Penelope Brittain is a Contemporary Jeweller with a preoccupation for plants. From an early age, she would spend hours pressing flowers, making daisy chains and embroidering flowers on to almost anything she could find. Penelope is particularly inspired by native Australian plants and succulents and often uses these as a motif to explore conceptual ideas about the ephemeral beauty in life and nature. 

She has studied Fashion & Textile Design and Jewellery Design, graduating with Distinction in 2015. Her pieces are hand crafted from start to finish using metal smithing and hand embroidery techniques. Each piece is designed to be a beautiful object and treasured keepsake.
