How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I am a jewellery designer, I work with natural elements.....semi-precious stones, crystals, hand-made glass, I particularly love the beauty of pearls. Always hunting for something unusual to incorporate into my designs I love finding that special vintage accent. I do not have a rigid ‘style’, but am moved by the materials I find. Each piece is unique, I never design two the same.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist gives me the freedom to create something unique and beautiful, but also affordable. Every woman deserves to wear a special piece, and no neck should be naked !

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Christine Brackston, Jewellery & Textile Artist.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

Originally from Worcester I am new to the Hereford area, having lived in the USA for the last 30 years. Establishing myself during a pandemic has been impossible, so now is an exciting time. I create unique, affordable jewellery in the attic studio of my Victorian home. In the future I hope to organise ‘Wine and Design’ evenings enabling women to explore the creative process for themselves.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

My degree is actually in the scientific field, but design has always been my passion. I was fortunate to be able to draw on the talents of many different artists in my field to learn from. Other than that I am self taught !

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

Work shown in various galleries in the USA.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

Due to my recent move to this area and the current situation I hope to be featured in local independent shops and galleries soon.
