I’ve gained some new followers lately and and I thought it would be an appropriate time to introduce myself. First of all, my name is Karissa Chow 👋🏻 and as a child I grew up surrounded by traditional hands on techniques, such as sewing, woodworking, metal work and so much more! By the age of 12, after dabbling in many of these arts, I started experimenting on my own by creating wire wrapped jewelry. I quite enjoyed working with my hands, creating many different artsy things. When graduating from high school I had two choices in my mind for a career path...Jewelry Design at George Brown College OR Hairstyling at Marvel Beauty School. I chose Hairstyling and had a very successful 23 year career in Toronto, Vancouver and finally settling back in my hometown Lucknow, Ontario. Always keeping jewelry and sewing as my artistic outlet, I decided it was time for change. As of August 2018 I retired from Hairstyling and began to pursue my life long passion of Jewelry Design. I find myself most days in my bright and airy shop working with my hands, whether it be creating beautiful timeless jewelry, sewing, sketching or simply dreaming up my next creation. The past few weeks I’ve devoted all my time to designing and creating hundreds upon hundreds of fabulously tailored face masks to help prevent the spread of Covid19. You can find my Grey Ox COMBAT MASKS 😷 (and jewelry 😜) at www.greyoxmetal.com
