Jessica Turrell Necklace

About Jessica Turrell

Jessica Turrell trained in jewellery and enamel at Central School of Art, London. After graduation, she established a studio in Bristol, England, and now divides her time between studio practice and teaching. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Building on her training in traditional enamelling techniques Jessica has developed a more unconventional approach to enamel which is underpinned by ongoing research into mark making techniques. 

Jessica works with vitreous enamel to create surfaces produced through repetitive mark-making processes. The miniaturized format of the jewellery form allows Jessica to explore her ideas on an intimate scale and her aim is to create jewellery that rewards close attention with an intricate and detailed surface. 
 
Deliberately rejecting enamel’s more conventional characteristics of shine and colour in favour of a more nuanced and ambiguous surface, Jessica has developed new ways of working with it that gives the jewellery a particular tactile delicacy.
