JEMS is a Leeds based business working in precious and base metal. Emma is inspired by the love of Yorkshire, bizarre British ritual and the act of reminiscing. There is a friendly feel to this narrative work, from the little brolly to the roaming sheep, instantly recognisable and brings on a smile.
The innovative design of the Memory Vessel is a unique product, designed to preserve personal memories. The vessel is a pebble like locket that, when a memory is placed, it becomes a treasured object and a part of the person’s life story.
It is important to JEMS that all work is unique and differs slightly as that is the beauty of handmade goods. Jewellery as always been of great importance to Emma, she adorns a selection permanently. This gives her a different understanding of Jewellery as it is more than decoration, it is part of identity.
