UK Magazine’s Challenge Design Winner

Wonderful surprise for me!  Making Jewellery, Britain’s top selling jewellery making magazine, held a design challenge back in July, with the winners to be announced in this month’s issue.  Imagine my glee at seeing my Sea Urchin and Soutache necklace taking first place!  Thrilled to see my necklace in a magazine and really pleased with their comments on it! :D

“Jo’s necklace is our winner; it’s beautifully designed and looks amazing. We particularly like the way she has used the colours from the photo as her inspiration.”

Mediterranean Inspirations

The sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean have always been a source of inspiration for me.  The colour, the sparkle, the life under the waves all have a place in jewellery.
