‘I have always loved ancient jewellery. That an object can be thousands of years old and still be as breath-taking as when it was first made excites and inspires me in my work. The fact that I’m skilled in an ancient craft is pretty magical to me. I find this connection to Goldsmiths from the past incredible.
As with all of my jewellery I see the pieces I make as artefacts of the future. It is very meaningful to me that each piece I create is ‘one of a kind’, a personal treasure that speaks to the wearer when they discover it, and that will be handed down through the generations’ – Katherine Alexandra Brunacci – Founder.
