Jennie Sharman makes beautifully crafted one-off pieces of wearable art. Everything, including vintage military regalia, fabric and lace, pearls, glass eyes and tiny skulls find their way onto heavily textured, elegant brooches, chokers and necklaces. Sharman also makes intriguing ‘boxes of curiosity‘ in which handpainted dolls are arranged in curious, faintly unsettling tableaux within elegant wooden boxes.
