My love for the art of the craft continually drives me to refine my skills and explore the endless possibilities that precious metals provide. My philosophy is to create distinctive pieces that showcase the simple beauty in raw metal and natural gemstones, while adding a modern twist. I am continuously inspired by my everyday surroundings, including nature, architecture and even my toddler.
Bella Grey grew from a not-so-distant time when my life was filled with uncertain and challenging personal circumstances (the end of a lengthy marriage, breast cancer, and the loss of my full-time job, all within a one year period) and my jewellery is very much symbolic of the joy, positivity, strength and resilience I discovered by allowing my creativity to flow freely and guide me through those experiences. It is these powerful forces that I so enjoy sharing with others through my jewellery.

At my dining room table in Toronto’s Beaches, I handcraft each piece in my collection. I like to add colour, texture and individuality to everyday wear. I am obsessed with chainmaille and mixing metals to create classic but texturally complex necklaces and bracelets.
I’ve always loved making jewellery, ever since I started making friendship bracelets back in grade school. Now, I do wire-wrapped earrings, necklaces and bracelets in brass, copper and silver, using semi-precious stones. I love the look and feel of older, antique pieces balanced by modern, clean lines. Both of these styles influence my jewellery, and this is where the name of my company comes from – neon to represent the modern, and lace to represent the vintage feel.
I take great pleasure in combining and contrasting the confectionary-like colours of stones, the lustre of pearls, the sparkle of crystal, and different shape elements to fashion jewels that are each truly unique pieces. To keep it new, I continue to expand my technical repertoire, and am always on the hunt for interesting new elements. I pride myself on the quality of materials, sourcing from reputable dealers, and label every piece with the components used.
