Thanks to Joanna from JoJoJewellery who tells us a bit more about her handmade jewellery.
My work is based around art silver clay and silver smithing techniques. I love using graphic prints and striking aged technique to give it its quirky edge of vintage New England, medieval and even Shakespearean inspired designs. My latest designs have started to incorporate tiny touches of enamel to create a new exclusive range for JoJoJewellery.

Today we find out more about Machi (formerly known as MagpieNest) and her stunning jewellery.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’ve been making since I can remember, even cutting the line from my children’s Snoopy fishing rod to make necklaces. It’s already been 3 years since I started full time as a jeweller and I’m still loving it.
