Ann Wylie - Toal
Thank you for your interest in my work. For over 29 years I was designing and creating jewelry from the artistic village of Flesherton in southern Ontario, Canada, with my own gallery. I am completely self-taught. I’ve developed my own tools and techniques for my unique style of continuous line wire working. I recently closed my gallery and am now living in Owen Sound and visiting grandchildren in Kitchener.
My creations have been distributed to over five hundred stores across Canada and some locations in the USA and Australia. At the beginning of my career, I participated in over 150 juried retail craft shows, during which time I opened my own gallery shop - in 1993, and closed in 2015 – a wonderful 22 years!
Careful planning and research resulted in affordable designs that appeal to a wide range of tastes, and which are recognizably unique. I am constantly designing new pieces and lines and I am open to suggestions. I love custom designing
I have several lines of jewelry covering classic to contemporary styles. My Colour Changes line combines practicality with versatility as you can change the coloured discs to match your outfit – great for travelling! Talismans, Honouring Women have been part of my own spiritual and emotional development for over 20 years, and I am deeply grateful that they appeal to and support so many other women as well. I indulge my love of semi-precious stones in my Stone Wear line. And I cover some classic designs in my post and hoop earrings.
I like to design for the whole range of tastes. If there is something you are looking for and not finding please contact me.
I am grateful to have been able to support myself most of my adult life with jewelry making. Please feel free to leave orders with staff at the Southampton Arts Centre if you do not find what you are looking for.
