Yuka Jourdain designs and creates mixed media jewellery in an elegant and colourful contemporary style. Each unique piece is carefully hand crafted to achieve wearable and comfortable pieces of art and style.
She tends to select quality natural fibres as the main material for her work because of their beauty and comfortable nature incorporating with other materials to give some twists to her creations. In her recent works hand felted wool and shaped wires are stitched neatly together by hand using thread to make interesting 3D shapes.
Born and raised in Japan she moved to France then to the U.K. Multi-cultural experiences and encounters have certainly been affecting her work. Now based in Chapel-en-le-Frith she is always inspired by the surrounding nature. She admires that simple details in nature form such complicated and wonderful shapes together.
Her jewellery is on display for sale in galleries in Derbyshire and museum shops in Cheshire and Manchester. She exhibits at craft fairs as an individual artist and also as a member of Peak District Artisans.
