Rosalind Ford -
Embossed jeweller / Screen Printer
As an Ornithologist and Elementary School Art Teacher, Rosalind Ford finds inspiration for her creative works. Embossed jewellery, and screen printed paper-doll stationary are her more popular craft items found in stores around the province. The Embossed Jewellery is made using a Rolling Mill. A rolling mill works like an old ringer-washer machine, except it is small and has steel rollers. The feathers or leaves are laid on top of the metal, and the pressure between the two steel rollers pushes the organic into the copper or silver. Each feather/leaf lasts for one print only, meaning that each piece of jewellery is printed with a new organic.
