Gill Benzion is a woodworker and jeweler who creates unique pieces in his Vancouver studio. Born in Montreal to immigrant parents, Gill grew up surrounded by a culture he struggled to identify with. Knowing he was different from a young age, Gill rejected the expectations placed upon him by both his family and the society around him by forgoing a typical career path in favor of experimentation and exploration. Those explorations led to studies in electrical engineering, business, music, personal training, cabinetmaking, and design, not to mention extensive travel, and a lot of skydiving. Along the way Gill fell in love with woodworking, particularly small-scale projects. As a result, Gill established Ébéniste Jewellery in 2008, and never looked back. While it took some time, Gill eventually came to terms with his mental health struggles and sought help. Gill is now in the process of launching a nonprofit which aims to raise funds for mental health initiatives, all while maintaining his jewellery studio, located on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. A portion of the proceeds from every Ébéniste Jewellery sale directly funds Gill’s nonprofit; Heavy Metal Rings (www.heavymetalrings.org).
