Jessica Dickens being the daughter of a mother who paints, knits, crochets and even writes calligraphy, Jessica believed the creative gene skipped her. As a child, she excelled at stick figures, hearts and butterflies. Although she graduated from college with a B.A. in English she never really found her calling. It was not until she fixed a broken necklace with fishing wire and started going to bead shops, she not only discovered jewelry making, but she also discovered the artist she was meant to be. Almost by accident, jewelry making gave her a creative outlet to express herself and she found something that she loved to do.

Currently Jessica works with polymer clay and wire crochet jewelry, highlighting the beauty and rich textures it creates. She designs jewelry by marrying colors and textures that seem an unlikely pair to create eclectic pieces that capture attention. Jessica believes that each piece becomes an extension of the person wearing one of her designs. She currently shows her jewelry at Spectrum Art Gallery in Centerbrook, CT
