A former landscape architect, my work is heavily influenced by my experience of growing up by the beach on a Mediterranean island, and my consequent love of nature. Using pebbles and shell fragments collected on my favourite beach, and twigs and botanical elements discovered on weekend walks, I have been creating jewellery that sparks a deep emotional reaction, and a desire to own one of my creations.
The unique aspect of Brandts Jewellery is the fact that, although inspired by nature, each piece is carefully honed, sculpted and hand polished to produce a piece that is not an exact copy, but an idealised version of nature. The resulting jewellery is understated, sublimely beautiful, sometimes edgy, but always wearable. I am obsessive about detail and strive to achieve the ideal balance between form and function. With collections spanning a range including statement necklaces, and bangles to stacking rings and friendship bracelets, my creations are contemporary and understated, and very accesible.
