By painting with enamels and sketching through wire, I try to create playful yet delicate compositions. Colors are an important element in my work and using vitreous enamels is the center of my practice. It’s the joy of making; making something new, fresh and stretching the boundaries of what jewelry is and how it should be made, that motivates me.
My current work is designed around the narrative of Japanese term NATSUKASHII; bitter sweet remembrances.
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. The back of the brooches is in contrast to the front, representing the two worlds immigrant artists constantly come to face with. My designs are intersection of these contrasting experiences.

Born in Udaipur-India, Vershali Jain is MA in Jewelry and Silversmithing from Edinburgh College of art, Scotland. 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. She currently works from her jewelry studio in Palo Alto, CA.
