Since graduating with honours from the Jewellery Arts Program at George Brown College in 1992, Lisa Ridout has been dedicated to producing the fine art of handcrafted, precious metal chains. Lisa is known as a leader in her craft, honouring and continuing a traditional art form at threat of becoming a lost art in this age of mass-production.
The traditional skill of chainmaking is a delicate and time-consuming craft. The chain is entirely handmade by drawing silver into wire form of varied thickness, then turning and weaving rings into delicate patterns. Drawing on historical patterns, as well as new combinations of her own creation, Lisa also blends her absolute love of beads, stones and crystals into her pieces. The results are exquisite, award-winning examples of tactility and timeless beauty.Lisa Ridout’s Exclusive Jewellery is available across Canada and in the U.S. at select retailers and is regularly featured at craft shows and exhibitions across Ontario.
