what we get up to

Happy Saturday everyone, popped out for a coffee this morning to deliver this lovely set. I made the wedding ring a few years ago and now we have added a matching eternity ring …… happy client, happy jeweller 😁👏👏🙌

I can’t remember the last time I got to make a pair of cufflinks so I had fun making these. The sapphires given to my client were bought on an Indian adventure long ago and had been tucked away for years. Now they have made a beautiful gift for the son of the original giver!!
One of the lovely aspects of my work is there is often a lovely story too 😁

Always a treat to see one of the pieces you’ve made being worn and I got to see this beauty again yesterday. Rose gold with Citrine and diamonds. Check out the scalloped faceting on this stunning Citrine,another top notch gemstone 😁

Following on from my last post, I recycle all of the gold filings, keeping the different grades separate so that their fineness is maintained and can be used in the next piece of jewellery 😁

A little movie of some of the amazing pieces I’ve been busy working on over the last few months 👊😁

With every piece there are two drivers for me, two things that are of paramount importance and they are the the DD’s 😊 Design & Detail.

The design doesn’t have to be complicated but it does have to be perfect. Take the 8mm 18ct yellow gold ball studs for instance, a classic earring but too often made so thin even a sneeze would dent them 😆, not mine!!!!don’t they say that “the devil is in the detail” or is it just Halloween ! 🤫😆🎃 🎃😈

Having known the family for many years it was an absolute honour to be asked to make this engagement ring, and what a backdrop for the proposal too.
Congratulations to you both , I loved sharing this journey with you, from choosing the diamonds and developing the design together over many coffee’s, what a super couple you are and I wish you every happiness 😁

So it’s not even Ch#*st*#s yet and already burning the midnight oil 🤫, its difficult to stop working when you get to play with beautiful diamonds like these. This ring has two more bands to be added yet so I best get on with it 😊

from the workshop

Designs & Commissions

During the design process, you can either be as involved as you like or you can leave Jo to design and create your perfect piece. For sentimental reasons, we are quite often asked to take unworn, broken or inherited jewellery to melt down and redesign into something new to enjoy wearing.

Jewellery Repairs

Alongside our design facility, our fully equipped workshop offers a wide range of services – from restoring a much loved piece or replacing a lost stone; to ring sizing and re-stringing pearls, we are happy to undertake the majority of repairs when possible.

Insurance Valuations

We are lucky and proud to have a long-standing relationship with Shirley Mitchell FGA DGA, who provides a comprehensive and independent valuation service. A multi-award winner, Shirley is recognised as one of the premier Valuers in the country.

a little bit about Jo

After 2 years at the prestigious Sir John Cass Faculty Of Arts in London, Jo began her jewellery business at the age of 20 and opened her first shop in Odiham High Street in 1989.

As a Certified Diamond Grader (HRD Antwerp) and self-confessed gem-aholic, Jo’s attention to detail and craftsmanship makes her finely crafted jewellery highly sought after.

Given her passion and ever-increasing knowledge, Jo’s business inevitably evolved – and after over 30 years owning a Jewellers & Gallery in Odiham High St, Jo now works from a private studio.

recreating a piece of history …

Back in 2014, Jo was commissioned by the Jane Austen House Museum to reproduce the author’s famous turquoise ring – with the word ‘Chawton’ laser engraved on the inside in Jane’s handwriting.

As the only jeweller in the world with permission to reproduce the piece, Jo is privileged to have had the once-in-a-lifetime chance to handle the original ring when she was making notes for the reproduction.

your kind words

I’m lucky enough to have had various pieces made by Jo Kelsey, everything from my wedding ring to necklace, bracelet, earrings and I have loved each one.

Thanks Jo, it is great to be able to wear my ring again. I love your new way of working – meeting up over coffee is so much more fun than popping into a shop!

Sue M

Jo made a wonderful pair of earrings for us. Lovely to have something truly unique. Jo interpreted my design beautifully and the quality is amazing.

tell us what you’ve got in mind …

As Jo is normally busy on the bench, she doesn’t always get the chance to answer the phone, so it’s probably easier if you send an email outlining your project and we can go from there!
