This Is Us


The Shop is synonymous with beautiful 'One Of A Kind' handcrafted pieces of jewellery.  JW, works in sterling silver and various karats & colours of gold. We love incorporating the beauty of precious and semi-precious gemstones, and have created a design standard that is clean and uncluttered and often highlighted by JW's perfectly fashioned bezel settings. Bringing together stunning beauty and easy elegance!  

Almost unheard of these days in the world of fast fashion and mass production Carol and JW do all their own work - designing, making by hand, stone setting, polishing and marketing. They take great pride in the process of making, taking satisfaction in the workmanship, time and effort to create something of beauty that can be enjoyed and worn for years.

Custom Designs

We offer custom designs, a full range of jewellery repairs and appraisals.
Along with their own work, The Devine's have created an environment within their Shop to gather an exceptional array of other artisan works - other jewellers as well those of glass, leather and silk!

J.W. Devine

Like Father Like Son!

JW has been assisting in the workshop since he was old enough to hold the tools, and began jewellery apprenticing and perfecting his own skills full time since 2009. The great thing about JW is he loves stepping out of the workshop and getting to be on the front lines in the Shop or at the Shows as much as he enjoys the hours in the workshop making and creating.

Carol Devine

Our heart, our soul!

Raised in Toronto and Ottawa. Carol puts her design background and education to use creating designs that capture the wishes and whimsy of our clients in our custom commissions.  Her gorgeous pearl line of necklaces and bracelets are a Shop highlight, and if that weren't enough she holds the reins of the business side of the organization as well! Carol splits her time between the Workshop and Shop and Shows!

Together Ted and Carol have two sons – JW and Sullivan.

Ted Devine

Our Jewellery Guru!
(1945 - 2018)

Ted pursued a High School teaching career for five years before deciding to take a sabbatical. Setting out to explore his creative interests, he, quite by chance, discovered the worlds of silver and gold, and as they say... the rest is history, in this case a very pretty one! He has continued on this fascinating path for over forty years. Honing his skills and the designs people love.

He began his professional career by showing his wares at craft shows on the Terraces of the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and graduated to a variety of small shop fronts in Ottawa’s Byward Market. These experiences evolved into our Shop at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in the heart of Ottawa where we have welcomed our clientele since 1982. He felt blessed to have the opportunity to work side by side his son Jake and share his vast knowledge.
