About Jude & the Blackberry Forge…
Jude Berry is a blacksmith and jewellery smith based in Hertfordshire. He specialises in pattern welding, experimenting with different metals, patterns and techniques to further develop the craft. Jude has long been interested in the designs and unusual techniques of pattern welding, a craft that goes back thousands of years. He is particularly drawn to the organic and beautiful forms it creates.
Each piece of pattern welding is different to every other. This makes it particularly popular for wedding rings which can be formed from the same stock, creating a unique pair of matching rings.
Jude also works iron to make more conventional blacksmith pieces, including sconces, gates and garden sculptures.
