Aflame Creations Jewelry – Handmade enameled copper jewelry
Handmade enameled copper jewelry
Enamel is colored glass powder that I melt onto copper in my kiln at 1500F. I use various techniques to create different designs, and I apply each one by hand. The enamel colors all react differently in the kiln, creating subtle variations; each piece is unique!
Location; 1209 Marginal Rd, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Megan Archer designs and produces each item by hand. Her collections are inspired by the dense forests, salty ocean waves and ever-changing skies in her hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and by the colours and landscapes of her travels.
After spending her childhood years in the rivers and forests of Nova Scotia, Megan flew overseas to live in London, England. During her 4 years abroad she traveled throughout Europe and Northern Africa, and lived in Lagos, Nigeria for 6 months. Upon returning to Canada, she landed in Montreal to complete her university degree in Cultural Anthropology. She continues to travel whenever she can.
Megan has been single-handedly operating Aflame Creations since 2011, and enjoys selling her work at the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market on weekends. Her collections can be found in select boutiques across Canada and the US, and she holds Juried Status with the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council.
A lover of life-long learning, Megan is a certified yoga instructor, speaks fluent French and will soon be learning Tibetan, plays classical piano and is learning to play the harp, and finds that ice-skating gets easier each time.
