Danishka Esterhazy's female driven characters ignite the screen with Talent INC Canada's Alexis Whelan as Ava in the upcoming feature film thriller,'Level 16'.

The best part about working on this film was that it was female-dominant and the female characters had such power and strength… even in adversity”

— Alexis Whelan

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, April 17, 2018 / — Talent INC Canada's longtime client, Alexis Whelan stars as Ava in the upcoming feature film, 'Level 16' directed by Danishka Esterhazy.

John Stevens, her mentor for many years, recalls meeting her when she was just 9 years old.

She walked up to me after she had gone on tape for me and shook my hand and looked me in the eye, and said, "Thank you. It's been a pleasure doing business with you"!

"I remember thinking, who the heck does this kid think she is?" said Stevens.

It comes as no surprise to local business owners, Doug Sloan and John Stevens that she has made it this far.

"There was never a question as to whether or not Alexis would make it in the entertainment industry. The only question for us….was when" says Doug Sloan.

We caught up with Alexis, a Richmond Hill native to ask her, "How did you prepare for the audition?"

Alexis smiled and said, "The private coachings I had with John Stevens prior to auditioning really gave me a leg up. I don't believe I would have landed this role without his guidance. Also, there was something unique about this script. I felt connected to the characters immediately. As an actor, you try to not get to get too connected because you don’t want to set yourself up for failure. But there was just something about this project that spoke to me on many levels (pardon the pun!)."

We asked Alexis how she would describe her character, Ava. She told us, "Ava is strong-spirited and assertive. She's not afraid to speak her mind. She likes to be at the top of the social hierarchy for sure. But she also has a softer side, and that contrast is what really makes her character so real. She wears many masks and knows how to meld into any situation."

This is Alexis's feature film debut so we asked her about her experience.

"The best part about working on this film was that it was female-dominant and the female characters had such power and strength… even in adversity," replied the young debutante.

Level 16 has been in development for 10 years. Alexis credits Danishka for creating something so well thought out and brilliantly crafted.

Alexis's mother, Sahar says, "We won't go anywhere else for private coaching, the reason she booked this role was because of her training at Talent INC Canada".

Level 16 is set to premiere at select theatres across Canada later this year.

DinnerWear Jewelry takes broken antique china and turns it into beautiful necklaces, earrings, brooches and lariats

A bride puts on an earring at what was a vintage-themed wedding. The bridal party all wore earrings and bracelets from DinnerWear Jewelry.

Lariats are a popular DinnerWear Jewelry item because they’re adjustable, go easily over the head and one size fits all.

This Belleek Irish china piece in a sterling silver cuff bracelet is beautiful and unique — and it’s a keepsake.

Mary-Ann Wood painstakingly hand-crafts every DinnerWear Jewelry item she sells, using equipment like the drilling machine she’s working at here.

A woman turned her recently deceased grandmother’s teacups into pendant necklaces, which she gifted to her sisters as keepsakes.

For most people an antique china plate, cup or saucer that’s been chipped, cracked or broken might be trash. But for Mary-Ann Wood it’s treasure.

The jewelry pieces I craft aren’t just one-of-a-kinds and beautiful, they carry great sentimental value to the wearer. They are worn, shared and passed on. ”

— Mary-Ann Wood

FRANKLIN, MASS., UNITED STATES, April 16, 2018 / — FRANKLIN, Mass. – For most people an antique china plate, cup or saucer that’s been chipped, cracked or broken might be trash. But for Mary-Ann Wood it’s treasure. Wood is the owner of a business called DinnerWear Jewelry that uses designs cut from these fractured unfortunates and turns them into unique costume jewelry pieces, mostly necklaces, earrings, lariats and brooches.

“The jewelry pieces I craft aren’t just one-of-a-kinds and beautiful, they carry great sentimental value to the wearer,” Wood said. “They are worn, shared and passed on. The fact that each piece has been made by hand from a china piece that’s probably been in the family for years or even generations only makes it that much more special. It’s very gratifying for me and the customer.”

