Having studied Jewellery and Silversmithing for 5 years at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, Kirsty Bridgewater went on to work within the fine jewellery industry within Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
Through exploration of materials, I developed an innovative range of jewellery and fashion accessories from neoprene, winning Top Draw’s ‘Best Fashion Product’ at Earls Court, London in 2010 (under the name Kirsty Davies).
Following on from her journey into fashion, Kirsty learned that sustainability and longevity of pieces were key to her design ethos. Upon moving back to her home town St Ives, she embarked on a new chapter of her jewellery making career using precious metals and gemstones.
Making and selling from her workshop in the Sloop Studios, you can also find Kirsty at her contemporary, design-led jewellery shop in Bedford Road and selected artisan craft fairs/markets.
