Justine’s passion for researching stones, metal techniques, and design was sparked on a nine-month epic solo trip throughout the Middle East, East Africa, and Asia. She had her first hands-on experience with metal when studying traditional jewellery techniques in a small Himalayan village called Manali in India. Justine is one of those travellers who feels at home when on the other side of the world. The designer believes the ability to explore other cultures is the greatest gift of life. Raw, natural yet precious qualities give Justine Brooks' jewelry its signature look.
