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.

what we get up to

So its back to work after a fab week in Sidmouth.
What better way than an early morning swim in a balmy 20 degree lake to start the day, feel very lucky to have @quayswim a quick drive away.

For a number of years now I have had the honour of making the official replica of Jane Austen’s Turquoise ring for The Jane Austen House Museum in Chawton Hampshire, where the original ring is on display. 
But how special is it to be asked to make a wedding ring to sit next to one of these lovely replica’s. The blue in the wedding ring is enamel and matches the vibrancy of the turquoise beautifully.

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.

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!
