Simon Rompré

Simon 2013

 

Originally from Quebec City, Simon Rompre has been living on the west coast for many years.

 

His love for jewellery making first started while traveling extensively throughout Latin America in 1986. After settling on Salt Spring Island in 1990, he started his own workshop and since then has been selling his creations across Canada.

 

He likes working with silver especially in combinations with other metals such as gold, mokume and copper.

 

Mostly self-taught he draws much inspiration from many diverse areas such as Art Nouveau masters, modern art, traditional cultures, dance and music, as well as the natural surroundings he calls home.
