Jo Strain is a designer and maker of mixed media jewellery. She incorporates an ever increasing range of media into her pieces including gemstones, handmade felt, glass and ceramic beads, wood, textiles and found objects. Jo is always exploring the possibilities of new materials as part of her designs.
Colour, contrasting textures, materials and comfort are central to her design process. Her sketch book is always to hand. New materials, working within constraints and collaborations with artists from other fields are all key sources of inspiration.
She creates unique pieces, individual commissions and occasionally small run jewellery collections.
