Winner of the 'President Award', selected by jury at the 44th International Exhibition of the Japan Enamelling Artist Association held at the
Ueno Royal Museum, Tokyo, in February 2011. Jasmine has also won an 'Award for Excellence' in the 24th International
Cloisonne Jewellery Contest, a juried exhibition which is part of the annual 'Japan Shippo Conference' in Tokyo
(Shippo is the Japanese word for Enamel)

"My jewellery is inspired by floral arabesques, rose windows and ancient eastern mandalas; diagrams of geometric clarity with graceful
symmetry and repeating patterns that represent balance, harmony and the infinite.

While researching the origins of these objects and images, I became intrigued at the cross cultural influences which can occur,
and some of the similarities of symbol and meaning, Mandalam is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning circle.

This series of sterling silver and enamel brooches are made using hand piercing, casting, and the champlevé technique;
they combine layered and intricately pierced silhouettes with delicately blended gradients, which can assemble to form
elaborate ornamental sequences, repeating to infinity.

Enamelling is an ancient process and is known for its complexities, the beauty of the material and the challenging
nature of the process continue to fascinate me." Jasmine Watson 2010
