About Joanne Thompson
The circle is forever the starting point for each of my jewellery designs. Ancient chain maille patterns are my constant inspiration; I experiment with the scale, weight, form and texture of the chains, making necklaces, bracelets and earrings which are voluminous yet light, tactile and extremely durable. I prefer to concentrate on a palette of black and white (silver and oxidised silver). My aim is to create striking contemporary jewellery which can be worn for both special occasions and everyday.
