One-of-a-Kind Statement Pieces of Wearable Art 

About Designer Carolyn Bruce

Carolyn Bruce is a mixed multi-media artisan.
Born and raised in New Zealand she studied industrial and interior design and is now living and working in Vancouver BC, Canada.
Carolyn is a self-taught jeweller working with base metal findings, glass and semi-precious beads.
Her endeavour as an artist is to take beads and findings and then present them in new and unexpected ways.
Her pieces are complex in construction and interact with the wearer's movements.
Carolyn's latest jewelry collections are an ever evolving adventure into the world of Steampunk Madness, SciFi and Victoriana and are an eclectic compilation of new and found objects. Carolyn enjoys the way fashion art and materials merge together.
Jewelry is a personal form of expression and the more her work evolves the more freely she feels she can express herself with confidence.
As she says, "Inspiration is everywhere… one only needs to touch something and the process starts automatically… often at an alarming speed! I love making my work unique and fun… and making YOU stand out!
