Donna Brennan

Donna Brennan PortraitDonna Brennan is a London based contemporary jeweller specialized in sculptural jewellery which blurs the line between fine jewellery and fine art. She holds a MA with Distinction in Goldsmithing from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London, awarded in 2010.

Her work typically features sculpturally wrapped rings hewn from 18ct Gold, clustered with an assemblage of precious stones and gems, fashioned to act as a beacon for the interplay of light.

The abundance of unique nature surrounding Brennan while growing up in her native Australia has proved to be an instrumental influence in her organic nature / artifice aesthetic.

In her new collection ‘Hortus Conclusus’, she has adopted a cross-disciplinary approach to photography and sculptural jewellery, crafting a narrative from image to object.
She has explored the materiality of a 2D image by adding an embellished 3D dimension, a brooch, which has been extracted and crafted - or 'borrowed' from the photographic image upon which it is mounted.

Brennan’s work sits in the collections of the V & A Museum, London, the Museum of Contemporary Art (SM’s) ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, and the prestigious Alice & Louis Koch Collection, National Museum, Switzerland, among others. Her work has also been recognized through a prestigious Australia Council Award for the Arts.
