I am very happy to be part of The Heatons Arts Trail Pop-Up Event again this year.

Set in a warm, welcoming atmosphere with a charity-run café there will be something for everyone.
I will be exhibiting with over 60 selected designer-makers from across the UK with the GNCCF online event. GNCCF online goes live from 8am Saturday 21st May. For an opportunity to see work before the general public, sign up to the GNCCF mailing list here, for an exclusive invite to the Private View on Friday 20th May from 6pm.
This year, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne in 1952. To celebrate the occasion, the body which oversees UK hallmarking, the British Hallmarking Council, has sanctioned a commemorative component mark. Designed by Thomas Fattorini Ltd, the mark depicts an orb, and can be applied to precious metal, alongside a hallmark. Throughout all of 2022 the commemorative component mark can be applied along with the new year date letter. If you are commissioning a piece of jewellery by Jo and you’d like the commemorative hallmark including, you can request it be added.
