Our Story

Artisan Impact offers a unique jewelry line, with the craftsmanship and detail of old Yemeni and Middle Eastern cultures, creating a distinct look for each piece of jewelry. By working with sterling silver, gold and gemstones we create an unconventional mixture of contemporary and ethnic designs. The use of intricate filigree work in our designs demonstrates the impact of different cultures of our work.

Ev Arad is a fashion and jewelry designer, and author of several best selling interior design books. She is also the owner of Impact Galerie in Old Montreal where she sells her own line and the work of artists from all over the world.

Graduating from a three-year fashion design program in Milan, Italy, Ev rounded out her fashion education with courses in Interior and Industrial design. Her work is inspired by nature, ancient cultures and even fairy tales. "Creating new collections is always such an exciting process; I am always surprised that, after so many years, I can still develop a new idea into designing a full line."
