Uniti - A spotlight on local artists.

Canadian artists are amazing!
If you didn't already know this, you soon will.

Meghan Lynn Schnarr only recently graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design, specializing in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing, but already her work has been featured in galleries all over Ontario.

"As I studied and learned more about design and fabrication, I became interested in the intimacy of creating something to be worn on the body and its connection to the wearer.

When people see my work, I would like them to be curious about the stories that inspire it and the people and places it celebrates."

Meghan's keen sense on the personal connection we attach the jewellery, and its ability to preserve memory, made her the best candidate to meet with Gordon and Leah Pinsent to create a piece for Uniti.

Gordon and Leah saw Uniti as a way to pay tribute to their wife and mother Charmion King, and Meghan was the perfect designer to make this desire a reality.

Can't wait to see this piece!
