about wagg designs
My jewellery designs are inspired by the anatomical complexities of the human body; the branching patterns of the circulatory system, the striations of muscle fiber and all the other intricacies. I enjoy uniting these organic lines with smooth geometric shapes. I work mainly in sterling silver, often incorporating resin, which is a material that I take great joy in experimenting with. I love mixing colours, layering it with texture and finding all the ways it can enhance the forms of my jewellery
My work has evolved from painting, to tableware to jewellery. Originally from Saint John, New Brunswick, I began studying at NSCAD University, following my affinity for painting but changed paths once I realized my love for metal in my first year. After completing my studies, I moved to Edmonton in 2006 and worked under the mentorship of veteran goldsmith, Wayne Mackenzie. I spent 5 invaluable years at his gallery and studio, Electrum, developing my work into what it is today. I have since set up my own small studio in Edmonton and have been working there ever since.
