Jess Dare is a contemporary jeweller who works predominately in glass using lampworking techniques and non precious metal. Jess' work is influenced by nature, botanical specimens and memory, using nature as a metaphor to investigate concepts of the fragility and transience of memory. Flowers are a constant reminder that life is ephemeral, ever changing, momentary and precious.
