Jacks Turner Bristol workshop
I’m Jacks an independent jewellery designer, handcrafting precious contemporary jewellery from my workshop in the centre of Bristol.
Born and raised in the South West, I was lucky enough to have been guided at school to follow a career in the Arts. Skipping 6th form and leaving school far behind me, I started a 2 year course in Art & Design. Exploring all the creative disciplines, I found working in metal the most rewarding.
What followed was a degree at Birmingham School of Jewellery. Initially starting out as a silversmith designing and creating one off pieces of silverware. This has resulted in a deep knowledge of silver and goldsmithing. This was followed by 8 years managing the workshop for a top jewellery designer, which naturally lead on to me opening my own Bristol studio, to what is now Jacks Turner Jewellery!
I love the precision that you can achieve with precious metals. Allowing you to design and create innovative fine jewellery that will be cherished and loved for now and future generations.
Being part of that special and significant moment in someone’s life is a complete honour and one that I don’t take lightly.
It’s the satisfaction of seeing someones emotional first glimpse of their custom handmade piece of jewellery, that keeps me doing what I do.
I’ve been making and designing jewellery for 29yrs and it’s with this experience I can help guide you on your important journey in creating your special piece of bespoke handmade contemporary jewellery.
When you visit the Bristol workshop you’ll be greeted 1st by me and then very soon after by Hector Hound the workshop dog. But don’t worry he takes his important job, of looking cute while sleeping, very seriously and rapidly returns to his bed.
