About me

Let me introduce myself, my name is Laurie. I am an artist of indigenous origin. More precisely; I am part of a Cree community, First Nation.

I have always been attracted to jewelry; especially handmade jewelry. It’s unmissable when I come across an artisan’s kiosk; I take the time to look at each piece; like I was in a museum! I always told myself that one day, I would like to learn how to design a collection to my liking. It was in 2020 that I decided not to wait any longer and to combine my passion for jewelry with my creative side.

TUKNUT is actually a little nickname I affectionately use to refer to members of my Indigenous family. I make with care; each of the jewelry and accessories TUKNUT in my workshop located in Gatineau. I like working with stainless steel for its quality and durability and semi-precious stones for their beauty, colors and originality.
