Kelly Allanson finds jewellery an amazing way to express herself. Drawn to textures and layers, both are seen throughout her work. The boxes of beads that accompanied her on childhood family vacations were just the beginning of her jewellery journey. Graduating from Vancouver Community College’s Jewellery Art and Design Program in 2000, Kelly gained a strong base knowledge of traditional techniques allowing her to develop and refine her nature-inspired design aesthetic. She has spent the ensuring years building on those techniques, branching out and exploring her craft, and selling her work at various galleries and artisan fairs. She gladly shares her knowledge and experience with her students in the various workshops and classes she teaches.
