About Joanne Thompson
Using mainly silver & oxidised silver I use unit construction methods such as chain mail & hinging, assembling pieces into necklaces, bracelets and rings, giving forms which are three dimensional, flexible, tactile & durable. Movement is an important element in the wearing of these pieces and they are very pleasing to the touch and against the body. It is essential that the jewellery is comfortable and easy to wear. Each piece is hand-crafted at the bench, giving each piece a certain individuality.
