Gold Welcome Text

Hi! I’m Fran, the creator of Open Fire Jewellery in Ottawa, Canada. I design, cut, form, solder, set and polish your jewellery.

My Open Fire journey began while working at a local jewellery store offering gemstones from around the world. It was there that I soaked up every bit of knowledge I could about the origin and history of gemstones and jewellery design.

Using skills acquired from my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as receiving basic metal-smithing techniques, my passion grew into my dream and Open Fire was born in 2015.

With a lot of hard work and the support of my community, I have been a full time creator of unique gemstone jewellery ever since.
