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 & Design in 2011, she then went on to establish her creative practice.
Jessica regularly exhibits and has received several awards, including the Visual Artists and Craft Makers Award from Edinburgh City Council and Creative Scotland 2017 and the ITAC International Teaching Artist travel bursary 2018.
Specialising in enamelling, allows Jessica to experiment with colour and pattern within a jewellery making context. Combining previous training in textiles and floristry, surface design and colour has always been an integral aspect of Jessica’s process. These creative influences are reflected within her pieces.
Jessica is a member of Applied Arts Scotland & the British Society of Enamellers.
Out-with her studio practice Jessica teaches this discipline 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 practice even further. Alongside evening and day classes, Jessica teaches on the foundation in jewellery making at Silverhub Studios alongside fellow maker Lisa Arnott.
