Meet Aimee Taylor, owner and designer at Sanity Halo Jewelry. She named her designs after the therapeutic effect she experiences when making jewelry for friends and family. Working with her hands and making beautiful pieces for people she loves, created a happy sensation or aura around her. A conception that came to be name Sanity Halo Jewelry. Aimee lives in Vancouver BC with her extroverted husband and beautiful son. She says “Living next to the Fraser River, we are fortunate to enjoy all that living close to nature brings; admiring the changes in season, riding our bikes and walking along the trails.” Aimee has worked for many years as a horticultural therapist and educator and understand how important it is for your mental health to work with your hands, learn by experience, create art and be exposed to nature. She enjoys making these pieces and each pair of earrings, necklace or ring is unique. Her favourite designs create a metal effect using polymer clay. She enjoys the freedom of hand building and the lightweight versatility of this material. It’s perfect for every day, as you really don’t notice that you’re wearing it, that is how comfortable this jewelry is. She hopes you enjoy her unique statement pieces, that are flexible in their aesthetic, function and occasion.
