Origin 2011: Day Three Highlights, Jo Hayes Ward & Momocreatura

Day three of Origin highlights come from Jo Hayes Ward and Momocreatura, two fantastic designers, with completly different styles of jewellery, but we love them both.

Constructing jewellery from small elemental units, Jo Hayes Ward creates intricate sculptural pieces with an architectural aesthetic. Her award winning designs include simple forms that on close inspection dissolve into a filigree of shimmering cubes, striking interlocking gold and diamond rings and bold three-dimensional brooches in gold, silver and aluminium.

She writes; My jewellery explores the boundaries between reality and fantasy through the depiction of fairy-tale inspired images. Influenced by medieval Europe, Victorian and Japanese pop culture, my references combine to create figurative macabre objects. The silver and gold pieces are finely handcrafted assemblages of child-like imagination, suggestive of ambiguous, twisted humour.
