Jenny Llewellyn

Jenny Llewellyn is an award winning, contemporary jewellery designer-maker based in London. Originally studying at Leeds College of Art & Design (2003-2004), Jenny then specialised in Jewellery at Middlesex University (2004-2007). Inspired by the luminous colours, shapes and movement of underwater life, Jenny’s work is characterised by handcrafted, organic forms of precious metals combined with vibrant bursts of silicone. Jenny’s practice is driven by experimentation. Experimentation with colour and experimentation with material; combining precious with non-precious to create tactile and fun pieces available in the full spectrum of colours from discreet pops of monochrome to full statement colour-fades. Central to Jenny’s practice is her pioneering use of silicone. Often mistaken for glass or plastic, silicone is surprisingly soft, light and durable, resulting in unique and wearable contemporary jewellery design – a celebration of colour. Jenny exhibits both nationally and internationally and has won numerous awards including the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in 2014.
