My passion and appreciation for the craftsmanship of jewellery started at a young age. 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. For me, there is no greater satisfaction than bringing my ideas to life in my work.
I have been making and selling my stained glass jewelry in the GTA for more then twenty years. I also do commissioned pieces. We do festivals and art fairs throughout the GTA (mainly Toronto) and Niagara Region.
The 2016 collection is inspired entirely by Lara Bazant`s three-year-old son Max and his deep interest in outer space. Lara’s new fascination with the beauty of our universe grows exponentially alongside Max. Each piece is named collaboratively – reminding us to keep exploring and wondering, while remaining connected to the energy and people around us. New and notable for 2016: Orbit Wraps made with recycled leather from a local interior design firm.

Life is too short to be lived in black and white when there are an infinite number of colours in the world. Sometimes, a little colour lifts you up from a place and transports you somewhere new and wonderful. I explicitly create simple beads that allow the colour to be the focus. My jewellery designs are modern and simple, allowing the wearer to express their love for fun. I believe that everyone should live their life in colour.

I express my thought, feelings and moods.
