“What sets Delane apart from other jewellery designers is her unique ability to weave her clients’ personal stories into her exquisite designs. I’m eternally grateful to Delane for creating this precious reminder of my parents’ love. Every time I look at my ring, their story shines through and brings me joy.”
– Tribute to Love client | Laurelea Conrad
About Delane Cooper
Delane Cooper is a Dreamatizer who dreams people’s story into wearable art. As a custom jewellery designer and goldsmith she expresses her creativity by making beautiful jewellery that tell meaningful stories for the wearer. Her process involves meditation and dreaming. She works with sterling silver, gold and platinum, precious coloured stones and Canadian and conflict-free diamonds.
As a young child, story time was the perfect opportunity for Delane to engage her imagination whether at the library, at her grandmother’s house or creating a story to travel to far away lands while tucked away in her wood-scented wardrobe. Story-writing and sketching became Delane’s favourite way to express herself creatively.
In her youth dissociation was a way to escape and dreaming was a tool to dissociate. As a creative, Delane worked at harnessing a negative behaviour into a positive creative way to express herself hence why she has dubbed herself the Dreamatizer.
Early in her career, Delane achieved early success in marketing and sales in technology. But in 2003 she found her true calling in jewellery design. Delane now marries her love of people’s stories with precious jewels and metals.
Delane’s desire is to see Canada recognized as a country that supplies the global jewellery industry from mine to market. As a result, she volunteered and held leadership roles in the jewellery community as President of the Metal Arts Guild of Canada and Managing Director for the Toronto International Jewellery Festival.
A source of calm for Delane is a place called Prince Edward County.
