Nuala Jamison

Nuala Jamison’s sculptural jewellery was inspired by urban city spaces as well as the southern Irish coastline. She combined acrylic with silver or 18 carat gold. Using sheets or rods of acrylic, she cut, filed or carved it into a primary form. It was then treated with pumice and water over several weeks in order to achieve a soft, matte surface. This echoed the natural weathering action of waves on beach stones.
Jamison developed a unique way of dyeing and colouring clear material to enhance its reflective qualities. Her work explored the making of larger scale jewellery using a technique of painting dye on the surface of the acrylic and firing it in a kiln at high temperature.
Jamison studied Jewellery Design at Central St Martins, London, graduating in 1972. She taught Jewellery at Morley College, London and ran workshops from her studio in Co. Cork.
