How Aurora Lux Jewellery Came To Be.
From a young age, Cheryl Kernahan has always had a passion for creating with
her own two hands. It was when she decided to pursue her vision and learn
as much as possible about jewelry design. Leaving her career in graphic design
behind, a brand new adventure into the jewelry world began. Through each
technique, she quickly fell in love with the unbound opportunities to create
art from a variety of materials. From wire, metal shapes, chains and gemstones,
Aurora Lux was born out of the desire to adorn individuals with pieces that
inspire and piques their curiosity.
Through an amalgamation of contemporary style and sleek minimalism,
Aurora Lux embodies a sense of finesse and versatility, drawing inspiration from
nature, geometry, and every day objects.
Her individual style and self-taught techniques create truly innovative
& unique collections. Working primarily in mixed metals, semi-precious
stones, vintage elements & hand-forged copper and brass pieces, each piece
is constructed by hand to ensure meticulous attention to detail, quality,
and functionality. Her aim is to create jewelry that encourages strength,
confidence and a sense of adventure in its wearer.
The entire process, from the initial concept to the finished product,
takes place in Cheryl’s studio, in Victoria, British Columbia.
