Using jet from a mine in Whitby on the English coastline where it has been highly prized since the Romans ruled the British isles, Jacqueline creates black jewelry that’s far from basic.
Jet is a form of fossilized wood that can be easily carved into all kinds of shapes. Jacqueline, however, prefers a more organic approach.
Many of her pieces appear to have been eroded and weathered through the centuries as seen in these disc earrings. She accents her pieces with another ancient goldsmithing technique, granulation or small bead-like textures. View the collection.
