Mikel Grant Jewellery

Mikel Lefler of Mikel Grant Jewellery has been driven by the power of self-expression through art throughout her life.

A detour through university resulted in a biology degree and a collection of insects that inspired her first line of jewellery. After graduating, Mikel began training with silversmiths and discovered that creating jewellery was her life’s passion. She became a full-time independent jeweller in 2002.

Mikel Grant Jewellery reflects Mikel’s personal standards for integrity in craft, technique, and finish. All pieces are handmade on the Sunshine Coast of BC.

Mikel Grant Jewellery is one of the many Circle Craft members that will exhibit at this year’s Circle Craft Market at the Vancouver Convention Centre West from November 7-11, 2018.

We’re right in the midst of wedding and anniversary season! Whether you’re looking for something extra special to get for that soon-to-be-married couple or a unique (and traditional!) anniversary gift for your other half, you should definitely visit our Shop on Granville Island for inspiration.

The Circle Craft Shop is full of beautiful handmade items for the home, all of which make perfect wedding gifts! Try a wood cutting board, bowl, and spatula (Claudia Hayward of The Wooden Forge); glass candle holders (Jeff Burnette); or a ceramic cream and sugar set (Liz de Beer of Klaywerk Studio). We also have lovely handmade cards (Jan MacLeod of Plant Papers).

Our Shop also carries several items ideal for traditional anniversary gifts. For your first wedding anniversary, there are lovely paper cards and artwork (Jan MacLeod of Plant Papers). A leather journal (Rudi Diesvelt of Rare Discovery) would be great for a third anniversary; a rugged wood box (Neno Catania) for a fifth. If you’re celebrating your sixth anniversary, we have iron card holders (Gina Medhurst of Kootenay Forge) and letter openers (Kelly Backs of Tree Studios).

Chi’s Creations (Booth 219)

Anat Basanta Designs (Booth 404)
Anat Basanta uses textured patterns that typically appear in fabrics, ribbons, and laces alongside woven silver to capture the softness, fluidity, and airy nature of knitted textiles. She tends to work with simple forms and strives to reach the meeting point of beauty and intrigue.