Wood works out of a spacious studio in Franklin, Mass., with hours by appointment, and is fast coming up on her 20th year in business, the last three of which have been dedicated full-time to DinnerWear Jewelry. Prior to that she split her time between jewelry design and the longtime family picture framing business, begun by her mother and father in 1968 and closed in 2015.

Now, she has a loyal following, mostly the result of the arts and crafts fairs and other events she attends in Massachusetts and elsewhere in the region. Her fan base will only get bigger with the launch of a website,, that’s attracting new business. An expanded menu now features alternative bridal bouquets and men’s jewelry, mainly tie tacks and cuff links.

The idea for repurposing old, degraded china pieces into lovely wearable jewelry (that is also often a family heirloom) is one that developed over time. “Many children are fascinated with fancy dinnerware and tea sets, and I was no exception,” Mary-Ann said. “I always wanted to help set the table for Sunday and holiday dinners with grandmother’s ‘best china’ and silver.”

It was then, as child, that she started her own personal collection of china. It should be noted that Mary-Ann grew up in a nurturing, art-filled environment. Her father, before he went into picture framing, was an engineer who helped build the New England Aquarium, among other projects. Her mother was a watercolorist who produced art and taught art classes at the framing studio.

Her father did work with leaded glass windows and passed on to his daughter an appreciation for glass and the skills to become an artisan. “Dad taught me how to solder at age 13,” Wood said. “He was quite the craftsman. He repurposed all the marbles at the aquarium, which had been installed in error, and re-sold them to the gift shop, where they were retailed as marine objects.”

Inspired by her father, Mary-Ann became a glass artist, a pastime she pursued on the side while helping run the picture framing business, but over time she found glasswork to be tedious and time-consuming. “Plus it was a crowded field,” she pointed out. “Everybody was making these wonderful mosaics and other glass creations. I wanted something new, but I didn’t know what.”

Wood was born with a keen eye for geometry and the way things fit together, as well as an appreciation for beautiful and artistic creations. “I’ve always been fascinated by working with tools, and I’ve always wanted to repurpose things,” she said. “I’d buy vintage clothing that was way too large, for example, and cut it down into something I could wear that had my stamp.”

So the interest and the talent was there from an early age, and it evolved over time with regard to her china collection. “In later years I started to play with cups and saucers in a different way,” she said. “I had a lot of broken pieces, and I hated the thought of just throwing them away. I wanted to do something with the pretty designs on them. That’s what led to my Eureka moment.”

Through much trial and error, Wood taught herself how to cut the plates, carving out the bits she liked most. Not satisfied with just making broken-looking shards, she concentrated on enhancing the intricate details of each pattern. “I was hooked on the challenge,” she said, but in the end, she was still just sitting there with lovely little designs cut from china. “Now what?” she wondered.

And so was born the idea of designing china pieces into wearable jewelry, in 1998. “My work has become more refined over the years, and my jewelry selection has grown,” she said. “I strive to add new items to the collection, keeping it fresh. I’m always hunting for new patterns. I look for variety in floral motifs and color themes and I try to represent as many countries as possible.”

The process of turning a chipped or cracked piece of china into a beautiful, wearable jewelry item is, understandably, a precise and painstaking task. It’s one that involves many tools, each one serving a specific purpose for cutting different materials. These include saws, grinders, files and drills. It’s slow and delicate work. Each piece is cleaned in-between steps of hand-carving.

Final detailing enhances each piece before it becomes jewelry. And then – voila! – the end result: a treasured piece of jewelry that the user can not only appreciate for its beauty and significance as a family heirloom, but actually wear, literally wrapping oneself in personal family history. “I call it bringing the past into the present,” Mary-Ann remarked, “and who can’t appreciate that?”

Wood said it took her about a year and a half to develop her own style, “the free-form carving of the shapes”, and she’s entirely self-taught. One of her first notions was to create mosaics, but she said there were thousands of artisans already doing it, plus she decided glass just wasn’t for her.

At any given time there are around 350 pieces in online inventory and inventory for shows. At times she runs across a teacup or cup and saucer that’s simply too beautiful and intact to cut. Those she offers for sale through an online business, Visitors to the site are then re-directed to Etsy, with whom she partners, to browse and make a purchase.

