Since 1995, owner and founder of Y. Stern carefully handcrafts a fine selection of silver and gold jewellery and silver and niobium watches. Yair Stern is a self-taught artisan who moved to Canada just seven years ago. Since then, has been experimenting with new materials and techniques.
Yair work's involves Mokume Gane, a Japanese metalworking procedure that produces a mixed-metal laminate containing distinctive layered patterns in the work. Niobium is a type of soft metal that is often found in a mineral. It's name was found in Greek Mythology.
Among Yair's work, you’ll find various styles and materials that form a large eclectic collection with prices ranging from $35 to $ 1500. All of Yair's jewellery is created in his studio where he personally controls each stage of production from design, preparation of Mokume Gane, assembly, stone setting and casting.
