The maker behind Fervour’s Own reminds us that jewellery can exist outside of the binary.

- BY MORGAN MULLIN

Kiersten Holden-Ada didn’t plan on getting back into jewellery. The creator behind Fervour’s Own Jewellery—a collection of strong-lined, organicall­y shaped, substantia­l pieces—studied the craft at NSCAD. “Towards the end of my degree, I started to burn out and needed to step back from that, so put my jewellery tools away for years and years. After seven years, I was having my first child and didn’t have any solid work and was contemplat­ing next steps and thought hey, maybe I should dig out those tools again as a way to have some creative work alongside having small kids.”
