I am Isabelle Gervais-Laberge jeweler for the company Créations GLi.
Let me introduce myself to Isabelle Gervais-Laberge, living in the Laurentians, I have four wonderful supporters in my life: my husband, my big boy and my dog, a faithful workshop companion. I have a professional studies diploma in jewelry from the Sud-Ouest trade school and the University of Quebec in Montreal in education.
I am fortunate to have at home a space to work, create and teach. In addition to working for my small company Créations GLi, I also give introductory jewelry courses at my workshop in Saint-Colomban in the Laurentians.
The passion for creating jewelry was born during an introductory jewelry course. The moment I started cutting metal and handling the torch, I knew I would continue to learn more in the field. So I enrolled in the Southwest Trades School in Jewelery for a few years. Going back to school was quite an academic and family challenge, but luckily, during those great years of study, I had some great encounters that turned into friendships.
Even today I love to cut metal manually and I still have a flame for soldering. I refine my jewelry with textures and reliefs embellished with gems. I take inspiration from the nature around me and I adapt to the room as it is created. Each piece of jewelry created contains an emotion and a passion, which is what makes it unique.
