Janice Gilmore Pageant Jewellery

Jewellery, Textiles

Janice Gilmore is an artist creating embroidered jewellery and framed interior embroideries, inspired by decorative arts from ancient cultures. Janice's work is placeless and timeless, covetable, collectable and decorative.


Janice graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast in 1989 having completed a BA Honours Degree in Fine Craft Design, specializing in Embroidery. Janice combines machine stitching and hand beading to create jewellery and embroideries. She uses a sewing machine to build up interwoven layers of stitch forming the designs which are worked onto either vanishing muslin or dissolvable fabric. Fine beads are then hand stitched to the jewellery creating a rich and decorative finish.

Visiting countries including India and Morocco have inspired and influenced her work along with time spent perusing the collections within the V&A museum, London.  Based at her home in Lisburn and now celebrating over 30 years in business, Janice enjoys working from her studio surrounded by textiles that she has collected on her travels, along with the beautiful coloured threads and array of beads that she uses to create her jewellery.
