About Jen Ricketts

Hand Pierced Silverware

Award winning silversmith Jen Ricketts gained a First Class Honours Degree from De Montfort University and went on to complete a year long silversmithing residency at Bishopsland. Jen has received awards from The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council London and from the Craft&Design Magazine. In 2015, she completed a prestigious commission for the Lord Mayor of Sheffield which was subsequently presented to the Queen on for her visit to Sheffield on Maundy Thursday. The piece was then on exhibition in Buckingham Palace in Summer 2017.

Jen has perfected the silversmithing technique of hand saw piercing. She uses the finest of saw blades to hand cut her designs. Her current work concentrates on making bespoke functional silverware of intricate city skylines and intriguing silhouettes of countryside scenes.

Each piece is exquisitely detailed and can be tailor made to commission, featuring images of special or memorable places. Jen always begins a commission with a drawing of the design. These drawings then form the template with which Jen hand cuts the design from silver, creating a unique piece of contemporary silverware.

About Jen

Jen makes everything by hand using traditional silversmithing techniques. All designs are drawn by Jen before being applied to the silver. The process is time consuming but results in intricately detailed pieces of artwork. 

Jen specialises in creating custom made one off designs but she has also created a range of jewellery collections available to order online.
