Mixed media jewellery which explores colour, texture and materials such as gemstones, handmade felt, rubber, glass and ceramic beads, wood, textiles and found objects.
Jo Strain is a designer/maker of mixed media jewellery. She incorporates an ever growing range of media into her pieces including gemstones, handmade felt, copper, glass and ceramic beads, wood, textiles and found objects.
Colour, texture and comfort are central to her design process. New materials, collaborations and constraints are key sources of inspiration. A long term focus is designing well behaved jewellery which is unexpectedly light weight.
Over the past year Jo has been exploring the ideas and contradictions which underpin the concept of nurture and expressing them through her jewellery.
Jo creates unique pieces, individual commissions and occasionally small run jewellery collections.
New work will be introduced throughout the trail.