Mary-Ann does a lot of bridal and wedding parties. DinnerWear jewelry makes a great gift for the mother of the bride or an accent item pinned to the bride’s bouquet. She’s also ventured into custom bridal bouquets, an alternative to traditional fresh-cut flowers. Her bouquets have flowers fashioned from family china, carved from the floral patterns on the plates, often with a jewelry piece, pearl or crystal in the center.

Wood gets helpful assistance from her husband, Mark, who goes with her to the crafts fairs and shows, setting up and tearing down the DinnerWear Jewelry display booths. Caity, her right-hand assistant, has the technical know-how that’s led to a substantial Facebook following. She updates the website, social media and Etsy listings, helps with promotions and manages things while Mary-Ann’s away. A part-time helper, Lisa, helps out at fairs and shows and pitches in at the studio, on an as-needed basis. “I don’t know what I’d do without their support,” Wood said.

The prices for custom-made pieces are quite reasonable. They start at $78 for a pendant and $95 for earrings. “I use a lot of Swarovski crystal in my designs, so obviously the cost for those pieces is going to be higher,” Wood said. But when one stops to consider what they’re actually buying – a gorgeous family keepsake in the form of wearable jewelry – well, that’s priceless.

Kim Habibi Provides Tips For People Wanting To Find Rare Coins In Their Change

Apply these tips to your daily life and you might find a rare coin

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2018 / — There are always stories of unsuspecting people finding rare coins in their pocket change. These coins circulate through stores and sit in the pocket of people who don't know their high value. Kim Habibi wants everyone to keep an eye out for these coins, as they could change your life.

Plenty of these collectible and expensive coins are back in circulation. While a person grabs the change from the barista after receiving a coffee, they may not know they could be attaining a mini-fortune.

Kim Habibi has learned several tips over the years in finding these rare coins. While a person may never obtain one, a few simple tasks could become worthwhile.

First, Habibi says that everyone should keep their eyes wide open for error coins. These coins made by The United States Mint may become worth only a few dollars above face value. But some of the rarer off-metal errors can have higher worth.

These error coins could land the collector thousand of dollars.

Also, old coins are like a fine wine; the older the currency is, the more valuable it becomes. The only exception to this rule is if the coin is common. For example, a 1971 penny is over forty-years-old, but there are many still in circulation. The value of this coin would not be as much, if any higher, than other pennies that are rarer.

If a person looks at the date and assumes the coin is valuable because it's old, they may be disappointed. That's why it's crucial to distinguish between old and rare coins.

Another example is the 1909 Indian Head pennies. These coins are commonly passed down as family heirlooms and thought to be worth a fortune. However, these coins are worth less than $10 because hundreds of millions of them produced. The well-known currency is old, but not rare.

People should always become aware of double die coins. These are rare but do tend to find their way into circulation. At times, the doubling of the design is apparent, but other times a closer look is needed.

Training your eye to spot these doubled dies in rare form could result in high payouts. For example, a 1972 doubled-die penny could lead to a few hundred extra dollars to thousands. Depending on the condition, finding one of these could surprise the unsuspecting holder.

It's almost impossible to find a gold coin in circulation; it's not entirely improbable. The chances of finding a silver currency in distribution are undeniably higher. But collectors must know what they are scanning concerning their coins.

Becoming familiar with silver coins can assist in eyeing that rare piece. But everyone should become prepared to spend a lot of time and energy into finding these pieces in their pocket.

Another trick collectors may do to find some rare coins would be making a trip to their bank. Visiting their local bank and asking for coin rolls can lead to finding a rare coin. Often, the coin rolls contain error coins, silver coins, old coins, and miscellaneous coins that are valuable. Also, it's the cheapest route to take for a beginner. Banks will only charge you face value for the coin roll, and you can later return the unwanted coinage for the paper money.

If someone uses cash on a regular basis, he or she could have a high probability of attaining a rare coin. Habibi suggests someone using some of the above tips to start their collection. Also, training their eye to catch these mistakes or the date of coins can lead to a find.

While the more expensive coins are rare, they may not become entirely hidden in public eye. Finding one could lead to thousands of dollars.
