Justine is based in Squamish, Canada. The designer originally worked with ceramic pendants during her studies at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, but felt her calling to jewelry. She then enrolled in Vancouver Community College Jewellery Art and Design program to further her hands-on metalsmithing techniques. Justine knew that she would never be the "starving artist", it wasn’t in her blood. During her studies JB had already launched her own brand, showed at Vancouver Fashion week, and won “Western Livings Design of the Year Award – One to Watch” in 2010. JB is to have the perfect balance of creativity and business sense.
