Hi! I'm Freya O'Brien, a British jeweler and jewelry designer, currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Since I was a little girl, helping my grandmother on her jewelry craft stall, I've been obsessed with all things that glitter and sparkle. I've built a successful career in finance, both in London and New York, but have always been drawn to the creative arts and jewelry design. Taking some short courses at Central St Martins, London in 2006 inspired me to explore design further, and I studied at private jewelry schools in Manhattan, New York, following which I launched my own line.
I consider jewelry design to be unique, as it sits at the crossover of many disciplines, including design, sculpture and fashion. Its history is varied and beautiful, and I continue to learn and be inspired both by the past and by the wonderful people and jewelers I have met. My jewelry is inspired by the patterns and geometry I see in the world around me, as well as the clean lines and proportions of modern design and architecture. I hope you find my jewelry as beautiful and inspirational as the passion I have for the field.
