Jo Hayes Ward

The Jo Hayes Ward fine jewellery brand is now well into its second decade. Her designs are largely inspired by the concept of the many and the whole; the finer detail versus the big picture. Drawing inspiration from architecture, geology, nature and mathematics, she creates intricate, precise structures from small gold building blocks.

A primary focus of her design is harnessing the way that these small blocks and their facets reflect the light in multiple directions, as the wearer moves. To achieve this distinctive characteristic, Jo utilises a digital design environment and rapid prototyping (3D printing). Each of her elegant, luxury pieces of jewellery are then finished by hand, using traditional jewellery techniques, in our London workshop.
