Our Dream Team
Designer, Metalsmith and Creator of Emma Glover Design
Emma’s passion for jewellery design started as a child. It combines many of her lifelong true loves: art, the act of creating ( yes, getting messy!), and the magic of gemstones and metal, and how the earth formed them.
The instinct to create wearable art led her to study Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with world-recognised instructor Billy King. There she learned a vast array of metalsmithing techniques, and began to hone her skills and style.
In 2008, Emma launched Emma Glover Design and hasn’t looked back! She works from a garden studio in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada where she meets with clients, sketches designs, and embraces the creative process! Emma is known for putting great care and creativity into each piece she makes.
When Emma’s not in the studio chances are you would find her with her family; an amazing husband, two wild and wonderful kids, and the world’s sweetest dog. They spend as much time outside as possible by the beach or under big west coast cedars. Her children share Emma’s love of all things creative, so there is always some kind of gluey, sparkly, painty mess to be found around the house.
Manager of Operations and Wholesale
A life long lover of everything art and design, Carla came to the jewellery industry naturally. She started with her own beaded collection of bohemian, beach inspired jewellery many years ago, but wanted to pursue metal smithing and the creation of fine jewellery.
Carla’s position with Emma Glover Design has grown and evolved naturally since she started in 2015 and she now plays an integral role in the studio’s functioning.
Carla was born and raised on the east coast of Australia, and as an avid traveller took the long way to arrive in her home of Canada, soaking in all the arts and culture she could around the world. Her honed, creative, editing eye and unparalleled organizational skills, along with the attention and care she puts into everything she does help to make Emma Glover Design what it is today.
When she’s not in the studio you might find her thrifting, eating chocolate, or staying cozy in front of the fire with her lovely partner... even in the summer, the west coast of Canada is a bit chilly for this Aussie.
