Fine Art Jewellery
Donna Brennan is a Fine Art Jeweller who established her eponymous brand in 1995. Hand-crafting unique, sculptural jewellery from her studio in London, her jewellery is a trove of tradition with a contemporary twist. Her ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ aesthetic typically features sinuous, organic forms hewn from 18ct Gold, clustered with an assemblage of precious or semi-precious stones.
Brennan’s work traverses the dichotomies of nature and artifice, of fine and applied art. Recent work, developed for ‘COLLECT’ at the Saatchi Gallery,incorporated her photography for the 1st time. It explored the materiality of a 2D image by adding an embellished 3D wearable sculptural dimension, which was extracted and crafted – or ‘borrowed’ from the photographic image upon which it is mounted, alluding to ‘shakkei’, the Asian landscaping term referring to the notion of ‘borrowed scenery’.
A gallery space, designed by award winning London architects, is attached to her studio and provides a welcoming space to showcase her work and discuss commissions with clients, by appointment.
