About Ruth Brown

As an independent jewellery designer/ maker, Ruth is dedicated and motivated to succeed. Establishing a successful online presence through the portrayal of a coherent brand identity; creation of a website with fully integrated e-commerce; email campaigns; and a continuous social media image have successfully contributed to the development of her business. She exhibits her work internationally, and a passion for contemporary design has led me to organise and curate several pop ups across the country. Strong communication skills have been essential in engaging with the public, and developing working relationships with potential customers, gallerists, and collaborators.
