Janice Zethraeus

Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

Born in Massachusetts, USA, Janice enjoyed an earlier career as an illustrator in Sweden. After moving to London, she retrained in jewellery and silversmithing design. Janice graduated from London Metropolitan University in 2010 and her jewellery immediately gained recognition. She won the Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office Technology Award, and most recently The Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council awarded her a commendation in the Contemporary Gold & Platinum Jewellery category.  Janice's jewellery is beautifully delicate in appearance. The fluid lines that distinguish her work are inspired by the undulating lines in plant life and landforms. The flowing detail in leaves and vines and the meandering forms in sand dunes, lava flows and waves influence the streamlined interpretation in her jewellery designs. Volume and structure are key to her work, the linear forms often highlighted with diamonds or coloured gemstones.
