About Us

Aubergine Designs was started in 2004 by Barbara Brooks after numerous friends, relatives and work colleages admired her homemade jewellery - usually asking where they could buy it. So, what started as a keen passion and a hobby rapidly developed into a thriving jewellery business. 

At Aubergine Designs, you will find quality pieces of jewellery ranging from precious and semi-precious gemstone jewellery to silver and silver plated items. There are also some selected items from other sources that complement the Aubergine range. 


All Aubergine pieces are designed and handmade by Barbara in her studios and workshops in St Ives, Cambridgeshire and Brighton, East Sussex. Painstaking time and effort in selecting gemstones and her innovative design and very high standards of craftsmanship are the key to all the products available from Aubergine. 

Items are available directly from Aubergine Designs, from selected galleries around UK, many National Trust shops and here at www.aubergine-designs.co.uk
