Hello! My name is Nicole, but pleases call me Nikki. I am a wife, mother and the creative behind S&S. Actually... everything behind S&S, as this is a one-woman show! However, I couldn't do it without my dear momma who started this stepping stone business over 25 years ago and taught me everything I know. She is a master fused-glass artist, and has a studio in Regina, SK. Once she ended production of stepping stones in 2013, and the demand continued I decided to step up and take it on in 2015. That is when Sand & Stone (aka the remix) was born!
After six months of learning all aspects of the business (not just the jobs I had been doing all of my teenage years at the studio), my husband and I relocated to London, Ontario and I took the business with me. A short 14 months later, we did another cross-country move to South Surrey, British Columbia - where stepping stone production is now based out of. If you're not located in the area, not to worry- I ship all across Canada and the USA!
I love creating these timeless home and garden pieces from beginning to end. I do every step of the process by hand, from drawing the patterns, cutting and design of the stained glass, right through to the pouring of the concrete and polishing of the finished pieces. I put great effort and attention to detail into each and every piece I make. Most of all, I love to be creative and make my clients vision come to life.
Stepping stones are a great way to give a personal gift or mark a momentous occasion. There are many customizing options available including custom motifs, engraving and more. Each piece is 100% original, hand-made and one-of-a-kind!
I take great pride in being such a unique, artist-based, Canadian business. Thank you for your support!
