Before the runway, and satisfying costumers with her one of a kind designs, Gillian Berry graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Fine Arts with a Focus in Fashion Design from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. At NSCAD Gillian was able to explore many artistic avenues including drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, textiles and fashion design. This artistic background influences her concepts, creative esthetic and practice as a designer today. Gillian sees herself first and foremost as an artist who has chosen fashion design as her vessel for creativity. The philosophy Gillian brings to her designs, is that fashion is the pinnacle point of art and function becoming one. Gillian enjoys the creativity and challenge of sculpting fabrics to create body, flow, and texture. What makes her work different than many designers is her training and background in fine arts. Since graduation, Gillian has gotten married, traveled and been designing small scale clothing and jewellery collections and customized pieces.
Gillian Berry is a very imaginative and experimental designer. She creates her work at a very soulful level, making her pieces captivating. The positive and imaginative spirit that the pieces are made in, reflect through the person wearing them. She is an artist passionate for accentuating the freedom and natural beauty inside each of us.

Gillian Hannah Berry
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Fashion And Jewellery Design
Gillian is an artist based out of Halifax, NS. After successfully pioneering and operating her own business designing jewelry Gillian is now combining skills learned in owning her own business, with her passion & creative education in fashion design
Gillian Hannah Berry jewelery designs range from unique and simple, to whimsical and bold statement pieces. The styles vary, and are always on the cusp of new fashion. Gillian Hannah Berry jewelery seeks to emphasize the freedom and natural beauty inside each of us.
The Jewelery is hand crafted using antique natural, and often recycled materials. These materials include but are not limited to: wire, crystals, glass, leather, fabric, and birch bark. The materials used are given new meaning when they become a part of both a sculptural and wearable jewelery design. Stones and crystals are uniquely wrapped using sterling silver-plated or or gold-plated wire. Other materials, such as leather, include etchings that echo the pure organic designs found in nature. While related explorations are evident throughout my work, each piece is as unique as the next.
I like to transform the ordinary into something spectacular that can be a wearable inspiration wherever you go. I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoy creating them! It is a great pleasure for me to see others enjoy the beauty that grows out of the dedication and care that I put into my designs.
Thank you for your interest in Gillian Hannah Berry Designs!
Have a beautiful day!
