emerging artist emily gill wins award, new poll up on damuse

Canadian Emily Gill was recently selected as this year’s first place winner of the Sixth National Student Jewellery Competition at Lafreniere and Pai Gallery in Ottawa, Canada.  A 2009 graduate of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Gill’s enamel broochs with removable elements are another fine example of jewelry that does double-duty.

  1. from the detail you can get a glimpse of the hours of hard work and dedication which went into each piece… she’s a serious up and comer in the field of canadian jewelery design. love it!

  2. Emily’s work is so intriguing. (second post with interactive jewelry in one week!)
    I especially enjoy the chance to see the backs of her pins. Such clever findings!
    Oh and the slide show is a great extra – the more visuals the better!
