Vendor Profile: Howling Wolf Jewelry
Haley Kondra is the maker behind Howling Wolf Jewelry. She was born and raised in saskatoon where she still resides. For as long as she can remember she has always been creating, from drawing to pottery to repurposing furniture, and finally, silversmithing. She took two silversmithing workshops lead by Doug Frey, where she quickly fell in love with the craft, just as she suspected she would. She soon bought some basic tools and set up shop in a spare bedroom, where she continues to create. Using fine and sterling silver, Haley also incorporates many different stones into her work, but turquoise is her favourite. She is constantly learning and teaching herself new things, and has found that to be incredibly rewarding. Her business name, Howling Wolf Jewelry, came from her love of the outdoors, but she also chose the name because she thought the image of a howling wolf was incredibly strong, powerful, and beautiful, which is exactly how she wants those who wear her jewelry to feel.
