Bree Richey was born into a family of artists and found her own affinity for art at a young age exploring the worlds of sculpture and drawing. Come college, she attended the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts and was drawn into the jewelry studio where she discovered her love for the craft.
Richey continued her education at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, and apprenticed with jewelry designers Conni Mainne and Jayne Redman.
Richey’s jewelry collection pulls directly from her Scandinavian background and love for Art Deco and modern architectural design. She often finds inspiration for her work in the clean lines of modern furniture, the fluid pattern of fabric, and the vibrant color of fine gems and pearls. All of these elements are apparent in her work, where metal forms and an array of colored gems are brought together seamlessly to create elegant and highly wearable jewelry.
Her jewelry can be found in galleries across the country. She also has collections in museums such as: The Guggenheim Museum in New York City, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, The Decordova Museum in Concord, MA, The Falling Water Museum in Pennsylvania, The Kennedy Center in WADC as well as many other museums across the country.
