Biography

Award-winning Jeweller Donna Barry has been designing bespoke jewellery pieces for over 10 years. She trained at the Edinburgh College of Art in 2001, later acquiring her Postgraduate Diploma in 2002 whilst working at the Jewellery and Silversmith Department. She was awarded a grant from the Deutsche Bank Awards at her Post Graduate Show, subsequently funding her studio space in Leith where she still works now. Working with silver, gold and a variety of semi-precious stones, she applies her customised technique to produce silver, textured shapes. Utilising her previous expertise and knowledge working as a florist, she creates flora and fauna inspired pieces that explore repetition and pattern in nature.

Donna has also produced bespoke pieces for shops and galleries across the UK, and abroad as far as Japan and America.
