Artist bio: Born in Udaipur-India, Vershali Jain is MA in Jewelry and Silversmithing from Edinburgh College of art, Scotland.
Through her art, Jain channels the dual identity she developed by living and traveling abroad while following her Indian cultural heritage. Drawing on her deep interest in the Indian motifs and connecting it to her ever changing surroundings, she explores layered relationships in her enameled jewelry. In her work wires and thin strips of sheet are wrapped and coiled into voluminous linear forms. Hot process liquid enamel binds metal elements together as a structural element as well as color point to create a vibrant textural piece.
Vershali currently works from her jewelry studio in Palo Alto, California.
