Discovering jewellery during her formative years at South Hill Park Arts Centre, Jo Pond progressed through Berkshire and Loughborough Colleges of Art and Design, establishing her design process some years later during her Master's at The School of Jewellery, Birmingham.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, showcased at selected exhibitions such as Schmuck in Munich, the V&A Museum London, Price Tower Arts Centre Oklahoma, Galerie Rob Koudijs Amsterdam, Velvet da Vinci Gallery San Francisco and Contemporary Applied Arts in London.
"Employing symbolic references of form, material and technique, I dabble in the potential for wearable items to become vehicles for communication; whether through sense, nostalgia, or knowledge".
Born in Chiswick, London, Jo is now based in rural Staffordshire. Alongside her practice as a studio jeweller, she is employed as a full-time lecturer at The School of Jewellery.
