Tony is a highly skilled and trained jeweller. He began his career in 1997 with a jewellery repairs certificate and continued on to complete George Brown College’s Jewellery Arts Diploma Program in 2000. As a goldsmith, he extended his studies becoming a certified diamond grader and setter. To enhance his design capabilities he has embraced 3-D computer technology to fashion his ideas in a two-dimensional photo-realistic rendering to aid his client’s vision of the design.

He is a five-time honourable mention winner in 2002 – 2003 of the 3-D Digital Still Image in Caligari’s monthly gallery contest (3D software company monthly contest), and a first-place winner in the jewellery category of the 2nd annual Millennium Artist’s Art Exhibition held in 2002.
