Shore Thing

Cast from found beach stones, Johanna Brierley's sterling silver and 18 karat yellow gold earrings preserve some of the ocean's natural treasures. This piece began when the artist found the original stones on the beaches of Gimli in Manitoba, Canada, where she spent her childhood summers. The roiling sea polished these pebbles smooth over time, and each organically beautiful pair of earrings features lustrous metal casts of the original stones that were uniquely weathered by the waves. Handmade in Canada.

Johanna's fascination with jewellery can be traced back to a childhood spent rummaging through her grandmother's jewellery chest. From an early age, she developed an enthusiasm for found objects and a curiosity about the various ways in which an object worn on a body interacts with the body itself. Whether she is discovering shiny, unusual shapes of stone along a beach or scouring antique markets for objects with a unique past, Johanna's work is informed by her passion for collecting and eye for the exceptional and unexpected. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Johanna graduated from the University of Manitoba with a degree in English. She then spent three years studying for a Diploma of Jewellery Arts at George Brown College in Toronto. Afterwards, she obtains a Master of Arts in English from McGill University in Montreal, her research focusing on found poetry and the relationship between words and their function as objects. Once her formal education was complete, Johanna embarked on a career in the jewellery industry. Since registering her business in 2007, Johanna Brierley jewellery design is becoming more and more recognized for unique and timeless pieces of jewellery inspired by lucky stones. For generations, Johanna's family has been collecting stones with natural holes because hole stones are believed to be symbols of good luck.
