Intro
Breana Ferrara is a jeweler, metalsmith, and maker of excessive body adornment at her home studio in Fitchburg, MA. Breana moved to Fitchburg from Boston after graduating with her BFA in Fine Arts 3D with a concentration in Jewelry/Metalsmithing from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, where she was nominated for the Windgate Fellowship in 2017. In her jewelry Breana uses fiber techniques such as bead embroidery, bead weaving, lace-making, sewing, and crochet along with traditional metalsmithing like repousse, enameling, and stone setting, to make pieces that are gluttonous, decadent, sensual, and excessive all at the same time. Common themes explored in her body of work include shame, hedonism, relationships, sexuality, and connection. When Breana isn't creating her own jewelry, she teaches workshops around New England and works as a studio assistant to other artists. Recently, Breana was accepted into New York Jewelry Week’s One for the Future program.
