Jenny Holdsworth is an award winning jeweller with a degree in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts from the Sir John Cass School of Art and Design.Her work is driven by the values of good design and quality craftmanship, and the promotion of British-made products over mass-produced, machine made imports.
Soon after graduating, Jenny worked with industry veteran Gordon Hamme to launch a new trade publication, working in London’s Hatton Garden and the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. This gave Jenny a valuable insight in the historic centres of the jewellery trade and her role took her to prestigious companies launching marketing campaigns nationally. Design work led her to new industries – the next chapter was working for an internationally renowned designer/makers of educational exhibits for museums and science centres.
Today, her passion for making has brought her back to the jewellery bench, applying the traditional silversmithing methods from her training with contemporary designs from her previous experiences.
