Bear Brooksbank


Bear is a British fine jewellery designer, born and bred in North Yorkshire. Since early childhood Bear has always been spellbound by the idea that precious materials come from the earth. Having trained as an actress and spent time working in a contemporary art gallery, Bear came back to her first love. She cut her craft working for highly respected jewellery dealer, Humphrey Butler in Mayfair. At the same time she trained to be a gemologist and designer at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), graduating in 2009. Bear has now been in the jewellery business for over a decade.

Bear established her eponymous brand in East London in 2012. Bear Brooksbank specialises in bespoke and commission based projects whilst also holding a collection of fine jewellery pieces available to buy.

Collections include Satellite, Monochrome, a curated selection of Antique and Vintage jewelleryFur & Claw for Humphrey Butler, and the signature Bear pendant.

With her early influence being predominantly in antique jewellery, Bear draws inspiration from treasures of the past and creates timeless contemporary masterpieces that are equally relevant to today.
