Jessica Akerman is an artist and maker.
Trained in sculpture and drawing, her accessories are wearable artworks, made by hand in sustainable leather offcuts, cork, embroidery and veneer.
Her jewellery range launched in 2017 with Gerimus, finely foil embossed pendants and brooches featuring Early Warning System military architecture in the British landscape.
The Eyes Open Open Eyes series also alludes to surveillance culture, and staying aware in a world where the politics of division is on the rise. Made using leather offcuts and stunning foils, these embossed beauties jazz up any outfit.
In 2018 she celebrates a different aspect of the centenary of women's suffrage with a collectable sew-on patch launched each month. 30% of sales from all patches will go to three charities supporting women and gender equality.
