Hélène is a Vancouver BC designer/goldsmith with a passion for beautiful gemstones and precious metals. She works with the philosophy that objects that are thoughtfully conceived, hand made with technical precision and infused with artistic passion have an energy that cannot be attained with mass produced objects. With this belief, no two pieces are identical and each are unique and one of a kind.
