A little bit about Jenny....
Jenny Llewellyn is a London based contemporary jewellery designer-maker. Vibrant, fluid and experimental, Jenny’s practice is an exploration of colour.
Initially inspired by the luminous colours, shapes and movement of creatures from the deep sea, Jenny’s practice has become increasingly design and process led. Her collections are characterised by handcrafted, organic forms of precious metals, combined with vibrant bursts of silicone, Jenny explores the possibilities of her materials to create works that, after their initial visual impact, captivate through high attention to detail and strong awareness of design.
It isn’t glass or plastic, hard or fragile, delicate or heavy. Jenny Llewellyn’s sculptural jewellery pays equal attention to form and tactility, resulting in unique and wearable contemporary jewellery design. A celebration of colour!
