Trevor Byron was born in Palmerston North. He studied jewellery through the Open Polytechnic and later at Whitireia Polytechnic, graduating with a Diploma in Craft Design in 1998.
Trevor Byron works from his secluded workshop in the countryside near Wellington. His unique and somewhat humorous take on life shows in his quirky brooches, and his love of nature is evident in his flower-based earrings and brooches.
Trevor works mainly in silver, with touches of enamel, occasionally incorporating coins and small plastic figures.
