Jewelry handcrafted with real flowers from my garden and local wildflowers
Hey, I’m Larissa!
I am a passionate and innovative Canadian artist from Penticton, which is a small town in the Okanagan Valley in western Canada. It’s a beautiful place surrounded by evergreen mountains, clear lakes, and vineyards.
I love my garden and the trails around my home, and the forest and nature especially inspires my work. When I’m not creating and designing jewelry in my studio, you can usually find me outdoors. I love hiking and foraging on my favorite local trails.
My love of nature has also led me under the sea, leading me to train as a professional PADI scuba dive master. In the winter months I often work as a scuba guide around the world. I have backpacked and scuba dove in over 50 countries to date! I’ve written some articles about my adventures abroad and favourite local hiking trails here.
As a jewelry designer and artist, I wanted to create pieces that people can carry close to their hearts and remind them of the natural beauty of our world. Using real pressed flowers from my garden, as well as wildflowers, botanicals, and natural stones, I craft jewelry that embodies the Pacific Northwest.
You can find me at many artisan markets in the Okanagan Valley, or feel free to shoot me a message or leave a review – I love to hear from the people that connect with my art!
