Since its inception in 1983, PATINA METALWEAR has earned an enviable reputaion world-wide for excellence in workmanship and originality of design. In the Autumn of 2007. Michelle deVuyst became Patina Metalwear's new owner. The company has since been based in Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA. Michelle is excited to take on some of the existing designs and is developing new and creative designs for a more modern and contemporary look.
Patina Metalwear's quality eye-catching designs historically sold and still sell at the best boutiques, galleries and mail-order catalogues throughout North America, and continue to be Hand-Made in Canada. Michelle mastered the art of hand crafting creations of the original designs in an apprenticeship in Toronto where the company was originally based.
Patina Metalwear, a forerunner in anodized aluminum jewellery with unsurpassed customer service, presents sophisticated as well as energetic yet playful creations. They range through eyeglass holders, lanyards, earrigs, pendants, necklaces, bracelets and, of course, the world famous Patina Metalwear wrist watches.
Patina Metalwear designs are made of wonderfully colourful and light to wear anodized aluminum. When aluminum anodizing was first introduced to the alternative jewellery scene in the early 1980’s, the traditional bright colours: white, black, fuschia, turquoise and chrome yellow were predominant.
Now, in addition to those brights, Patina Metalwear has developed a range of more subdued and rich colours like copper, lime green, smokey teal, coral, dusty rose, mocha, mint, sage, brown, red, steel blue, plum, olive green, navy, purple, orange and many more.
