and I will be happy to arrange a day and time that suits you.  We can either meet at my location, yours or an agreed upon location or an online zoom for a video one on one consultation.

I believe that the jewellery you wear should be as meaningful as it is beautiful. Whether you are searching for a statement piece or an everyday staple, I invite you to explore the ZEALmetal collections or contact me, Nicole Horlor, to create a bespoke piece tailored just for you. 

I have had the pleasure of creating jewellery for well over 20 years working with clients to create the perfect engagement rings, wedding bands, and special occasions pieces. My custom work is augmented by the ZEALmetal collections that offer unique handmade pieces for the perfect gifts to self and loved ones. 

Since graduating from George Brown college in 1999 I have had the opportunity to showcase my jewellery in over 50 galleries in Canada and the US. My creations have been shown in gallery shops including; the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Vancouver Art gallery, The Harbour Front Centre, as well as (along with) many other smaller independent galleries and unique shops.  Personal honours include; The Tommia Vaughan Jones Award for excellence in metal arts through the Ontario Craft Council, Best of Show in my graduating year, the Reeva Perkins award for enamelling.  I was also granted summer residency at The Harbour Front Centre. I have participated in shows such as the One of a Kind, Toronto outdoor Art Exhibit, Mode accessory show, and the Toronto International Gift Fair. 

Creating unique pieces of art collaboratively is a personal passion.  I would love to share my passion for shared design with you.
