Robyn Kennedy is a classically trained goldsmith, jeweller and designer. She has pursued various forms of artistic expression all of her life including painting, interior decorating, sewing, stained glass and furniture refinishing. Now Robyn channels all of her creative energy into finely crafting, distinctive jewelry from gold, sterling silver and precious gems. Robyn claims,” Creating, beautiful, inspiring jewelry is my passion!”

The mysterious allure of gemstones, a love of sparkles and a perpetual desire to create beauty led Ms.Kennedy to complete a 3 year Jewelry Arts Program at George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The certified course involved studying goldsmithing, silversmithing, diamond grading, gemmology, metallurgy, gem setting and design. Robyn graduated with honors in 1990 and has been immersed in the jewelry trade ever since.  Currently Robyn works from her studio in a tranquil Southern Ontario lakeside town. She artfully blends exceptional craftsmanship with gold, sterling silver, precious and semi-precious gems in miniature timeless sculptures.

Robyn finds inspiration abounds – in nature, art and architecture. ‘Everywhere you look’, she says, ‘ is a design idea just waiting to be nurtured into a jeweled ornament!’ She feels a personal affinity with the decadent bejeweled and enameled styles of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, loving both the sensuality of the natural forms and fluid shapes prevalent in Art Nouveau jewelry, and the stronger, more geometric lines intrinsic with Art Deco jewelry.

Jewelry possesses its own unique personality. “I focus on hand crafting memorable designs with attention to the smallest of detail”, she says.   ‘Beautiful jewelry adds a sprinkle of magic to our lives’
