Jewellery designed and handmade by Carmel Boerner (she/her/hers) in Penticton, BC, on the lands of the Syilx Okanagan nation.
Mostly I make one-of-a kind art jewellery pieces for submission to exhibits. As an eternal student and lover of a deadline, I am inspired by exhibition calls and thrive on conducting research and exploring new materials and techniques, creating a piece around a concept. My work has been exhibited in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.
I am a graduate of Vancouver Community College's Jewellery Art
and Design Program. I've worked for almost 30 years in local government and non-profits in Canada and the U.S. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and an MBA in Arts Administration, both from the University of British Columbia.
I'm a Citizen of Craft. You can view my profile here and my CV here.
