Products by Designer: Valerian

Canadian artist Elaine Barrick ("Valerian"), shop owner and head designer, has been a member of the alternative punk/Goth community since 1983 and began making jewelry for her own use at that time. She studied painting and 3D/mixed-media at the Emily Carr College of Art & Design, intending to make a living in fine arts. However she began selling her jewelry online to the public in 2004 after severe chronic tendonitis forced her to give up her career as a painter and picture framer. She hasn't looked back since!
