ELISABETH SOPPELSA

 

Born and raised in a small town in the German part of Switzerland, Elisabeth studied jewellery making and design at the School of Applied Arts in Zurich.

 

Curiosity brought Elisabeth to Canada in 1972, after having spent three years in the southern part of France.

 

Her early childhood years, which were spent on a small winery, created a very strong bond to nature. Her jewellery today is still a reflection of this bond.

 

Elisabeth creates uniquely one of a kind pieces in gold and silver.
