Joanne Tinley

‘My jewellery is crafted to last lifetimes, designed with care to be cherished and passed down the generations, yet intended to be worn every day. A gift of love, a precious reminder of the birth of a child, an 18th birthday treasure, or a simply a treat for yourself to celebrate how unique you are.

For me, jewellery is the most important part of an outfit, and usually the starting point when planning what to wear to a wedding, party or even a day out with the family.

All of my designs are made by me in my studio in The Sorting Office in Eastleigh, Hampshire using sterling and fine silver, 24k gold, semi-precious stones and handcrafted lampwork glass beads.

The Felted Jewels Collection combines beautifully textured and tactile sterling silver with rich jewel-like colours of Merino wool. The collection began with large oval and smaller round double-sided pendants, with one side featuring a textured asymmetrical heart and the other a beautiful pierced design through which the needle-felted wool peeks. Matching round brooches and cufflinks have now joined the collection, and I am sure it won’t end there – owls are featuring in my sketchbook at the moment!’
