Jayne Williams creates one off pieces of jewellery, using a variety of different techniques and materials. All pieces are designed and handmade by Jayne in her own London workshop and she is also able to undertake repairs and offer workshops in jewellery techniques. Jayne makes her own costume beads, but also sources silver and interesting and unusual stones from a variety of suppliers.
Examples of Jayne's creations are shown on this website and all her items are original pieces, so these are just examples
and do not represent the full product range available.
Jayne is able to work on individual commissions, so if you have a special day coming up, please contact Jayne to discuss your requirements.
If you wish to learn how to make your own jewellery, Jayne loves to teach and can arrange individual classes so please get in touch via the contact button. Jayne is also happy to teach groups and do jewellery parties for adults and children in your own homes.
"Just to say Jayne - I really love my new ring made so beautifully by you, and for all you did to make it bespoke for me! And I am just delighted at last to be able to wear the little plaited ring."
"Jayne I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a painstaking and unusual repair for me. You have given a new lease of life to a simple but much loved piece of jewellery."
"The ring is perfect! Thank you so much."
"I have received the necklace, I can not express to you how perfect it is. It's so gorgeous. Again, Thank you so much. Love it. I will certainly recommend you to friends and family."
I started to design jewellery about 15 years ago following the chance discovery of an amazing bead shop that specialised in semi precious stones. I discovered I had a talent for bead work and was then bitten by the "beaders bug" leading me to hunt anywhere I visit in the world for interesting stones and beads to incorporate into my creations.
As my skills developed, I decided to study jewellery design and silver smithing skills and in 2007, I qualified for the City and Guilds Level 2 Certificate in Design and Craft (3D Studies) in the context of Jewellery. Following this, I have undertaken a variety of short courses, including a master class at the Victoria and Albert Museum that resulted in a piece of my work being exhibited at the V&A in a student exhibition in the
Sackler Centre for Arts Education (see above).
I love to learn and use a variety of techniques, so over the years, I have taken a number of short courses to develop my skills and my knowledge of materials. The portfolio of techniques and materials I now use, includes silver, beads, semi-precious stones, precious metal clay, polymer clay,
wire crochet, resin, enamel and French knitting (with wire.)
I am also a qualified trainer and love to teach my jewellery skills. I have taught classes for a variety of community groups, including people with disabilities, children and the elderly.
