Portrait of an Artisan~Fredrick Prince Jewellery

Artfest Toronto at the Distillery Fine Art Show Aug 30-September 2

Fredrick Prince uses semi-precious tones and antique brass plated chains which are plated locally in Toronto.  He is a one man show!

Fredrick designs, sources, purchases and produces everything that he makes.  As the sales rep, manufacturer, web guy and graphic designer, Fredrick makes all of his pieces originally using a mix and match of materials.

Fredrick's Words:

Out of all of the things I do, craft/artisan shows are my favourite because they allow me to interact one-on-one with customers and I have started many new friendships from them.  Meeting new people and seeing their reactions to my pieces is very inspirational and keeps me doing what I'm doing. 

 

Inspired by warm Pacific breezes and bright beams of sunshine, FPJ's Spring/Summer collection is all about the California coastline.

History marks this state as a miners paradise, where in its day, it was the first state to mine gold.  It was the top destination world-wide which attracted immigrants by the hundreds of thousands all trying to strike it rich.  The highest immigration numbers occured in 1849, these immigrants were known as the forty-niners.

Fredrick Prince Jewellery fuses warm brass chains and semi-precious stones in hues of coral, cobalt, blush and smokey grey; reminiscent of the rocks and minerals mined decades ago.  That mixed with a playful nature and carefree coastal attitude,  is reflective of the 21st century woman- our modern day forty-niners.
