Dan Wade was born in Iqaluit, Nunavut. He began making jewellery in 2005 when he enrolled in the Jewellery and Metalworking program at Nunavut Arctic College. He is now working beside his peers as a full time jeweller. What he loves most about being an artist is the freedom of expression it allows, transforming the beauty of nature into wearable art. He enjoys working with his hands and seeing how a plain piece of metal or ivory can be transformed into something beautiful. His work has been displayed at the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum and has been worn by many people, among them the premier of Nunavut.
