jewellery designer & maker

After over 30 years making jewellery on Odiham High St, Jo Kelsey has moved her workshop to a new private studio where she continues to make beautiful collections and commissions.

 

as the workshop is a perfect size for one, Jo is still busy at the bench – if you have a project in mind, just drop us an email and we’ll go from there …

look forward to working with you soon!

what we get up to

Hand forged platinum cross with a black rhodium finish....love it! I was commissioned to remake a cross that just didn’t quite “hit the nail on the head” 😂 #platinum #cross #crosses #handforged #jewellery #odiham #hampshirelife #originalsodiham ...

A well loved ring I made at least 20 years ago has had a transformation, this time using Cad rather than handmade. I replaced the broken Peridot with a pink tourmaline and had the Aqua and Tanzanite stones re-polished, we even cast using the original 14ct gold too, fit for another 20 years plus now! #remade #goldrings #largerings #tanzanite #tourmaline #aquamarine #hampshirelife #odiham #jewellerydesign #jewellery #originalsodiham ...

Just had this beauty back in for a spruce up, I made it a few years ago but you wouldn’t know, it still looks just as fresh and look at that yummy blue topaz, makes me dream of crystal clear blue seas.....
Topaz comes in many different colours and shades of blue, this one is a Swiss blue, but it also comes in a paler Sky blue and a slightly darker London blue too!

This is the making of a multi strand ring, I’ve been making this for a very patient friend, I still have the diamonds to go in but I think she should be the first to see the finished ring. The original ring has a lot of meaning so its lovely to be able to transform it into a new and modern style, hope she likes it!!!

Happy Sunny Monday! Last week in the workshop has been just as busy and this week is hotting up nicely, and not just in the workshop, here’s to a lovely sunny week. #busyworkshop #jewellery #jewellerydesigner #bespokejewellery #diamonds #polo #rings #gold #handmade #odiham #odihampeople #originalsodiham #hampshirelife ...

Sometimes the simplest of things mean so much and that’s certainly the case here. I was taken aback by the wonderful review below for this lovely pinky ring, and thats why I love my job. ——————————————————— “I would like to say a massive thank you Jo, for the beautiful pinky ring you made for my daughter for her 21st. This is the second time you’ve made a beautiful piece of jewellery for me. The first time was a pendant for my eldest daughter’s 21st. When my Mum died I inherited a few pieces of her jewellery. I kept one diamond ring as I wanted to use the stones for both the girls in a piece of jewellery for their 21st they can cherish for the rest of their lives. It is also a piece of jewellery that has some real meaning. On both occasions you sympathetically designed jewellery to suit both girls. The service you provide is second to none, and the quality of each piece is outstanding. Due to Covid and my cancer, you came out of your way to collect the stones, and then when the pinky ring was finished you hand delivered it to us. I can’t thank you enough for making two beautiful pieces of jewellery that the girls will cherish forever” ....

Another busy week in the workshop, helped by the fact that its been a little cooler, I can’t be the only one to find it much harder to concentrate on work when the sun is shining!😊 #sunshine #jewellery #goldrings #handmadejewellery #silvercross #jewellerydesign #jewellerylover #odiham #hampshire #farnham #hookhampshire #originalsodiham #originals ...

We all need some positives and one i’ve noticed is that some of us have a bit more time to do those things we’ve been thinking about doing.
One of mine is learning to play the piano but for some its getting all those unworn pieces of jewellery finally made into a new bangle or ring. So here are a few pieces that I am working on or recently completed.
If you have something you would like to do please get in contact.

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.

Tom W

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.

Amanda C

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!
