Bridget Kennedy's jewellery combines diverse, non-precious and organic materials with traditionally precious materials creating an ongoing enquiry into environmental fragility, impermanence, choice and value.
Her early childhood was spent in Fiji and the South Pacific and she has cultural ties to the Philippines through her life partner. These influences and exchanges have greatly informed her practice.
Bridget is co-director of Studio 20/17, a contemporary jewellery gallery that opened in 2008 in Sydney and has recently completed a coursework Masters in Studio Art at Sydney College of the Arts.
