Meet the Maker
Jean Burgers creates intricate wearable artworks inspired by Sacred Geometry and ancient symbols.
Jean uses traditional metalsmith techniques to create her jewellery, and cuts all of her metal designs by hand using a piercing saw. Her passion for environmental sustainability is an integral part of her jewellery business. All of the stone and wood is ethically sourced and she works with recycled materials wherever possible.
Her aim is to create unique talismanic artifacts, imbued with symbolism, which are then added to by the sentiment of the wearer.
She has been making jewellery since 2002, when she learnt from master carver Chris Bone in Golden Bay, New Zealand. Her creations are displayed in galleries throughout the world. They are also available to purchase here in her Online Store.
All designs are handcut, carved and polished, making each piece a unique work of art.
