Fortymile Gold WorkshopDesigner Leslie Chapman hand-fabricates jewelry, incorporating high-purity gold ethically sourced from her family’s mine on the Yukon’s historic Fortymile River. Some pieces feature 24-karat pure gold, locally found mammoth ivory and diamonds from Canada’s Northwest Territories. These unique pieces of wearable art often have elements that evoke Mayan and Egyptian designs but include northern motifs like caribou and the aurora borealis.
