Winterchild Silver Jewelry - Symbolic, meaningful sterling silver jewellery from Canada's North.

Sky Symbols - Symbol Selection

Our original sky symbols are available on all of our handcrafted sterling silver, copper, pewter or gold jewellery (necklaces, earrings, and bracelets). Esther Winter, jewellery designer 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, copper, pewter or gold to create an imprint. Final touches include curving the piece and polishing. Handcrafted in the Yukon, Canada.

Aurora Dancing Jewelry Symbol on Handcrafted Silver Jewelry

Aurora Dancing

I named this lovely dancer Aurora, she dances to her own rhythm, and in her wake she leaves beauty. Were I the wise woman of an earlier, less-scientific time, I believe this would have been my explanation of the magical Aurora Borealis.

Falling Star Symbol on Sterling Silver Jewelry

Falling Star

In her final performance, Falling Star dives gracefully and swiftly, going out with such extreme energy and brilliance that she leaves all of us on earth breathless.

Harvest Moon Symbol on Silver Jewellery

Harvest Moon

Once this image came to me I could not get it out of my mind, it is the true harvest moon, complete with a branch of fall leaves along his crest and dried leaves gracefully floating below into space.

Midnight Sun Symbol on Handcrafted Silver Jewelry

Midnight Sun

In my Yukon community, on the Summer Solstice, most people never get any sleep. With the near 24-hour sun shining, we run marathons or have parties on a nearby mountain top. Truly, we do anything but sleep. With eyes closed and a smile, this image is my conception of the midnight sun. Always present, he must sneak in a few winks whenever he can!
