Christine started hand-making Bodacious Beads woven beaded jewelry in 2011, in a search for alternative forms of creative self-expression. Bodacious Butterflies butterfly wing jewelry came to be in 2012 after taking a stained glass art class from Sunlight Art Glass in Surrey, B.C. Christine’s love of butterflies steams from their symbolism of growth, change, and transformation. Christine began silversmithing in 2016 to further pursue her love, passion, and craft of jewelry making and design.
Christine began her silversmithing education at the Workingsilver Teaching Studio in New Westminster, BC, after which she was accepted into and has completed her first year in the Vancouver Community College Metal Arts Program in Vancouver, BC. Christine will continue her silversmithing training at VCC in her 2nd year starting in September 2019.
These are some of Christine’s handmade Butterfly and Silversmithing creations:

Christine collects mounted butterfly specimens and enjoys sharing her one-of-a-kind creations with everyone!
