Biography:

Jacks is one of the UK's top emerging talents in contemporary jewellery design. Having completed a BA Hons in jewellery in the mid-1990s, she went to work for a top name in the jewellery design industry for eight years before launching her first independent collection.

Working primarily in 18ct gold and platinum, Jacks combines conventional goldsmithing and stone-setting techniques with the latest in computer-aided design technology to create distinctly modern pieces that complement both the contemporary and the traditional. Each piece is hand-finished and set by Jacks to her exceptionally high standard. her work is characterised by clean lines, simplicity and elegance and her style had been nationally recognised with awards such as the prestigious 'Design Innovation Award' for her work in platinum.

Based in Bristol, Jacks is happy to take on commissions for unique one-off pieces and works closely with her clients to produce that extra special item. her designs can be found at a number of leading galleries and designer jewellery outlets and she also accepts orders via her website (www.jacksdesign.co.uk) or directly from her workshop.
