Simone Brewster

British designer Simone Brewster graduated from the Royal College of Art’s famed Design Products graduate program and founded her own London studio in 2008. But in addition to making furniture and objects and exhibiting them with the all-female design collective Flock — of which she’s a founding member — she has her own line of handmade wood-and-metal jewelry that shares many of the same influences: strong architectural and geometric forms, African woodworking, Zulu beadwork, her own Caribbean background, and the work of artists like Vermeer, Warhol, and Edward Burtynsky. Brewster’s jewelry has been sold at boutiques like Darkroom, and in 2010, she was asked to create a special collection for the Tate. Her pieces for Sight Unseen are all one-of-a-kind.
