About Jessica Sherriff

Jessica Sherriff creates a unique range of contemporary acrylic jewellery.  Inspired by the colours and views of her beautiful surroundings, Jessica takes photos in and around the North East, from the overall landscape to close up trees and flowers.  She displays them within the jewellery using a unique printing technique.  She uses the acrylic in a variety of thickness, and combines matt and shiny surfaces to create an unusual distorted, but intriguing effect to the images.  This technique allows her to create both bold and subtle colour waves and designs.  She enjoys exploring the possibilities of acrylic and her enthusiasm grows the more she experiments.
