ARTIST'S STATEMENT

SANDRA NOBLE GOSS

"I have been a jewellery and metal artist since 1973. I work in my studio in my home and sell my work across Canada. My metals of choice are sterling, brass, copper and bronze. In addition I design metal sculptures, wall pieces and books, often combining etched metal images with intaglio prints. My primary aim is to produce jewellery that has a dual function: to be beautiful and also be a wearable "memorandum". When worn it evokes a memory, is a reminder, acknowledges a history and is an aid to memory. The piece of jewellery can itself be a momento; from words, to images, to maps, to vintage and family photographs."

Sandra's work ranges from sculptural wall pieces, often etched with vintage photographs, to one of a kind jewellery in sterling silver, to innovative and affordable contemporary jewellery in limited series. All her work is made by hand using traditonal goldsmithing techniques as well as unexpected methods of her own invention. Her materials include silver, bronze, brass, ribbon, copper, enamel and semi-precious stones.
