Helen is a self-taught Goldsmith, having studied a BA(Hons) in Design Crafts at Hereford College of Arts. Graduating in 1999 and subsequently launching ‘Helen Brice Designs’, her mixed-media background allows her to approach jewellery design from a somewhat unorthodox perspective. Preferring to create new work at the bench, rather than in a sketchbook, she often designs for a specific gemstone or setting.

Over the years she has become progressively attracted to creating jewellery which is emotionally significant to her customers, frequently remodeling their own or inherited jewellery with feature sentimental gemstones, or working to commission to create special, bespoke heirloom pieces for her clients.
