Set among the farm fields in rural Cowichan Station, just a ten minute walk from Bright Angel Regional Park, you will find Morgan Saddington working in her studio-garage. Morgan is an award winning jewellery designer with over 15 years of experience.
Her work is a combination of ancient chain-maille patterns mixed with traditional silversmithing techniques, creating modern designs that result in uniquely wearable art jewellery pieces. Morgan received the Best Jewellery Award at the Sooke Fine Art Show in 2010 for her piece titled “Entwined”, a necklace that combined two hand-made chains woven together. She has gone on to have her work chosen for many juried art shows, most recently her “Lobaria Lichen” earring and bracelet set for the “Botanically Inspired” Show at the VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver.
Her inspiration comes from the environment that surrounds her. Picking up vegetation on nature walks, pouring over photographic images in books and magazines, observing the various textures of materials that are in our daily lives, all play some part in this inspiration.
Morgan works mainly in silver with touches of natural and hand coloured copper. Her specialty is chain making and her work consists of one of a kind necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants. Her style is characterized by her unique hand forged sterling silver beads and coloured copper pendants. Described as classically beautiful, her work is timeless and easy to wear.
