Designer Interview: Good Daughter

By jade

g3 Designer Interview: Good Daughter

Good Daughter was recommended to me by my fab friend Ms. G., and upon my first visit to Good Daughter’s site, I was hooked. Her jewelry is delicate with an oh-so-slight edge; they’re the kind of pieces that you could stack to infinity, or wear confidently alone. And the designer Brooke, is a lady after my own heart – “If it makes you happy to pile on all of your jewelry and wear a questionable outfit, cool!” Also her new collection’s going to include some indian chief motifs and devil heads. Yes, please.

How long have you been designing jewelry?

When I in college at NYU my boyfriend (at the time) and I found this charm store and began making our own necklaces. We made them for ourselves and as gifts, and then began selling them on consignment to a shop in the East Village. It was excruciating making orders for the store because they kept selling out and were ordering like 30 pieces at a time. Assembling these intricate charm necklaces with tons of components by hand was a nightmare. After about a year the enterprise fell apart. This was nearly 10 years ago and I took a long hiatus from any kind of jewelry making until about 2010. While working full time at a job here in Los Angeles, I started taking metal smithing night classes at UCLA. It was this really intense experience trying to learn how to make jewelry after a 9 hour work day. We made everything from scratch. I mean we were given this hunk of silver and from that had to make wire, sheets, tubing, jump rings ect. We eventually used our handmade materials to make a ring and a spider web pendant. Soon after I was able to quit my job and move to North Carolina to study jewelry making at The Penland School of Crafts with this amazing jewelry artist, Jim Meyer. After Penland I went to San Francisco to continue honing my skills at the Revere Academy which is where I worked with gold for the first time, and I fell in love with it.

What drew you to the world of jewelry?

Strangely enough, I never really wore jewelry before I started making my own. Every time I tried, I felt fraudulent, like the piece of jewelry was wearing me and not the other way around. That being said, I love glamour and creating narratives with my own style, so I wanted to make my own. Forming metal into jewelry has a kind of superhero quality to me. I also love ancient knowledge, and the history of body adornment fits nicely into that category of philosophy and craft.

Is this your full-time job? If so, when did you make the leap?

I began working on Good Daughter full time in late 2013. After some pretty transformational experiences and amazing teachers I began to believe in my >> READ MORE <<

SHOULDER PAD-GUARDS – mixed plastics, hardware

BARNACLES – screws, chain, gemstones, hardware findings

According to Hur, “There is potential in common, everyday objects! I see beauty in simple materials like office supplies and hardware…I carefully construct three-dimensional pieces in order to explore placement and interaction with the human body. As a jewelry maker and designer, I am excited to push the boundaries of wearability in contemporary fashion by creating “post-apocalyptic” looking jewelry that is not quite for everyday use” (via).
