Franca Berr is a London-based jewellery designer and maker and is known for her edgy, humorous aesthetic that draws inspiration from classic costume jewellery and contemporary, popular, cultural icons.
Berr's new 'Stillabunt' collection of jewellery embodies sculptural character, with a nod to the work of artists Philip Guston and George Condo. Utilising quirky forms and vivid colours this is jewellery intended to be worn by bold, fun-loving spirits.
Each piece is made to order from her workshop in Hackney, East London.
On completing an apprenticeship as a goldsmith in her native Germany she moved to England to study jewellery design at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design. After graduating she designed fashion show pieces for influential designers including John Richmond, Dai Rees, Markus Lupfer and Michael van der Ham.
Berr has also collaborated with Liberty and TopMan.
