Jo Bagshaw Jewellery
Jo Bagshaw is a York based jewellery designer and maker, creating special, handmade jewellery. Jo completed a BA (Hons) Degree in Metalwork and Jewellery in 2004 and since then has set up her jewellery business adding new collections. The central theme of her jewellery collections are their simple lines and shapes. She also likes to use a narrative; such as a title or a story, as represented in her ‘Fortune Fish Tell Tales’ collection of napkin rings, pendants, rings & earrings. Jo also uses lace to texture the silver before creating it into beautiful contemporary pieces.
Jo’s latest collection of silver jewellery is influenced by the negative shapes and shadows she has observed, producing beautiful pieces of wearable jewellery. She is inspired by everyday objects, vintage items and novelties, often incorporating messages or well known sayings into her jewellery that convey meaning & personalising the piece for the wearer.
All of her collections are designed and created in her workshop in York and can be ordered online on her website.
If you are looking for a beautiful, bespoke and hand crafted piece of silver jewellery then look no further. Jo was the perfect choice to make our wedding day jewellery. From our initial consultation visit right through to being presented with the finished product Jo was a joy to work with. We had very clear ideas about what we wanted but without any creative ability to transform our ideas into reality. Jo discussed what we wanted in detail, spent time producing drawings and mock ups, took into consideration our feedback and ideas, and put all of her creative energy and expertise into producing the most beautiful jewellery we could have imagined. Jo made my hair piece and earrings to match the lace on my dress, she also made my husbands cufflinks to reflect his taste, his musical preferences, and the styling of the suit he was wearing (something I don't think anyone else could have done as well). We also bought Silver heart pendants for the bridesmaids which were very gratefully received and which are regularly commented on by their friends. Thank you Jo, you're an absolute star!
