Susan and Mavis Llewellyn are a mother and daughter team who have been creating beautiful jewellery for the past 50 years. Originally from England, Mavis, along with her husband Jim, took his hobby of making wire jewellery and opened their business The Amulet in 1963 in Toronto. Their daughter Susan began making jewellery at the tender age of 8 years old. Mavis joined the local lapidary club and began cutting gemstones to use in her creations. Mavis and Susan brought their business to the beautiful town of Stratford in 1988. They joined Art in the Park in 1989 and never looked back.
Using 14Kt Gold Filled, Sterling Silver wire and quality semi-precious gemstones, each piece is crafted with expertise and care. The art of wire jewellery is an ancient one, examples of which can be seen dating back to Egyptian times. There is no soldering involved in the making of wire jewellery, it is created solely from bending and twisting the wire. Inspiration for designs comes from all around them, in nature, and from their Celtic heritage.
