About Us

Esther and her young family live in the small community of Mayo, Yukon. Her family enjoys “city-time” when travelling throughout western Canada to take part in Trade Shows and Christmas Craft Shows. They also enjoy the balance of spending time at home in Mayo. Esther makes an observation about life in her small community: “There is a peacefulness here that comes from living in the middle of the Yukon wilderness with people who choose to go through life in an unhurried way.”

Artist Background

Yukon jewellery designer, Esther Winter, uses Canadian symbolism as well as symbols that are close to the heart on her sterling silver jewellery. She enjoys telling the stories or meanings behind the creation of each symbol and especially loves to hear how the piece is meaningful to the person who eventually will be wearing it.

Creative Process

Jewellery designer, Esther Winter draws each original Winterchild symbol by hand. The symbol is then forged into a hardened steel stamp. Next, the stamp is hammered into the sterling silver or copper to create an imprint. Final touches include curving the silver or copper and polishing.
