Jen Williams

Jen Williams is a Cornish jewellery designer/maker who lives on the West Penwith Peninsula. A place of ever changing untamed beauty that provides a constant source of visual inspiration.

Jen enjoys working with a variety of creative mediums to help develop her artistic processes and practise. This resonates in her jewellery, which is where she found her artistic niche.
Entirely handcrafted, Jen’s work has a sculptural quality that combines silver using traditional Silversmith techniques with eco-friendly recycled glass beads and semi-precious stones.

Each piece has an understated elegance highlighted by the rustic finish of her materials. The silver is shaped & beaten or reticulated to create rustic textures & organic shapes that mirror our wild landscape.

Her latest work turns it focus towards Cornwall’s coast & moorlands. In particular, the granite at the very core of the landscape & the many forms it takes. From the majestic cliffs & boulders that form our coastline, to the alluring rock pools, pebbles & sand patterns visible at low tide. Then inland, the ancient landmarks & quoits that are found on the moors near her home.

Her jewellery is very pure and tactile with a natural colour palette and a distinguishable style.

“Each piece of jewellery that I make is in some way, representative of my native surroundings and is my way of interpreting it in a wearable as well as visual art form.” – Jen Williams

Jen is a member of the Cornwall Crafts Association & her work has been recognised and exhibited over the years, in a range of galleries in Cornwall and across the UK.
