Getting to know the people behind Gemstone Metalworks Jewellry & Blacksmithing

Samantha Grayney

I wear many hats within our business, owner and operator, jewelry artist, blacksmith apprentice, customer service, sales, bookkeeper, marketing, and more.

I have my family to thank for my wonderful creative background as it was my wonderfully talented mother who taught me to paint, and to be creative with my art. I used to go with her to craft shows when I was little so when my sister said to me, lets take our jewelry to a craft show I jumped at the chance.

My skills have grown over the years and in February I took it to the next level and started wire weaving. At the moment I am one of three people in Nova Scotia using this skill set. Making the decision to become an entrepreneur has been the best thing I have ever done, its been a hard journey to this point but I am enjoying almost every minute of it.
