Nina Bradley Designs - About



Nina Bradley Designs, Unique Handmade Jewellery

Nina graduated from Middlesex University in 1976 and began her career working in Tony Laws Studio Gallery in Covent Garden, London.

Two years later she set up her own workshop and exhibited in Cecilia Coleman Gallery, Casson Gallery and Argenta in London and Bluecoat Display Centre in Liverpool.

In 1989 Nina moved to live in the Algarve, Portugal and has worked there as a professional maker since. For the past ten years she has been an active member of a designer makers co-operative in Alvor, a small tourist town, where they run a successful retail outlet.

She is also a member of the Associacao Dos Artesaos do Algarve who organise exhibitions throughout the region and personally she has held regular exhibitions in the Armazen Regimental in Lagos and at Caldas de Monchique.

Her working experiences in Portugal have led her to develop a wide range of styles from exclusive "one off" pieces to the more fashion conscious.

To produce original work for all markets has proved to be an exciting challenge.

" I have a love and fascination of semi precious stones which feature in a lot of my work. The stones themselves often influence the design and outcome of the piece. My imagination is fed by the beautiful unspoilt nature which surrounds me here and I am intrigued by the idea of jewellery as totem."
