In the lead up to our Summer Pop-Up event on the 10th of June we asked our artists and makers a few questions in order to gain an insight into their practices. Birgitte Bruun is the artist in the spotlight for this post. Birgitte’s clean, beautifully simple jewellery designs are handcrafted from silver, and will be available to buy at the Pop-Up event – so come and see them for yourself.
Describe your work in three words:
Contemporary, timeless, elegant.
Why is ‘handmade’ so important to you?
Handmade pieces of jewellery have the makers creativity and skills reflected in the final piece.
What’s the best part of making what you do? And the worst?
The best part is seeing someone appreciating and wearing something you have made, the worst when ideas don’t translate to a finished piece as you imagined they would.
What will you be selling at our Eclectic Mix pop up event on 10th June?
Where do you get your inspiration?
I’m inspired by Scandinavian Design ethos and like to make timeless, simple designs.
