Jacqueline Mina

Continuously fascinated by precious metals Jacqueline has, over the years, become well-known for extending the possibilities of fusion between gold and platinum and for using traditional goldsmithing techniques in unorthodox ways.
The recipient of many prizes and commissions, her greatest accolade was to be judged the winner of the Jerwood Prize for Applied Art 2000. Major public collections hold important examples of her art, amongst which are the V&A Museum, the Crafts Council and the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in London; National Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh; Cleveland Collection of Contemporary Jewellery at  Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum of  Design, New York.
