American Craft Week-JLK Jewelry
October 7, 2023 - October 15, 2023
Celebrating American Craft Week all the time! JLK Jewelry at Jugtown has been hand making pottery cabochons using Jugtown Pottery clay and glazes since 1999. Crafted in the same manner as Ruskin ceramic plaques that were made in England at Ruskin Pottery. Named after John Ruskin, one of the proponents of the early Arts and Crafts Movement begun in 1860. Although most of the early pieces were set in pewter, Jennie uses the clays of and layers of Jugtown Pottery glazes to create her pieces (that often resemble early ones) and set them in her own sterling silver designs. Recently she has begun using enamels (another important part of that same early period) and incorporating them into her designs. She will be offering new work at Jugtown throughout the fall. There is a permanent case of her work in the sales cabin at Jugtown available during open hours.
