About Brass Monkeys

Jewellers and silversmiths Samantha Maund and Jenifer Wall originally set up the aptly named Brass Monkeys in a freezing mechanic’s garage in February 2002. It quickly evolved into a busy, creative workshop with twelve makers, and became a popular venue on the Brighton Festival Art Trail.

Following its success, Samantha and Jenifer decided to relocate to warmer premises. They found an old second-hand furniture shop to renovate and transformed it into a delightful gallery, opening in December 2007, with workspaces for six resident makers.

Brass Monkeys has quickly established a reputation for selling beautiful, unusual and affordable hand made jewellery and metalwork by 50 established and emerging British designer-makers.

The antique cabinets and warm décor provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, allowing you to browse and try things on at your leisure. Whether you are looking for the perfect gift or would like to commission a special piece from our on-site workshop, there is expert advice on hand at all times to help you.

Brass Monkeys believes that beautiful and affordable jewellery should be part of everyday life.
