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
