Jacqueline Mina, OBE

Jacqueline Mina was born in Buckinghamshire, England in 1942. Having graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1965 she was a visiting lecturer there for twenty-two years, until 1994. 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. She has also just been awarded an OBE for services to Art.

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.
She is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, a Trustee of Bishopsland Educational Trust, and was a founding member of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. Occasionally holding solo shows – for example, at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1985, Lesley Craze Gallery and the Scottish Gallery in 2002. Jacqueline is frequently invited to participate in international exhibitions such as Schmuck 2000 in Munich, Collect 2004 - 2008 at the V&A in London, Collect 2009 at the new Saatchi Gallery in London, and Schmuck 2009 in Munich.
