Jo is a graduate of SilverHub Studios Jewellery School where she was taught by Lisa Arnott for two years before becoming a resident. She attended Winchester School of Art and studied Textiles for Fashion before moving on to study Japanese and Marketing at Oxford Brookes University. Her career has included graphic design, teaching, business management and administration.
Jo is currently working on her first collection influenced by the environment - specifically the shoreline around Edinburgh where she spends time with her family beach combing. The beaches of Scotland have a very specific and nuanced palette and she hopes to illustrate this through her jewellery.
Jo is particularly interested in stone setting using semi precious stones and found items to create interesting contrasts.
