Yuka Jourdain designs and creates mixed media jewellery in an elegant and colourful contemporary style. Each piece is unique and intricately hand crafted to achieve a wearable, comfortable and stylish piece of art.
She selects high quality natural fibres, incorporating the beauty and comfort of wool which she hand felts, with soldered/shaped wire. By carefully combining and hand stitching these components with thread, Yuka manipulates them into three-dimensional natural-inspired shapes.
Born and raised in Japan, Yuka has lived in France and now resides in Derbyshire’s High Peak. Multi-cultural experiences and encounters are reflected in her work as are her surroundings. She admires the intricate details of natural forms where complicated and wonderful shapes fit perfectly together.
Her jewellery is sold in galleries and shops in Manchester, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Gloucestershire. She exhibits at craft shows nationwide. Yuka is happy to accept commissions.
Six individual artists are exhibiting at this venue under the newly formed collective name of Peak Vision
