A George Brown College jewellery grad will very likely see a big bump in orders after being featured in Vogue. 

Louise Solomon graduated from our Jewellery Methods program in 2011 and shortly after launched her own company Hand of Solomon Open New Browser Window. Her work is featured in a piece about Indigenous designers on Vogue.com Open New Browser Window

"Standout pieces from Solomon’s latest collection include braided wedding bands inspired by sweetgrass, available in a variety of finishes from sterling silver to 18-karat gold," Vogue.com's Christian Allaire writes. "Her medicine wheel pendant, made from four colors of Swarovski crystals, represents her culture’s four directions teachings, or the call to live a complete and balanced life. Her latest collection was also inspired by wolves and includes wolf claw castings made into chains, pendants, cuff links, rings, and earrings."
