Happy Sunday readers!
We are celebrating our tenth anniversary this year—a milestone for Gillian E. Batcher, who is not only the owner operator of Jewel Envy but also, a woman, a daughter, a friend, a goldsmith a wife, and a mother.
She opened her first jewellery studio ten years ago in downtown Toronto.
She has a degree in Psychology, and graduated with distinction, from The University of Western Ontario. After completing her degree, she went to George Brown College and completed the three-year Jewellery Arts program, graduating with distinction.
Next she went to Florence, Italy to study an intensive jewellery course, focusing on textile techniques in precious metals, and she participated in a three-year residency in the metal studio crafts studio at Harbourfront Centre, Toronto.
Gillian has been running with great success her business, congratulations to her, to her husband Matthew, and her gorgeous baby Everly, for these ten years of growth in this incredible, competitive and difficult career.
We, the resident goldsmiths at Jewel Envy are very proud of being part of this achievement.
