I have found opportunities to show my work in local galleries and to devote time to the development of my studio & expansion of my business.
I am currently working on an exciting new collection of work titled Cloud 9. Currently the collection boasts beautiful gemstone and rose-cut diamond pendants, but will soon include extravigant mixed-metal engagemnt rings!
