Emilie Cardinaux's artistic inspiration comes from childhood summers spent in the Thousand Islands along the St. Lawrence River—nearly fifty miles of freshwater paradise. Here, boating is not only a cherished pastime but a way of life. Emilie's nautically inspired fine jewelry embodies the spirit of dockside living. Fabricated by hand using the ancient technique of lost wax casting, she produces her jewelry sustainably, with ethically sourced materials. Her studio is located right on the water in downtown Clayton, New York in the heart of the Thousand Islands.
