Jessica is an artist jeweller based in Edinburgh. After graduating with a 1st Class Hons in Jewellery & Metal Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2011 she then set up her own creative practise. Jessica is in residence at SilverHub Studios a thriving community of jewellery and silversmith designers. She exhibits regularly and has received several awards, the most recent being the Visual Artists and Craft Makers Award from Edinburgh City Council and Creative Scotland 2017.
Specialising in vitreous enamelling allows Jessica to express her love of colour and pattern within contemporary jewellery making. Drawing and painting has always been an integral aspect of Jessica’s creative process which is reflected within her jewellery pieces.
Alongside her studio practice Jessica teaches this craft to a wide range of people from total beginners to the more advanced maker. She believes the process of making can provide a transformative experience for a person which has led her to undertaking a Masters in Adult Education, Community Development and Youth Work at the University of Glasgow to inform her practise even further.
