Christy Feaver is an acclaimed metalsmith, a unique designer who has made Tofino her spiritual home for the last 20 years. It is here in beautiful British Columbia that Christy has molded the base for her internationally known jewelry designs to flourish.
After many years living amongst the majestic mountains of Whistler, Christy started her journey into the world of jewellery design at The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. Here she developed her craft with master goldsmiths and in particular the renowned jewelry designer and sculptor Robert Lee Morris. It was Morris who taught Christy to follow her heart and discover a signature style that both defines and represents herself, a style that can still be seen in her pieces today.
Inspired by all things that move and change, Christy’s mantra flows throughout her artwork. Looking through her collections one can see insights into her key influencers. The love and light she emits through her being mixed with the physical shapes of the landscapes that surround her. It is with her link to the ocean in particular where you will see the core structures within Christy’s work reveal themselves. Look closely, it is within the detail that show how the connection of all things are bonded, how each piece starts to tell its own story.
