Shauna Burke

Shauna Blythe Burke

"As an NYC-based designer, I find that my work reflects the industrial landscape around me. My jewelry is often textural in nature, and it might be influenced by a sewer grate or an Art Deco image that I notice in the radiator of a Midtown building."

Shauna Blythe Burke is an artist and an art teacher. She has lived and taught in New York and in Florence, Italy. Her jewelry is inspired by the classic teachings of her time in Italy and by the urban environment that she calls her home.

All of Shauna Burke's jewelry is hand wrought in sterling silver and gold in her Brooklyn studio. The art of the handmade is of the utmost importance to Shauna, and her jewelry shows the subtleties of the handmade.

Shauna Burke holds an MSED in Art Education from Pratt Institute. She has been designing and making hand-fabricated jewelry since the age of 14. She began her studies at Studio Jewelers, a jewelry school in NYC, and then went on to study and teach metalsmithing in Florence, Italy.
