Nancy Sutton creates classic, elegant jewellery that is comfortable to wear. She enjoys working with all sorts of stones, pearls, glass, crystal, silver, gold, copper and incorporating vintage pieces. She began creating jewellery in 2003, and took courses in silver work and jewellery techniques while experimenting with her own ideas.
As a child, Nancy's grandparents ran an antique shop in an old barn on their property in Vermont. She loved to spend time looking at all the items, especially the old jewellery, and seeing the pieces worn by her mother and grandmother. Her father, who was an accomplished artist, encouraged her to be creative.
Her jewellery is owned by individuals in Canada, China, France, Poland, Sweden, and the USA. She hopes that the beauty of the stones and unique designs will be enjoyed for years to come.
Nancy has shown her jewellery at the Hospice at May Court (Homes for the Holidays), Art in the Park, Urban Art at Minto Park, the Old Ottawa South Art Festival, the Glebe Community Centre and the Ottawa Gem & Mineral Show.
