Bronwen makes wearable, sculptural jewellery from materials used in the construction industry such as concrete, steel, plastic and MDF. The shapes she uses reference those of objects worn down by the sea and allude to the fact that these non-biodegradable materials will be washing up on our beaches for many years to come.
Bronwen’s previous job involved commissioning art and working with architects on the interior design of new healthcare buildings. These buildings used materials such as PVC and cement .These were the materials that made the hospitals safe and easy to clean but they also gave them the institutional feel that as an artist and designer
she fought against. Bronwen experimented with these materials developing new surfaces, material combinations and finally wearable objects that draw on her experience and skills as a jewellery and her interest in using non-precious, recycled materials.
