I acknowledge that I live and work in Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq People.
Aflame Creations creates colourful handmade enameled copper jewelry. Enamels are coloured glass powders melted onto copper in a kiln at 1500F. Each colour reacts differently in the kiln, creating subtle variations to every piece.
Megan Archer (they/them) is an Autistic, nonbinary human living in rural Nova Scotia, designing and producing each piece by hand. Their collections are inspired by the dense forests, salty ocean waves and ever-changing skies at home, and by the colours and imagery of their internal landscapes and world travels.
After growing up in the rivers and forests of Nova Scotia, Megan flew overseas to live in London, England. Four years of travels included Europe and Northern Africa, and a 6-month stay in Lagos, Nigeria. Upon returning to Canada, Megan landed in Montreal to complete a university degree in Cultural Anthropology. During the winter seasons of 2017-2020, Megan lived in the Himalayan foothills of northern India and Nepal.
Megan has been the sole operator of Aflame Creations since 2011. Their unique jewelry can be found at weekly farmers' markets, and in select boutiques across Canada and the US. Megan holds Juried Status with Craft NS, and is an organizer with the Halifax Crafters Society.
A life-long learner, Megan speaks fluent French and loves the challenge of a new language. They grew up playing classical piano, but the Celtic harp is their most recent musical passion. These days Megan enjoys video games, jigsaw puzzles, learning Welsh, and befriending crows.
