Graciella Quinones Delgado
My name is Gracie Quinones and I’m the owner, designer and maker at Gemspell Jewellery. I was born and raised in Havana Cuba and made Canada my new home many years ago. I create my pieces in my home studio in Vancouver, BC. Every piece comes to life surrounded by the amazing energy of the Pacific North West.
How was Gemspell born? One day, a few years ago, I decided to start making jewelry as a creative outlet. I started by putting beads together to form simple earrings and bracelets. Then I took a silversmith class, and that was it. Never looked back. There is something about silversmithing that comes so natural to me and I feel in my element when working with metal and fire. By incorporating gemstones in my designs I felt everything was coming together in a way that made sense to me and so Gemspell came to be.
Gemspell offers modern gemstone jewelry for the free spirited woman who wants to feel empowered, beautiful and unique. Carefully handcrafted with sterling silver and gemstones, my jewelry is inspired in the beauty of stones and the natural energy that surrounds us. From everyday studs to big statement pieces, you’ll always find something that speaks to you; just the kind of jewelry you want to wear every day.
Gemspell has been featured in magazines such as British Vogue's July, August and September 2017 issues, as well as The Destination Issue of House of Coco.
