Collections of fragile materials reflecting the fragility of memory. Places full of possibility, unmapped landscapes and soft, blurred geographies are ideas at the core of Jessika Dawnn’s contemporary jewellery practice. Exhibition work often combines precious metal with ephemeral materials such as fabric, fibre and, more recently, seaweed. Blending these materials together is a key element in her practice and are utilised to explore a tactile and relational response to our surroundings, whether physical, memory-based or imagined.
