After having worked in the corporate world for over 20 years, Christine left her career to pursue life at home with her children. Not content to sit at home, she began a small catering business, The Bite Size Food Company. However, it was the purchase of an earring making kit from a local craft store that was the springboard for launching Pink Gargoyle Design. Jewelry design quickly took over, and she began to explore different techniques before finding that soldering and silversmithing were her passion. Now recognized for creating soldered collages of vintage elements, stones and intricate wirework, Christine has a loyal following of collectors of her one-of-a-kind feminine art jewelry. Christine proudly sells her jewellery at galleries in British Columbia and Alberta. She is garnering media attention with a feature in Belle Armoire Jewellery magazine, and collaborative work with local fashion designers for runway shows. Last ye ar, Christine began doing bookbinding as well, and her handstitched journals with mixed media covers have been selling out at each market.
