Potrait of an Artisan~Devine

Devine is synonymous with distinctive, 'One Of A Kind' pieces of jewellery. Ted, Carol and their son, Jake, work in sterling silver, and various karats and colours of gold, usually incorporating precious and semi precious stones. Ted is well known for his clean lines, and his perfectly fashioned bezel settings.

Unusual for their trade Ted, Carol and Jake do all their own work - designing, making by hand, stone setting, polishing and marketing. Carol's background is in interior design combined with her talent for drawing creates the perfect atmosphere to marry an artist's talent with customer's wishes for the numerous custom orders they create each year. Jake has been assisting in the workshop since he was old enough to hold the tools, and apprenticing and perfecting his own skills full time for the last 4 years! 

Ted, Carol and Jake along with their irreplaceable manager Tracey Cavanagh love to meet new customers and introduce them to their work. You can find them at their shop, Devine, located in the charming and historic Chateau Laurier Hotel in downtown Ottawa, or showing and selling their wares at wonderful weekend shows like Artfest!
