How I can help you?Donelle's Silverfinch Jewelry Design
Hi! I’m Donelle Clarke
Using both traditional silversmithing and metal clay techniques I am able to offer you a variety of unique jewelry pieces to wear.
I think it’s interesting that my grandmother’s family came from the silver mines in Spain. She was an award-winning seamstress, and I think she would be very proud of my second career.
How it All Started
Making jewelry started years ago when I found a creative way to relax after long hours in nursing. The first thing I learned to make was Aboriginal beaded jewelry in California. My interest stemmed from my Aunt who is Aboriginal.
Outside of techniques, it taught me that making jewelry required a commitment to continuous learning.
I kept studying different techniques: wire wrapping, etching, you name it. Then I found classes in traditional silversmithing and I started to feel like I found my niche. As I continued to study I also learned about metal clay and fell in love and haven’t turned back!
Local Home Small Business
I work from home, in East Vancouver, BC, Canada, and therefore am able to keep costs down. Learning has always been something very important to me, and it also adds to my toolbox of what I can offer you. It would be fair to say that I’m curious, and blessed to have wonderful mentors in my life!
How Can I Help You?

All Ethically Sourced Gemstones & Metals
All materials I use, be it gems, sheet metal, wire, or metal clay, are ethically sourced. Without a doubt, I believe I owe it to our environment to keep every aspect of my work above board. Besides, you then end up with something you can be proud of to pass on to your beloveds.

It should be noticed that as a small business everything possible is done to keep costs down, thereby saving you money. There are no employees, so nothing happens quickly, but then a work of art should take the time and attention to detail that it deserves.
