Brenda Roy is one of the few metal artists in Canada extensively using stone inlay in her work. She is constantly experimenting to find unexpected and non-traditional ways of incorporating stone into jewellery pieces.

“Much of my work explores contrasts in colour and texture: smooth stone and polished metal set off by fused or roller printed textures; the play of colour in unique stone inlays; precious gems and metals paired with rough minerals or broken pottery shards; and contemporary designs that have the feel of ancient artifacts I love to play with the surprise of asymmetrical designs and unexpected material combinations.” – Brenda Roy
