Trubridge turns his hand to jewellery

As if dominating the local furniture design scene wasn't enough, David Trubridge is now branching out into jewellery.

His first collection, 'Adorn', extends his signature plywood pendant aesthetic into earrings, pendants, and brooches.

There are three designs: Koura, Flax and Wing.

"From a distance at night," he says, "our lights can appear like sparkling jewels. So here they are in miniature."
