A Canadian jewellery designer and goldsmith, Berkeley Brown graduated from NSCAD University in 2009 with a major in jewellery design and metalsmithing. After graduating, Berkeley moved to Glasgow, Scotland where she completed an artist in residency at the Glasgow School of Art and gained professional experience working for a local jewellery designer and gallery, Brazen Studios. Berkeley is currently working as an independent jeweller in Halifax, Nova Scotia in addition to her position as a technician in the NSCAD Jewellery Department.
Berkeley’s work is inspired by her love of jewellery’s potential for precise movement and interaction, in combination with an interest in the traditions, passion and aesthetics involved with baking, food preparation and cooking utensils. Making everything by hand at her bench, Berkeley works with silver, gold and gemstones. Clean lines and elegant movement explore the intersection between function and adornment to bring you a unique and wearable piece of jewellery.
