Bellow are brief descriptions of the talented craftpersons involved in creating every piece Bassowsky jewellery.
Aaron’s love for jewellery and gemstones started in his hometown of Grand Falls, New Brunswick where would sell his handmade jewellery at the local farmer’s market. His company was called “Originals Etcetera”. Okay not the greatest name but times were different then and he was young and foolish! He moved to Quebec City to study at the Quebec City Jewellery School (École de Joaillerie de Québec). He fell in love and now lives happily ever after in a small town outside Quebec City.
“Hey are these guys related?” Well yes, yes they are! brothers to be precise. Alec is the mastermind behind everything web related. Be it our website, Facebook or Instagram. He makes sure you’re in the loop of what’s new at Bassowsky Jewellery. He’s a real matchmaker! Connecting you with that perfect piece of jewellery. I hope I sold you on how great he is!
Marie-Anne, where would we be without you? Under an avalanche of receipts no doubt! Marie-Anne is the conductor and like any good conductor she keeps the train moving and on time. But wait there’s more! By day she’s an archaeologist, I’m not kidding, the real deal. By evening (and some weekends, sorry about that Marie-Anne) she’s one of our most valuable assets.
Every piece of Bassowsky jewellery starts with the 3D model. Émile has the know how to make the virtual 3D model come A-L-I-V-E! Well he can make a darn good printable 3D file that is! Don’t worry he doesn’t actually make living breathing jewellery… I mean I don’t think he does… I better go check, just to make sure…

To best describe Carl would be to compare him to some sort of advanced jewellery making machine sent back in time to advance our knowledge of jewellery design and fabrication. I say this with the utmost respect, this dude is out of this world when it comes to his talent and experience. A master jeweller and teacher at both jewellery schools in Quebec City.
