Jean Murphy - Jewellery
Notes or article author name can be added in this area.
My name is Jean Murphy I have been making jewellery for eight years. Each of the pieces I make have an individual character. Very rarely do I repeat a piece.
Many of the materials I use have been sourced abroad and this lends to me using quite a variety of different materials.
I spent several years in academia gaining a Law degree and a B. A. Hons. In the people sciences and now lead a much more stress free life and enjoy the time I have making jewellery.
I spent two years at North Glasgow College studying glass fusion and slumping gaining HNC level in both subjects and incorporate glass into my jewellery. I have also enjoyed a leisure course at Glasgow College of Building and Printing learning silver smithing which again I incorporate into my jewellery.
I enjoy working in the gallery as we have such a variety of great artists and I am always amazed at the great work that is on show.
