Solid Black Bear Earrings
Artist | Joseph Brinton | Portland, Oregon
Made in Oregon. Joe Brinton earned a B.F.A. in ceramics at Alfred University in upstate New York in 1982. After returning to Oregon, his interest in clay sculpture evolved into a passion for jewelry. After a few years as a designer for another company he successfully set out to sell his own works at arts festivals in the Northwest. Over time the business expanded into wholesale with the help of Marie Bliven, Joe's wife and creative collaborator. All Joseph Brinton jewelry is made at their studio in Portland.
