Meet designer Justine Brooks

Wholesale Seller

What sparked your passion for jewelry design and where do you draw your inspiration from? 

“In 2005 I had my first hands-on experience with metal when studying traditional jewelry techniques in India, based in a small Himalayan town called Manali. I first started my art degree majoring in ceramics, but slowly made the transition to jewelry after several bead buying trips to Asia.”

Embarking on a nine month epic solo throughout the Middle East, East Africa and Asia; Justine’s passion for researching stones, metal techniques, and design is obvious. The designer is continually creating opportunities to explore different countries in search of learning more about jewelry from around the world. Justine was invited to attend Santander Fashion Week 2008 in Colombia.

“My Silver Earth Collection is heavily inspired by mother nature. I cast actual organic objects such as cedar, starfish, and raven skulls to get exact replicas. I like in Whistler, a world class ski resort town, where I am surrounded by my natural inspiration.”

You were awarded “Designer of the Year” by Western Living Magazine. How does an emerging designer get awarded such an impressive title? 

“I am continually focusing on the same goal, which allows me to see a lot of progress. I literally live and breathe jewelry each day. Being a jewelry designer allows me to combine my passion for fashion & travel in one. I love being my own boss and I could not imagine it any other way.”

Can you give us a taste of what you are preparing for your next collection?

“The spring collection 2014 is just receiving the finishing touches. Think dreamcatchers, butterflies, and miniature wishbone pendants. The JB rocks collection will be muted summer tones, with lots of sparkles and textures.”

Thank you Justine!
