meejumArts showcases the work of Miriam Kaufman, previously a part-time goldsmith and fibre artist, who has jumped into creating full-time. While continuing to make silver and gold jewellery, Meej (as she is known to friends and family) is focusing more on making glass beads, metalwork related to fibre (shawl pins, shawl sticks and stitch markers) and on dyeing, spinning and knitting natural fibres. She has a tiny studio in a light industrial space at Ossington and Dupont.

I like your work, but I’d really like different colours…
I can custom make anything you see on the website, you can specify the colours and shape of the bead/s. Just email me and we can figure it out.
I can’t make it to any of your events, can I see your work at your studio?
I am happy to make an appointment to meet you at my studio. Parking in the area is limited, or by TTC it is on the very frequent Ossington bus route or the less frequent Dupont bus route.
Why don’t you have a regular online store where I can just click on what I want and put it in a cart?
I am trying to keep prices low and this is one way to do it. Web hosts charge around 3% of transactions to do this, and then the credit card company charges a similar amount, plus a per-transaction set rate — all of which adds up.
Why don’t you charge HST? Is it included in your price or are you cheating on your taxes?
Neither! As a micro-business, my revenue for the foreseeable future is less than $30,000 per year, the cutoff for charging HST. I do declare all income from the business for income tax purposes.
Really, you sell talismans?
My sterling silver talismans help you focus your positive energy in difficult work or life situations. You can also imagine the reflective surface as reflecting negative energy away from you. They are imprinted either with original runes or words. The words can be on the outside and more public or on the inside and totally private. I sell them either on a sterling wire with a bead that I’ve made, to be carried in a pocket or on a keychain, or on a sterling necklace. You can specify bead colour when ordering.
