Brad Bird

Brad BirdDrawing and making have been part of Brad’s life since childhood, a passion that has found small-scale expression in jewellery making and design.

Brad studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Gold and Silversmithing) at RMIT, before honing his technical skills through hands-on learning in the commercial jewellery trade. Brad believes technical mastery plays an important role in unlocking creativity, allowing unhindered expression and the concrete realisation of concept.

Brad’s work is deeply inspired by German elements of design, reducing an idea to its simplest form and communicating through clean, clear lines. Linear elements and sculptural forms belie an unexpected complexity: closer examination reveals subtly varied dimensions, offset stones and quiet textural contrast. Working with gold and gems, Brad’s work exhibits a seamless quality enhanced by a considered attention to colour and finish.
