My name is Gerrie Huenemoerder & I am the founder and creative behind Avelina Jewelry. I want to help you find the jewelry you love, jewelry relevant to your life, jewelry that you will want to wear.
Avelina Jewelry is a Brand of Fine Artisan Jewelry inspired by Life. I wanted to create a line of jewelry inspired by nature and all the adventures in this journey we call LIFE.
I am a graduate of Toronto’s George Brown College’s Jewelry Arts Program. I also won a design award for a Diamond Bracelet from DeBeer’s Canada.
At Avelina Jewelry, We are on a mission! Our mission is to create meaningful, beautifully designed and skillfully crafted pieces of jewelry relevant to each stage of your life. That’s right, you are the driving force behind what we do!
Whether it be helping you create your proposal moment with an engagement ring or celebrate a milestone like an anniversary or birthday with a piece from one of our other collections, we want to be there for you and with you all along the way! We are passionate about sharing these special moments with our clients.

These days you can find me and my team working in the studio delicately and precisely crafting each design by hand. We believe in using ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones with materials of the highest quality. All metals used are recycled as we utilize and preserve traditional goldsmithing skills to bring our designs to life. “Made in Canada” is something we are proud to say about each piece that leaves our studio!
One thing you will notice across my collections is the natural feeling and the organic flow within my work. Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the rural and natural area I am so fortunate to be able to live in, its hard not to allow that to have an influence in my designs. My designs have a strong Art Nouveau influence, the first jewelry to represent flowers, leaves, birds, butterflies and nature.
Recently I have been creating enamel & silver pieces that were inspired as I dreamed of the Beaches of The World. Also, some Furry Friend pieces, Angel designs, Unicorns and Biker pieces are in the works.
Avelina is an old germanic name that represents life, strength and beauty. This line of jewellery is about celebrating the events, and adventures in life & creating jewellery personal to YOUR LIFE.
Creating jewelry that our customers want to wear, and jewelry that is made to last as an heirloom piece, is what Avelina Jewelry is about. Our jewelry is about 30% heavier than commercially store bought jewelry. It is made to last, we believe in doing it right.
Our designers would love to custom create or personalize a piece of jewelry just for you. We work in sterling silver (925) or all carats & colours of gold. Connect with us, our team of designers will create that special piece for you.
Creating Custom Diamond and Precious Stone Rings is one of my passions. Over the years I have created many diamond engagement, wedding and anniversary rings, as well as womens and mens diamond rings. It is awesome to be a part of the story of my customers lives and there is always a story. Stories of chance meetings becoming love, sometimes tragic stories of loss that makes their love stronger, business success and awesome adventures. The common thread is always about love, the celebration of love. It is my awesome pleasure to be a part of the celebration of that love.
Working with families, small and large is also a very rewarding experience. From designing a piece of jewelry from your Childs art work, to a personalized Family Pendant. Again, being a part of the story, sharing some love and passion with special people is what life is truly about. To be able to share our passion for life and design with others definitely isn’t work, but love.
I hope you can take a few minutes to explore a little deeper and see which jewelry pieces speak to you. If you have questions don’t hesitate to contact us and say “HI”. Stay in touch with us by joining our VIP Club. That’s where I show all the sneak peeks and special touches.
If every Memory was a bead we would all wear a One of a Kind Work of Art. That is how the Artisans at Avelina feel about this line of jewellery & we want to help you with your one of a kind work of art.
Avelina Jewelry is located in South Huron, Ontario. We design, create, teach and meet with our clients in our location here. Many of our clients are not close to us, so for them we can video chat to ensure good communication in the process of designing that very special piece of jewelry you are looking for. The needs of our customers are of the utmost importance to us.
You can find Avelina Jewelry in some Art Centres and Art Stores across Southern Ontario.
For The Love of Art, 725 Notre Dame Dr, London is one of the centres where Avelina Jewelry is available.Also, jewelry classes are being taught there by Gerrie.
