Jenifer graduated with a BA Hons in Three Dimensional Crafts from the University of Brighton in 1996 and since then has been making jewellery, lockets, small dishes and containers in precious and occasionally base metals. Every piece is hand made in her studio in Hove, East Sussex, and is inspired by the natural world, with the two main sources of inspiration being seeds and seedpods and rocks and stones.
