Jo Pond - Making Beauty From Anything

cocoon pins
First take a look at the the titles of these pieces.
Jo Pond is a unique jewellery designer. I have never seen such inventive pieces. they all include discarded items, even silk cocoons.
Statement from Jo Pond - I choose to incorporate inconsistent unambiguous items, to create beautiful yet disconcerting objects, focusing on the vulnerability of imperfection.

Once again Di have outdone yourself with the most eccentric jewerly! In fact ...I was just reading over some of your posts that I have missed and all seem to have a bit of the eccentric quality. I would expect nothing less from you to show us this side of inspiration! Wonderful!

Wishing you and your family a deliciously wonderful holiday!

Or some such thing...
