Brian Adam is a very experienced jeweller based in Auckland where he creates from his home studio.
“I delight in making jewellery with materials like silver, stone, gold, and steel and I'm fairly low-tech about it, meaning I use ancient ways with contemporary tricks. I use hand technology and make helpful tools from old car parts and railway sleepers. Maybe there's a sustainability sticker I could go for. Also I teach jewellery in our studio (which I call "Bush Jewellery") to encourage kids and professionals alike to be creative in metals and use lateral thinking with their ideas. To sum up, I try to make pleasing shapes into wearable and durable jewellery.”
