About

Brett Barker designs  creates and manufactures ,  all my own Silver and Gold Jewellery ; which he has been doing for over twenty years , he does not normally refer to himself in the third person   ; )

I trained in Art Education , teaching in High Schools in Western Australia .
I originally worked in the fields of Painting , Pottery and Serigraphy , I then moved into creating jewellery with his brother Leigh , designing and manufacturing all their own unique pieces .
