the artist Barbara TakasakiBurlington, ON

Barbara originally had a successful career as a textile artist.  She then studied metalsmithing and jewellery fabrication at George Brown College in Toronto in 2003, and launched her career as a jeweller.  She now produces unique designs combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary flair.  Her work is entirely handmade in sterling silver often combining semi-precious stones along with unusual shells, beads and leather.  She is influenced by the organic forms, colours and textures found in nature.  She has exhibited at the Carnegie Gallery and DVSA, and has sold her work through galleries in Nova Scotia, Quebec and Toronto.
