Pawel Bruszewski finished his Goldsmith education in Poland in 1972. He worked as a professional jeweller and goldsmith in his home country until 1984. Pawel came to Canada after working as a jeweler for almost a year in Austria. To this day, European style and professionalism are still evidenced in his work as a designer, jeweler and wax model-maker. He continued his education by receiving Canadian credentials from George Brown College in 1993. He subsequently began teaching part time at George Brown in 1995, and continues to the present day as both a day-time and evening professor.
