Jocelyn’s individually designed and hand crafted work draws upon natural forms such as entwined creepers, rock formations, running water, and the coast. She has also been inspired by Bronze age jewellery, especially some twisted spiral torcs.
Her experience ranges from Blacksmithing to stained glass, and Keum Boo, the Korean art of applying gold leaf to silver. Jocelyn enjoys experimenting with ideas and materials, trying out new techniques, and problem solving.
She uses a variety of techniques and materials, typically fine and argentium silver, 18ct gold, keum boo, stained glass, texture and patination, and a variety of stones. Ever keen to experiment, she is always interested in trying new materials, such as acetate and other plastics, metals, found materials and wood.
