Clean, modern lines are the hallmark of Janice Derrick's jewellery.  Born in Trinidad, Derrick migrated to England at the age of sixteen, subsequently graduating with BA(hons) in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts from the prestigious Sir John Cass faculty at London Guildhall University.  Derrick has now returned to Trinidad to continue developing her jewellery and while she cites architecture as a major factor in her inspiration, a fact which is corroborated by the simple, clean lines and graphic imagery found in her pieces, many forms from nature are also evident particularly in the pieces she has designed since her return to the Caribbean.

All of the pieces are designed and handmade in her studio from different colours and carats of gold, sterling and oxidised silver and often several combinations of these metals can be found within the same design.  Derrick has exhibited her work in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the United States, Trinidad and Japan and her jewellery has been featured in several major publications including British Vogue.
