David Bowie, Hugh Jackman, Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry, Jane Fonda, AC/DC, Prince, Miley Cyrus and The Rolling Stones are just a handful of world renowned stars publicist Kerry O’Brien has worked with.
Over a career spanning more than 20 years fronting KOBPR in the world of showbiz, Kerry has found yet another outlet for her creativity and launched BijouGem, a bespoke, artisan jewellery business.
Her love of jewellery began when Kerry’s much adored mum Mary gave semi-precious gems as a gift to her precious little girl many years ago.
A trip to Rajasthan in 2000 was like all her dreams had come true and convinced Kerry she should delve into the world of jewellery design and retail. She has now extended her client reach in entertainment to include those with a discerning eye in jewellery.
The BijouGem range is designed by Kerry and hand-crafted in Rajasthan. It features semi-precious gemstones such as Garnet, Green Onyx, Black Onyx, Lapis, Smoky Quarts, Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Iolite, Labradorite, Malachite and many more.
“Running the two businesses, BijouGem and KOBPR, can be a challenge at times but both are incredibly exciting industries,” Kerry said.
“Designing and producing jewellery is a passion project that allows me to be creative, and it is something I will continue to do alongside my PR business. As long as my customers want to wear my designs, I will keep producing them.”
“A little bit of bling always makes me feel happy.” Kerry said.
